Banh Mi Jello Shot

Banh Mi
granulate gelatin
jalapeno infused rum
coconut milk

Nobody loves a Vietnamese hoagie more than Mi. The thing I was most excited about to South Philly from Fishtown was the availability of Banh Mi sandwiches. These jello shots are inspired by the spicy, cilantro sandwiches (warm baguettes eaten separately).

We infused white rum with fresh jalapenos, which are so potent we only steeped it for about an hour. We actually used a little extra agave in the lime cilantro lime layer (the top of the domes) to curb the 'heat' of the rum.  The coconut cream is very sweet out of the bottle, so it mixed well with the savory liquor.

The jello shots are placed on sesame crackers, from Kung Fu Hoagies, a new (vegan) banh mi food cart that I'm thrilled comes to Passyunk Ave sometimes.

It's hot as hell in Philadelphia (if hell is about 85 degrees) and what's better than an orange creamsicle from the ice cream truck on a hot day? If you don't feel like waiting 'til the truck makes it's rounds at, like, 11 pm, have I got a jello shot for you!

Chocolate Covered Spodee

Cherry wishniak soda
Granulated gelatin

Last week we made Jello shots for the launch of Spodee, a depression era spirit. It's a spiced and sweetened wine, fortified with moonshine, and it is delightful. I'm completely done with putting chocolate bitters in Sandeman's Reserve- Spodee is more affordable and delicious.

We had a blast at the launch party, which was in a warehouse with INDOOR food trucks, an ice cream tricycle and a plaid clad blue grass band. Hand-to-god we were in Fishtown, not Brooklyn. Chrissy, Moe's sister took a lot of great pictures but unfortunately I'm in most of them :(
