Servings: 12 shots
- 1/2 cup mint leaves fresh
- 1/2 cup sugar + 1 teaspoon
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 3 drops green food coloring
- 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
- 1 cup Jameson Irish Whiskey
- fresh additional mint leaves for garnish
Place fresh mint leaves in a small dish. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar. Using a muddle stick or a wooden spoon, press down on the leaves and twist. Repeat the action several times until the mint leaves release oil and smell minty. Set aside.
Pour water and lime juice into a medium sauce pan. Sprinkle gelatin powder over the water; whisk to combine and let stand 5 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup of sugar and the muddled mint leaves to the pan. Whisk to combine. Cook mixture over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, whisking gently until mixture is hot and the sugar and gelatin are dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
Strain the liquid to remove the mint leaves. Return liquid to the pan and add the whiskey. Add green dye.
Spray silicone molds with cooking spray to allow easy release after gelatin is set. Wipe the excess spray from the molds. Carefully pour liquid into the molds.
Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, until fully set.
Remove from molds and place on tray or small appetizer plates. Garnish with mint leaves, or edible gold stars!
