  • 1 Cup apple cider unfiltered, at room-temperature or chilled. I used Riveridge Honeycrisp Blend Apple Cider
  • 1 Envelope gelatin unflavored, I used Knox gelatine
  • ½ Cup whiskey apple-flavoured, I used Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Apple
  • ¼ Cup whiskey cinnamon-flavoured, I used Fireball Cinnamon Whisky
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon juice freshly-squeezed
  • ½ Teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional Garnishes

  • whipped cream
  • pie crust cut-outs
  • apple pie spice or cinnamon


  • Pour unfiltered apple cider into a small saucepan. Sprinkle unflavored gelatin evenly over top of the cider. Allow the gelatin to “bloom” for 5 minutes.**
  • Warm apple cider over medium heat for about 5 minutes, whisking until gelatin is completely dissolved. Do not boil. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in apple-flavored whiskey, cinnamon whiskey, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Transfer into a heat-proof container with a spout, such as a glass measuring cup, for easy pouring.
  • Pour gelatin mixture into disposable 2-ounce shot glasses. Refrigerate for 4 hours, or until set. Top with whipped cream, pie crust cut-outs, and apple pie spice, if desired.

** “Blooming” your gelatin, allows the liquid to soak into the granules evenly, giving you a smooth texture. Mixing gelatin directly into heated liquids can lead to solid gelatin clumps in your final product.
