Aperol Orange Wedges
Made with bitter orange, rhubarb and a host of other botanicals, Aperol gives these bright orange jigglers just a hint of mouth-watering bitterness to remind you that, despite the fact that you’re eating Jell-O, you’re a functioning adult.
Ingredients: 1 package Orange Jell-O, half of a packet unflavored gelatin, 1 cup boiling water, .5 cups vodka, .5 cups Aperol, 6 navel oranges
Slice oranges in half, through the navel. Scoop the fruit out of the rinds using a paring knife or your hands, taking care not the tear rinds.
Pour the vodka and Aperol into a bowl and sprinkle in the half-package of unflavored gelatin (extra gelatin makes for a firmer final product).
Empty the Orange Jell-O package into a large glass measuring cup with a pouring spout (trust us on this) and top with one cup of boiling water. Stir to dissolve the powder, then stir in the vodka, Aperol and gelatin mix.
Set the orange halves on a baking sheet and fill them with the Jell-O mix. Place in the fridge to set for at least four hours.
Once the Jell-O has set, slice into wedges and serve.
