The sour apple martini meets Irish whiskey in this fun and very lively cocktail recipe. The green Dublin apple cocktail is an ideal drink for St. Patrick’s Day. Then again, it’s also perfect if you feel like pouring a little whiskey in your appletini.
 
This recipe is very simple and requires three ingredients. Making the switch from the vodka used in the average apple martini to Irish whiskey makes a tremendous difference. It adds a depth to the flavor that is impossible to get from the clear liquor.
 
Also, be sure to use white cranberry juice and green sour apple schnapps. This combination is responsible for producing the brilliant green color that makes this drink look as great as it tastes.

Guinness and Green Jell-O Shot

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup Guinness
  • 4 envelopes (4 tablespoons total) unflavored gelatin (divided)
  • 1/4 cup Irish whiskey
  • 1 1/2 cups water (hot; divided)
  • 1/2 cup Irish cream
  • Green food coloring
Steps to Make It

 

Make the Guinness Gelatin Base
  1. Pour the Guinness into a bowl and add 3 envelopes (3 tablespoons) of gelatin. Allow this to rest for about 2 minutes.

  2. Add Irish whiskey and 1 cup of hot water. Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

  3. Pour equal amounts into shot glasses, leaving enough room for the second layer.

  4. Refrigerate for about 20 to 30 minutes.

Make the Green Gelatin Layer

If you’re using the same bowl for this layer, wash it first. You may not be able to see it, but there’s likely some gelatin left inside that’s already setting up.

  1. Pour the Irish cream into a bowl and add 1 envelope (1 tablespoon) of gelatin. Allow this to rest for about 2 minutes.

  2. Add 1/2 cup of hot water and stir until the gelatin is dissolved.

  3. Then, add about 4 drops of green food coloring and stir. Add more drops to intensify the green if you like.

  4. Slowly pour the green Irish cream gelatin on top of the partially set Guinness gelatin.

  5. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until completely set up.
