  • 18 gelatin sheets
  • 8-ounces simple syrup
  • 12-ounces Ketel One Vodka
  • 2-ounces Midori liqueur
  • 12-ounces 7-Up or lemon-lime soda
  • 6-ounces fresh lime juice


  1. Place the gelatin sheets in a bowl, cover with cool water and soften for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat the simple syrup in a small saucepan over medium-high heat to just a boil. Remove from the heat.
  3. Squeeze the water from the gelatin sheets and place in the simple syrup, stirring to dissolve the gelatin. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the vodka, liqueur, soda, and lime juice. Add the gelatin and simple syrup mixture, stir briefly to combine.
  5. Pour the mixture into a plastic wrap-lined, extra-large, straight-sided pan (or a hotel pan with 2 1/2-inch sides) and cover. Refrigerate to allow the gelatin to completely set, preferably overnight.
  6. To serve, unmold the gelée onto a parchment-lined half-sheet pan, remove the plastic wrap and cut into desired shapes.
