Vodka & Raspberry jelly-pops, Vodka and Raspberry jellies with Red raspberry sugar and Pink rose sugar dips.
To make this party platter I first started with the jellies, bringing separately first the vodka and a little agar to the simmer, whisking to dissolve the agar and pouring into a mould before setting in the fridge. I then did the same with the raspberry soda and poured this over the almost set vodka and placing back into the fridge to fully set. Next I made the raspberry film and the vodka stand by the same process only using gellan gum instead of agar, the raspberry and gellan were brought to the boil, whisking and poured on to a flat tray to set and the vodka was made the same and poured in to a mould to set. I made the sugars by placing half a cup each of white sugar into two separate jars with tight fitting lids, I then added red colouring and raspberry flavouring to one and pink colouring and rose water to the other. Placing the lids on I shook each jar vigorously for about half a minute to incorporate the colours and flavours through the sugar crystals resulting in pink & red sugars to be used for dipping.
