  • 8 oz. Premium ginger beer
  • 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 5 teaspoons of unflavored gelatin

Method

You will need a shot vessel; an ice cube tray is a good option.

Remove from the heat source, add vodka to your mixture and stir.

Pour the liquid into the ice cube tray and refrigerate for a minimum of four hours or until it sets completely and ready to serve.
