“Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms. […] If we cannot learn to actually enjoy those small differences, to take a positive delight in those small differences between our own kind, here on this planet, then we do not deserve to go out into space and meet the diversity that is almost certainly out there.”
Welcome to the Velvet Room, a classy blue cocktail with curious floating gelatin bits that taste sweet and pack a kick. Watching them bob around in the blue sparkling wine can be a little hypnotic, you might even see a glimpse of your future.
- 1 shot vanilla vodka
- 1 shot blue curacao
- 1 tsp Blavod Jelly (recipe is below)
- Champagne or Sparkling wine (white is best to preserve the beautiful blue colour)
Pour the vanilla vodka and blue curacao into a champagne flute and add the Blavod Jelly. Top off the glass with champagne.
- 1/2 cup Blavod Black Vodka (regular vodka will work too, but I like the colour contrast with the Black Vodka)
- 1/2 cup Grape juice
- 1 packet Knox gelatin
Heat the grape juice in a small saucepan and dissolve the gelatin in it. Once all the gelatin clumps are gone, remove the grape juice from the heat, and add the vodka. Pour the mixture into a bowl and allow to set up in the fridge. Usually an hour or so.
Once the gelatin is set, run chunks of the jello through a potato ricer, or mill in a food processer until fluffy. Set aside until you are ready to drink.
