Growing up, I had mixed feelings about jello. I'm not sure if I ever really liked it or not. However, this adult dessert totally hits the spot. Best of all, it's cruelty-free! You can find plant-based jel desserts in most natural foods stores. The cherry / pinot noir combo tastes great but feel free to play around with different flavors of jello and types of wine. A great resource for finding vegan wine (and other booze) is barnivore.
For wine jello shots, double the recipe and pour into shot glasses or other small cups.
Pour the jel powder into mixing bowl, preferably one with a pour spout. Add the boiling water to the jel powder and stir until powder is dissolved. Add the wine and mix well. Pour evenly into 4 wine glasses. Chill in the refrigerator until set.
