Vodka Red Squares

Ingredients:
Serves 4
1 cup strawberry gelatin
1 cup Lemon Peel Vodka (see recipe below)
Fresh mint to decorate
Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)

1. Mix the gelatin in a medium bowl with 2 cups boiling water, or as per the instructions on the packet, until the gelatin has completely dissolved.

2. Stir in half the Lemon Peel Vodka and pour into a 5 x 8-inch pan. Refrigerate until firm„about 4 hours.

3. Dip the bottom of the pan and a small knife into warm water for about 15 seconds. Use the knife to cut the gelatin into 1-inch squares. Serve in chilled martini glasses garnished with mint. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.

Lemon Peel Vodka
4 lemons
3 cups vodka

1. Wash the lemons. Using a zester of vegetable peeler, peel the skin to create narrow ribbons. Scrape away any remaining pith.

2. Put the peel into a large jar and add the vodka. Store in a dark, dry place for about 2 weeks, shaking the jar occasionally.

3. Strain through cheesecloth, discard the peel and store in a bottle ready for use.

Recipe by John Rose: Did you know the clear, odorless and tasteless spirit does wonderful things in cooking? It marinades, tenderises meat, great for de-glazing pans and adding flavor, while in cream sauces it lowers the boiling point and so helps to prevent curdling and all while delivering a unique, delectable taste. In The Vodka Cookbook, John Rose takes vodka out of the martini glass and into the kitchen with over 100 recipes. (Reprinted with permission from The Vodka Cookbook by John Rose, Kyle Books)
