“I know a girl who reminds me of Cher
She’s always changing
The color of her hair
She don’t use nothing
That ya buy at the store
She likes her hair to be real orange
She uses tangerines.”

Like any rock and roll junkie hailing from Oklahoma, I love The Flaming Lips. Here I celebrate one of my all-time favorite bands the only way I know how – with a boozy gelatin mold. Inspired by their popular song, “She Don’t Use Jelly,” this gelatin combines the fantasticness of tangerines and sparkling wine – think tangerine mimosas. Yum…

Recipe for 3.5 cups

  • 2 packets Knox gelatin
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 ¾ cups freshly squeezed tangerine juice, strained to remove pulp
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup sparkling wine (I prefer Cava, but a Prosecco or Champagne would work as well)

Put ½ cup of cold water in a medium bowl and sprinkle 2 packets of gelatin on top of the water.  Set bowl aside.

Put tangerine juice and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a low boil until sugar dissolves. Add to the bloomed gelatin. Stir until gelatin dissolves. Stir in sparkling wine. Spoon mixture into mold(s). Put in refrigerator until set, at least 4 hours.
