10 gelatin sheets
100 grams of water
1 bottle of glowing wine, cava, cider, champagne (750 ml)
A number of threads of saffron
150 grams of sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
Gold dye powder
A pinch of honey, golden syrup, maple syrup …
Put the gelatin sheets to hydrate within the very chilly water. In a saucepan, add 200 ml of glowing wine, the saffron and the sugar. Warmth till it begins to prepare dinner. Flip off the warmth and add the well-drained gelatin. Stir till built-in.
Add the water the place you’ve hydrated the gelatins and the remainder of the glowing wine and blend nicely. Pressure the liquid and fill the glasses. I exploit a funnel to keep away from staining the glass of the glass with splashes. Put within the fridge for 4-6 hours.
In a small bowl, however sufficient to suit the glasses, tint the sugar with powdered golden coloring. When the gelatin has set, unfold the rim of the glasses with honey (or golden syrup, maple syrup …) and put within the sugar.

→ Should you would not have golden coloring, you’ll be able to attempt to frost the glasses with brown sugar, though it will likely be much less intense.
→ Frost the glasses when serving. Should you depart them frosted within the fridge, the sugar can soften due to the humidity.
