Black Raspberry Sparklers Recipe

1 bottle of Black Raspberry Sparkling ICE, divided
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 Apple Juice
3 envelopes plain Knox gelatin
1 1/2 cups chopped raspberries
Sweetened whipped cream (optional, for topping)

In a small saucepan, heat 1 1/2 cups of Sparkling ICE and lime juice to a boil. In the meantime, place apple juice in a medium heat-proof bowl and sprinkle gelatin on top. When gelatin is soft, pour hot juice over and stir to thoroughly combine. Stir in remaining Sparkling ICE. Distribute raspberries among 4 small dishes or ramekins (or put all in a larger container for family-style serving) then evenly distribute gelatin mixture. Place in refrigerator and allow to cool until set, approx 4-6 hours or overnight. Top with whipped cream, if desired.
