Conconut Milk Panna Cotta Pomegranate ShotsThis Coconut Milk Panna Cotta Pomegranate Shots recipe is one of the most complex recipes we used for the graduation and confirmation Shot Glass Mini-Servings party we hosted last month, but it’s totally worth a bit of extra effort. The delicate flavor is delightful. We made a few changes to the original recipe, which is here. We found the recipe needed extra gelatin to set well.

The light flavor from the coconut milk in this recipe is really a treat. If you love pomegranate as much as we do, you will love these. It’s sweet but not overpowering. Enjoy!
