All during my younger years I had never entertained the idea of making jello shots. Probably at that time thinking it was just too much work for the pay off. It wasn't too long ago I went to a ball game with neighbors and she had a cooler full. Even though I ate them - they were hard to swallow !! Colors were pretty but the taste -->> way too much VODKA !!
That's when I started looking up recipes and they were all pretty much the same; water, gelatin and vodka. So with an idea in mind, I set out to experiment. Which really didn't end up a true experiment because they came out so lovely. What do I mean by lovely ? Awesome hues, perfect texture and very edible flavor.
You will need:
1.25 ounce clear cups with lids.
16 to 32 ounce measuring cup with pour spout.
8 ounce measuring cup.
Your choice of gelatins, juices, and liquors. (and vodka)
Chill the liquors and vodka (juices should be cold already). Measure the boiling water in large container and dissolve gelatin according to package instructions. Slowly mix in rest of liquids, pour into cups that are waiting on cookie sheet and place in refrigerator. Once set, place cap and...
Let the party begin !!
