...and that I'm probably going to leave in 17 minutes if I can.
I made jell-o shots for my kickball team. Some of them have been reading the Den (hi guys!) and some of them asked for the recipe I used. I'll post it right here, but I got it from WikiHow. Just ignore all the spam in the article for the squeezable jell-o shot cups.
I used "Twist-n-Shot" cups. They hold two ounces and you can twist them to get the shots out. They're also re-usable, though not the one that somebody stepped on. They're also a hell of a lot of fun (not) to clean, believe you me.
Here's what I used:
Boil 2 cups (16 oz.) of water
When it's boiling, pour into a mixing bowl with 6 oz (one big package) of orange Jell-o.
Mix until dissolved.
Add 6 oz. (3/4 cup) cold water and 10 oz. of orange Smirnoff. (The last batch ran low on vodka; I used 7 oz. Smirnoff and 3 oz. Cointreau, and those were quite tasty).
Pour into cups and chill.
Now that I've tried them, I've got three other things I want to do:
- Find vegan gelatin. We have at least one vegan on the team.
- Make different flavors. Orange is the official color of our team (DC Detention) so orange is the usual flavor, but next time I want to experiment. One of our teammates is a huge margarita fan. I'd love to try Sazerac ones, Gary Regan has a whiskey sour recipe (along with margarita) in The Joy of Mixology, and I've been threatening people with absinthe ones.
- Black cherry ones, made as above - I've got most of a bottle of black cherry Smirnoff and one 3 oz package of black cherry jell-o thanks to various things.
