Jello shots without the trash

Jello shots without the trash
Ingredients: Strawberries (the biggest ones you can find) Strawberry jelly powder Creme de cacao Vodka Chocolate chips (optional) Wash the strawberries and pick out the nicest ones. You will need about 3 boxes worth of strawberries for 2 cups of jello. Cut off the bottoms so the strawberries can stand up but be careful to not make holes for the jello to leak out. Cut off the tops and hollow out the insides. For chocolate dipped strawberries, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave on low heat and then dip each strawberry in the melted chocolate. Mix 1 cup of boiling water and the jelly powder.

Cocktails Inspired by Evolutionary Stages of Pokémon The sophisticated Pokémon trainer demands a beverage that will meet the needs of his or her discerning palate. The Pokémon cocktails developed by the author(s) of the Drunken Moogle blog do just that, with a series that include three separate drinks inspired by each of the evolutionary stages of various pocket monsters. Each series begins with a shot, moves on to a midsize drink served in a tumbler, and then a highball-sized cocktail. It’s notable that each drink builds on the previous, so the Charmeleon contains the ingredients from the Charizard, and so on. The Charmander series looks particularly interesting, partly because it uses the truly excellent Fireball cinnamon whiskey, but also because you can light them on fire.

Watermelons: Nature's Keg Still pumping your watermelons full of rum? What is this, summer camp? It’s time to grow up and start converting your watermelons into kegs. The instructions for the Watermelon Keg come from none other than the National Watermelon Promotion Board—which surprisingly is an actual thing. Essentially you slice off a thin layer from the bottom end, slice open the top, scoop out the meat (or liquefy with booze), and jam a spigot in the front. Presto!

...stumbled upon yesterday was a list of interesting drinks. I told you guys that I'm wasting a lot of time nowadays looking at pretty pictures and interesting ideas on Pinterest.I already have a bunch of different boards for all kinds of stuff - be it food or interior design. But I especially liked the idea of someone making up Harry Potter related drinks. And then I googled the term and came up with a bunch of interesting stuff.

Homemade Irish Cream Liqueur Here is another really yummy treat, Homemade Irish Cream Liqueur! I love it added to a cup of coffee! Irish Cream Liqueur from Bon Appetit 1 – 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk 1 cup Irish whiskey Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee Update 4/2014: Be sure to check out my new, improved cold-brewed iced coffee tutorial with step-by-step instructions and lessons learned since first posting about cold-brewed iced coffee. I started making my iced coffee this way a couple of years ago, thanks to this New York Times recipe that convinced me to do so. You add coffee grounds to cold water and let it sit at room temperature for several hours. Then you strain it through a coffee filter, and the result is a deep, rich, dark, and caffeine-packed glass of iced coffee. It’s a concentrate, so you’ll want to dilute it with water unless you’re in need of a serious buzz.

S'moretini Shooters Me again. Here to convince you that you need yet another trendy, insanely-flavored bottle of booze. I do what I can. I know what you’re thinking. 30 Drinks Every Bartender Should Know So I have a new hire who is about to bartend her first bartending shift and I was about to e-mail her 30 drinks every bartender should know and looking for a list (so I wouldn’t have to make it) and almost every list I found was absolutely ridiculous. For example, one site listed the Bocci Ball (don’t know what it is, probably never will as in 12 years no one has ever ONCE asked me for one). Or the Freddy Fudpacker (aka The Cactus Banger) – once again NEVER HEARD anyone order either of these ever ONCE. I’m not naming any drinks on this list where the ingredients are the name i.e. vodka tonic, amaretto sour, or gin and juice. 1.

Chocolate Guinness Goodness Recipe at Epicurious Editor's note: This recipe was developed by Shane Philip Coffey, the chef at Alias restaurant on New York City's Lower East Side. This rich and luscious dessert came about because I needed a special dessert for a St. Patrick's Day tasting menu. I was on a mission to use my favorite beer, Guinness, something I consider to be one of Ireland's gifts to the world.

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte One of my all time favourite flavours is pumpkin. It's nostalgic aroma brings back all those memories of Thanksgivings and Halloweens. Chicks, tell me now, is there anything better than curling up with a good book, magazine or DVD with a pumpkin spice latte? Two-Bite Strawberry Hand Pies This post comes to you from damply beautiful Seattle, Washington! Yes, kids, I am in Seattle for BlogHer Food 2012 and not just as an attendee, but I am speaking! I am nervous, but terribly excited, and ready to get the party started! The last month has been a CRAZY travel month for me. First, I went to Camp Blogaway, then I spent 6 days in Tokyo (expect a few Japanese themed recipes in the future – the place is life changing!), and now I am here in Seattle.
