Best Tasting Jell-O Shot Recipes
Updated 10/29/09 The Experiment Previously, we investigated the strongest possible Jell-O shotand showed that a Jell-O shot can, in fact, be lit on fire. The reader response to these investigations was overwhelming, we received hundreds of methods and recipes for producing the "best" Jell-O shot. Equipped with this reader input, a minibar’s worth of booze, a grocery cart full of Jell-O, and the spirit of scientific investigation, we embarked on a grueling series of further Jell-O shot trials, and here we present our findings. The Flavor Challenge Previously we focused our efforts on maximizing the alcoholic potency of the shots. In our selection of liquors and recipe combinations, we tried to stick to the basics: liquors and ingredients that were economical and easy to find or likely to be on hand. Start With the Basics Here’s a rundown of some of the best basic Jell-O/liquor combinations that we tried. These shots were prepared by dissolving 3 oz. Our most important finding?

Jello shots (chupitos de gelatina) con forma de sandía Los Jello shots son chupitos de gelatina con alguna bebida alcohólica. Se suelen tomar en vasos pequeñitos, de chupito, pero creo que es bastante más original hacerlo en forma de sandía, ¿verdad?. La idea está sacada de este blog, ¡no me digáis que no son bonitos! Esta vez, además de la receta os dejo el video de cómo los hice. Ingredientes 10 limas 1 sobre de gelatina de sandía o fresa (el sabor que queráis mientras sea roja) 250 ml de agua hirviendo 100 ml de ginebra, vodka o el alcohol que prefirais (tiene que estar muy frío) 150 ml de agua muy fría fideos de chocolate Lavar muy bien las limas y cortarlas por la mitad. Poner a hervir 250 ml de agua y cuando hierva añadir el sobre de gelatina. Una vez retirado del fuego añadir la bebida alcohólica más los 150 ml de agua, todo muy frío. Rellenar con esto las limas y meter en la nevera hasta que cuaje. Cuando estén listas cortar cada mitad a su vez en nuevas mitades y decorar con fideos de chocolate simulando las pepitas de la sandía.

Southern Strawberry Sweet Iced Tea This Southern Strawberry Sweet Iced Tea is a quick and delicious variation of my southern sweet iced tea that is a nice refreshing change from the usual. You can certainly use your own usual tea recipe, or even make adjustments to mine in the strength of the tea, the sweetness, the tartness of the lemon and the level of strawberries to suit your own taste. Make it your own, but I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do. Strawberries are pretty cheap for us down here right now ($1.50 a pound) that I've sure been enjoying them, and even bought some to put up in the freezer. In case ya missed them... I promise I do have some other non-strawberry recipes in the pipeline, it's just that I've been busy outside, enjoying this absolutely gorgeous weather, and getting my veggie gardens cleaned up, refreshed, and planted. If you think this sounds yummy, I'd sure ♥ it if you'd click to pin it, tweet it, stumble it, or share it on Facebook to help spread the word - thanks! ☛ Are you on Facebook?

Limoncello Recipe Limoncello While searching for a good recipe for Limoncello, I found a lot of conflicting information. Some recipes use vodka, others use grain alcohol (without specifying the potency, which varies) and others even used rum! The alcohol-to-water-to-sugar ratios also varied widely, and it made me wonder if people had typos in the recipes, or were just posting a recipe they had never even tasted! So I started with the premise that grain alcohol will extract the most lemon oil and flavor from lemon zest. Limoncello 3 pounds lemons, preferably organic. 16 oz. grain alcohol, 190 proof (I use Everclear) Wash the lemons thoroughly in warm water, and rinse well. On the 3rd day: 4 cups sugar 4 cups (=32 oz.) water 1/2 cup (=4 oz.) lemon juice Combine the sugar and water in a non-reactive saucepan (i.e., stainless steel, or a pan lined with enamel - not aluminum or cast iron). Clemencello My latest discovery!

How to Make Jello Shots (with pictures) These are very strong Jello shots, with 3/4 oz. (22 ml) or 1-1/2 oz. (45 ml) of vodka in each shot, respectively. Eat them responsibly. 1Start with a 3-ounce (85 g) package of Jello. Lime and orange flavors are ideal, as they will taste similar to vodka-based mixed drinks. Cherry may leave your Jello with a flavor reminiscent of cough syrup. Berry blue and grape are not recommended either. 2Mix the powder with 1/2 cup of boiling water. 5Pour the mixture into cups. Watermelons: Nature's Keg | Ministry of Alcohol 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.

Web’s Best: Whiskey Drinks Unlike The Most Interesting Man in the World, we almost always drink beer. When we don’t, however, our go to liquor is whiskey. What can we say, bourbon is neat (little whiskey humor). While we usually just pour a few fingers and relax, sometimes we like to get a tad more creative. Hot Blooded Besides sounding like the most badass fruit, blood oranges are freakin’ delicious! PDT’s Bacon Old Fashioned If PDT isn’t a cab ride away from where you live, we highly recommend making their Bacon Old Fashioned in the comfort of your own home. Double Chocolate Bourbon Egg Cream If we’d been around for the Brooklyn egg cream craze, we’d have added a little topping from our flask at the corner pop shop as well.

You basically just mix all the ingredients together, but the best way to do this is by mixing the frozen pink lemonade concentrate with the vodka first. Note: If you want the lemonade to be extra sweet, add a fifth can of concentrate to the mix. Then pour in all the beer. The main point in using Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) is not because it's cheap, (although that is always a good thing in my book!) Toss some ice in a glass and drink responsibly!
