In about ten minutes, you will own the secrets of JELL-O shot making !

A JELL-O shot is possibly the most entertaining of all drinks and despite what some may suggest, it is awfully simple to make.

Note for those of you who are not familiar with JELL-O shots:

A JELL-O shots is a portion of JELL-O which contains a very high level of alcohol. Swallowing chuks of this JELL-O is an entertaining way of ingesting a generous amount of alcohol without the pain of tasting it.

Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
1- INGREDIENTS:

a) 1 box of JELL-O powder
b) 1 cup of boiling water
c) 1 cup of ice cold alcohol (the colder, the better)
Note: For the demonstration, I used plain 40% alcohol, but it works just as fine with vodka or rum.

2- TOOLS:

a) A big bowl
b) Any kind of container you want to serve your shots in. (I recommend plastic shooters or plactic cups).
c) A measuring cup that can measure at least 1 cup.

Great recipe:) The reason for the super cold alcohol is because the boiling water you add (100c 212f) is greater than that of alcohol (78c 173f) and would evaporate all of the good stuff:) Thank you for the great recipe!

Isopropyl alcohol is a poison, so I very much doubt that it is in tesco's own brand vodka.

Frankly, I don't know for sure... but the "half 'n' half" version I make is plenty for me and my friends... hihihi

Thought you guys might be interested in this. It's an article about how the Jell-o shot was invented by Tom Lehrer, a musical satirist. The story goes, he was in the US Army from 1955-1957 and invented Jell-o vodka to circumvent an army policy against alcoholic beverages.

do you like have to dig them out of the shot glass when you eat it, or do they come out and you eat it as a jelly thing?

If you spray your shot glasses (preferably the plastic variety) with a little bit of cooking oil spray they slide out really easily, and providing you don't use virgin olive oil there is no unwanted flavour either :)

Most of the time, i do it in standard freezer ice tray and scoop them out effrotlessly... Also, i will often just have it in a large bowl and pass spoons around... Lots and lots of fun!!!

I tried the version of jello shots and found them to be a bit runny. they were very stiff and i tried to make them in an egg shaped jello mold but they just sloshed all over the place. any idea on how to make them more of a "jiggler" consistency?
