Step 2: Mix them up
1- Empty the Jell-O pouch into the big bowl.
2- Add 1 cup of boiling water.
3- Stir vigorously until the powder is completely dissolved.
Note: Step 3 is crucial if you want to avoid the awful skin that you find sometimes at the bottom of your JELL-O... I heard stories about people that actually LIKE this skin.... I think it's gross.... we used to call it "JELL-O placenta"
4- Add 1 cup of ice cold alcohol and mix well again.
Note: The colder your alcohol is, the better the result. I think this has to do with the activation of the gelatin. Personally, when possible, I keep the bottle of alcohol in the freezer for several days before making my shots. Don't believe the skeptics: the bottle won't blow up!!
