Step 2: What you have to do
2- Add 1 cup of boiling water.
3- Stir vigourously 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.
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 beleive the skeptics: the bottle won't blow up!!
5- Put the precious mixture in the containers you want to serve the shots in. Sometimes I just leave it in the bowl and then I eat it all at once... I gues you can call this a JELL-O shotgun!!!
6- Put it all in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Here you will have to check once in a while if the jelly has set because the exact time needed depens on the containers you use and the "weather conditions" inside your fridge.
