Step 2: Mix them up

Picture of 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!!

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!
