Making a shot glass out of ice is a cinch. I actually used two flavors of a Kool-aid-like beverage to make these glasses; blue raspberry and blueberry pomegranate. Not only do they make the ice shot glasses a lovely shade of blue, they taste good too. However, they do leave a bit of residual stickiness on your hands. If you don’t want your hands to get sticky, but you still want color, simply add a bit of food coloring to the water.
Ice Shot Glasses Tutorial
You will need:
water or Kool-aid like beverage (if you go with the Kool-aid, water it down so it doesn’t end up too sticky)
3 oz Dixie cups
1 oz plastic cups or Dixie cups

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Pour beverage into larger cup about 2/3 full.
Place smaller cup inside the cup and push it down until it is about level with the rim of the larger cup. Add a stone to help to weigh it down.
Place a piece of duct tape over the two cups.
Repeat until you have desired number of shot glasses. Place inside freezer for 6-8 hours. (I set the filled cups inside a loaf pan before placing inside the freezer just in case they overflowed.)
Remove from freezer. Fill the small cup with hot tap water, being careful not to let it overflow onto the ice. Let sit for about 30 seconds. Remover inner cup. Run outside of larger cup under warm water until the cup loosens from the ice. Turn over and push gently on the bottom of the cup until the ice pops out. Bring shot glasses outdoors for your winter party and fill with beverage of your choice.
