Jello Shots

Nothing says 3rd of July like a big party and some cool, refreshing spiked jello in a teeny plastic cup (if you are from Pawtucket, you know what I mean). These are great for a large crowd, if you want to share.The quality of what spirit you use will definitely make a difference, but even the cheapest of plastic bottle vodkas will do. Here are some of my favorite combos:

McLean 3rd of July 2009

Tropical, Pineapple, or Strawberry Banana w/ Coconut Rum
Grape, Cranberry, Watermelon, Fruit Punch w/ Vodka
Cherry, Orange w/ Vanilla Vodka
Black Cherry w/ Chocolate Liqueur (like Creme de Cacao, Godiva, Etc)
Berry Blue or Blue Raspberry w/ Raspberry Vodka

Mix jello with 1 cup boiling water. Stir 1-2 minutes until fully dissolved and add 1 cup cold spirit. Stir another minute. Pour into 1 oz disposable cups and chill 4 hours to set. 1 regular size packet of jello makes about 18-20 shots.

Whats your favorite combo??
