Now I know people who like to experiment and make fancy flavor concoctions Martha Stewart style but I am partial to plain old jello and vodka. I am rather old fashioned I guess.
|Whenever I am using hot water I like to use a glass measuring cup.|
|I am just partial to metal mixing bowls, love them.|
|I find some flavors of Jello work better than others Cherry and Orange are always good, Lemon not so much.|
|The first steps are actually kind of clear, Jello in bowl add hot water according to package directions.|
|Mix with whisk to dissolve powder.|
|Then comes the vodka (which you are using in place of the cold water), I wouldn't use an overly expensive vodka for this.|
|I only use 3/4 cup, any more and it becomes overpowering.|
|Again whisk to ensure things are thoroughly mixed.|
|Lay your candy cups out on a cookie sheet or tray. (You could use plastic shot glasses sprayed with cooking spray instead but trust me candy cups are so much easier)|
|Use ladle to fill candy cups.|
|When tray is full place into fridge to set. Enjoy!|
P.S. I have tried the Tequila and lime jello Martha style and while it does not taste like the promised Margarita it is not terrible and it is pretty potent.
P.P.S. Many thanks go to Debbie for introducing me to these.
