Life Lessons: Jello Shots

On Saturday night, Tom and I hosted a taco birthday fiesta for some of our friends. As with any social event, this was really just an excuse for us to get together, drink too much alcohol, and get crazy dancing on each other. Nights like this just remind me how much I love my friends! The pictures on this post are the "appropriate" ones... you can imagine how the rest of them look!

In preparation of the evening, I wanted to make Jolly Rancher jello shots, something our friend April made for another party earlier this summer. The recipe calls for sour apple Pucker and watermelon jello. Who knew watermelon jello was a seasonal flavor and no longer in stock? I had to come up with an alternative: watermelon Pucker and strawberry jello.
Because I'm an idiot, I made the jello part first, and then I realized I needed twice as much alcohol as I purchased. But fear not because I'm super creative, and I managed to mix together three cups of leftover Malibu, Raspberry Stoli and Midori to finish the recipe. And the result? Fantastic, if I do say so myself. Although I may have made a few too many - I blame this on my mother who taught me to always worry about not having enough food or enough food for gatherings, which always results in way too many leftover.

So, the moral to this story is that pretty much any alcohol tastes good in a jello shot. And we have lots leftover, so come on over and hang out with us!

  1. I haven't had jello shots since college. Such a shame I know. It looks like you guys had a great night! Nights in with friends are the best.
