April 1st.

Ahoy folks. It is currently 11:50pm CST, the first day of BEDA. And I've not written a thing. I'm guessing this year shall be a fail. Ha. It's okay though. I'll still try to post every day if I can. We'll see how that goes.

Today's obviously a short post, due to the inevitable midnight. lol.

I finally, FINALLY tried to make some Jello/jelly shot recipes I'd had on my pinterest board for FOREVER.

These are Pink Lemonade Jello Shots.

10 lemons, *one box watermelon (or any kind of pink color) jello * 1 cup vodka  *1 cup boiling water - 10 lemons makes 40 jello shots - 

1. Prepare lemons by cutting them in halves and hollowing out the peel.

2. Boil one cup of water and add it to jello mix in a large bowl, stirring until it dissolves.

 3. Slowly add one cup of vodka and stir.

 4. Pour mixture into a cup with a spout (for an even pour). I use a ladle. Line up limes on a cookie sheet so they are secure and upright. Pour in jello mixture. Refrigerated 3-6 hours or overnight.

 5. Carefully (gingerly) quarter the halves with a sharp knife.

I used lemon jello and fruit punch jello, plus strawberry lemonade vodka for mine, and it was gooooood.

The bottom are Butterbeer Jelly Shots. Here is the recipe for that one:


1 cup creme soda
2 envelopes plain gelatin
1/3 cup vanilla vodka
2/3 cup butterscotch schnapps
colored large crystal sugar, for garnish, if desired


Pour soda in a medium saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin. Allow to soak for a minute or two.
Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is dissolved (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat.
Stir in the vodka and schnapps.
Pour into standard loaf pan (non-reactive metal or glass, approx. 9 x 5). Refrigerate until fully set (about 3 hours).
To serve, cut into desired shapes.
Immediately before serving, dip in colored crystal sugar, for garnish, if desired.

These are super sweet.

And that's all for today!!
