We generally use cheap Vodka, but you can use other liquors - but beware because some don't taste so good together. Like raspberry jello and tequilla? Lime with coconut rum? Eww. Tequilla is really good in the blue jello.
Basically, you do 1/2 and 1/2. So if it is a 6oz package of jello you would follow the basic directions like this:
Boil 2 cups of water (we microwave it)
Completely disolve the jello in it
Stir in 2 cups of cold vodka
Then pour it into something to set. We use the 2oz size plastic cups from GFS. Refrigerate until set. Since we make so many, we do 4 cups water, 2 large (or 4 small) jellos, 4 cups vodka at a time.
Being winter in Ohio (um, it's 19 degrees out) we just stack them in coolers in the garage with the lid open and it's cold enough for them to set.
How do you eat them? Well, you're not supposed to top them with whip cream and use a spoon. Some say if you use anything other than your tongue it's cheating.
I'm off for a play date with Mini J!
Putting a seal on it - An American tourist tells me that a US Navy Seal is not an animal with flippers that makes unpleasant barking noises. Apparently, the Seals are daredevil...
