We have another full-moon raftup this weekend, the Full-Hunter’s Moon. It’s been several months since we rafted up on the lake, the last few have been marina-based “slip-ups.”
I have been wanting to make Jello Shots for some reason. Kind of a fun treat for the lake, if I can just figure out how to get them there in tact. I have been looking around for little 2 ounce plastic cups with lids, and couldn’t find them in grocery stores. A few weeks ago we stopped by a restaurant supply company and found them – in bulk 🙂
So, this morning I googled conventional web-wisdom on jello shots and came up with the following:
1 3-oz package of Jello
8 oz boiling water
2 oz cold water
6 oz rum or vodka or whatever
Pour the Jello powder in the boiling water, stir for a minute or two. Then pour in the cold water & booze and stir. Fill cups and refrigerate til set. 1 package ended up making about 12 of these 2 oz sized cups for me. Note that if you put in more or higher octane alcohol, then you run the risk of them not setting properly. With the mixture I used, the cups set fine in about 4 hours in the fridge.
I popped on the lids, and put in the ice chest for the lake, and they made it just fine.
