Recently, I have been on a Jello Shot making kick. I have been invited to a few girl get togethers and they said bring something fun. So I thought what is more fun than a jello shot? Okay there really are tons of things much more fun than jello shots but they really are up there on the Fun-O-Meter. I'm not sure what is more fun - making them or slurping them down. It's amazing the combinations that you can come up with on a whim. Let's take this last Saturday. We had a Wenches board meeting and I made Magarita Jello Shots and then Lemon Drop Shots after an oh-so-nice Clea ran to the store and got lemon jello for me. Okay next meeting the Jello Lemon Drops are nixed. Not a hit! The Margaritas were good (I have made them before) and of course everything got slurped...but then we got creative with the Strawberry Rum (Clea brought the rum to make Hungry Girl Daiquiri) and some Strawberry Jello - sugar free of course! Holy crush, the Strawberry Rum Daiquiri Jello Shots were Y-U-M-M-Y! We made two batches and lessened the water on the second batch for a more potent shot. Again, they were YUMMY! There is a whole science out there on making Jello Shots. Google it and you come up with so many options it's amazing...and fun! From true science projects to divinely gorgeous creations. It can become an addiction pretty darn quick, and I am there! The other Wenches have no idea what I am brewing up for the next board meeting. Of course I will be armed with the Strawberry Daiquiri ones but I have to have something else up my sleeve.
