Halloween Jello Shots


Halloween Jello Shots

It is the day before Halloween and I honestly thought that I would not have time to do a post today!  Yeay, here I am....posting!  


These last two weeks have been insane crazy super busy.  


I am kind of surprised that I survived it all.  


First off, my stomach has been in knots with excitement and anxiety for the past few weeks as we've watched our San Francisco Giants go from the Wild Card Game all the way to winning The World Series!  What an emotional roller coaster that was!  As much as I love watching our Giants play, I'm so glad that's all over!



Halloween being on a Friday gives us all that cushion that we haven't had in quite a few years.  


Now we don't have to get the kids to bed at a reasonable hour because of school the next day!  We can all hang out, have friends over and enjoy the holiday.  


In celebration of that I decided to make some Jello Shots.


One of my very best friends is our Jello Shot lady.  She makes the best vodka jello shots ever and we all count on her to make them.  I decided that I wanted to try my hand at it, so I created 3 (yes you all get 3 recipes for the price of one today!) different recipes for Jello Shots.





All preparation is the same as it says on the box.


Pour gelatin package into a medium sized bowl.


Add boiling liquid/s.
Stir for 2 minutes (like it says on the box) until the gelatin is dissolved.


Next add your chilled/cold liquid ingredients and stir. 



Here are my recipes for these 3 jello shots:



Fire Orange Cider

  • 6 ounce package orange flavored gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup boiling apple cider
  • 10 ounces chilled Fireball Whisky
  • 6 ounces cold apple cider
  • 2 ounce plastic containers with lid (you'll need 24-26)

Margarita

  • 6 ounce package lime flavored gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 8 ounces chilled tequila
  • 8 ounces margarita mix
  • 2 ounce plastic containers with lid (you'll need 24-26)

Coconut Grape


  • 6 ounce package grape flavored gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 10 ounces chilled coconut rum
  • 6 ounces cold water
  • 2 ounce plastic containers with lid (you'll need 24-26)





Pour the mixture into 2 ounce containers and seal with lid.  Stack in the fridge for 4 hours or until firm.  I suggest leaving it in the fridge for a day so that all of the flavors are even better.

I hope you all have a Happy Halloween and a wonderful weekend!  We have a very busy weekend ahead of us, so these jello shots will REALLY come in handy!!

Mucky Slide

Mucky Slide

Baileys, Irish Cream Liqueur, Baileys vanilla cinnamon, mud slide, black vodka, kahlua, halloween cocktail


Hi.....remember me?  Has it REALLY been almost 3 (gasp) weeks since my last post?  It has....oh my....I am soo sorry.  I had every intention to post last week.....then our oldest girl got a fever.  Then another week went by and here I am!

I wanted to give you all another fun Halloween cocktail to try.  I (of course) had to use my black vodka in this one....can you tell I'm loving this vodka?  This cocktail has a few delicious ingredients inside which make it an amazing cocktail!  I have to admit......I haven't eaten as much as I should have today so I am a bit tipsy really feeling this cocktail.  I have a couple friends coming over tonight, we will be working on one of their birthday invitations and I will be showing them how to put on Jamberry nails.  Yea......I think that's why I have been not posting recently as well.  I recently became an Independent Consultant for Jamberry Nails and .....Oh Em Gee........I love it!  If you have never tried these nail wraps, please let me know and I WILL send you out a sample to try.  I joined because of how wonderful the company and fellow consultants are.  It's like a family and it is NOT one of those companies where they want your money and give you no support or help what so ever.  (OK I need to stop b/c I can, and will, go on and on and on and on about them).  Instead of my talking your ear off about them, please check out my site, tell me what you think.  Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like me to send you a sample!   Here is a link to my site check it out here. Onto the cocktail.

I think I will be making this cocktail for my friends who are coming over tonight, because I sure know that I want another one!  Here it is, another Cocktail Lady Invention!

Here is the recipe for a Mucky Slide:

  • 1 ounce black vodka
  • 1 ounce vanilla cinnamon Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 1 ounce whipping cream
  • 1 ounce Kahlua
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a martinin glass and enjoy!!

Here is a photo of the final result:
