Hot Mama's Holiday Shooters

Patriot Shots

Bless Jaid for giving you virtuous treats. But someone's got to be a bad influence so it might as well be me--especially for one of my favorite holidays, Independence Day.
Whoever said alcohol and explosives don’t mix has never enjoyed a Fourth of July celebration at Rancho Hot Mama. A good fireworks display tickles Hot Mama’s patriotic heart—and her Southern states— especially after a few red, white and blue Jell-O shooters. You can make these red white and blue Jell-O shooters in star molds or plastic shot glasses arranged on a tray to resemble a flag.

Red shooter
3oz strawberry Jell-O
6oz water
4 oz tequila
2 oz triple sec

Blue shooter
3 oz regular (not sugar-free)Berry Blue Jell-O
6oz water
6oz vodka (Stoli's got a new blueberry flavored one)

White shooter
3oz regular (not sugar-free) pina colada Jell-O
6oz water
6oz rum

Bring the water to a boil and stir in Jell-O. Remove from heat and stir two minutes, making sure Jell-O is completely dissolved. Stir in liquor. Pour into molds or shot glasses and chill for at least three hours. To remove from mold, set mold in warm water for 15 seconds and then turn upside down over a plate.

I almost went blind doing jello shots when I was in my 20's. I did end up on the floor unable to move my legs... LOL

good times! good times!!

Lol! Sometimes I'm amazed I survived my twenties. And I know I'm glad there weren't camera phones around then ;-)

It's amazing how messed up a little bit of jello (with liquid fun inside!) can get you. I recall doing jello shots once and only once... got sick as a dog b/c all of a sudden it was like POW!! You're out for the count lol

Susan Edwards said...

Okay, I'm limiting it to two shots per person--especially you too, though I don't think Jaid even drinks at all any more. And even if she did, Jell-O is offlimits to vegans.

Susan Edwards said...

Duh, I meant you two, not you too. Sheesh, I'm turning off the computer while I can still spell my name.

Jaid Black said...

Nope, no jello for moi. Although there *is* vegan jello... haven't gone there yet lol
