Just got back from Ptown where we had a stormy, but fun time. While I was there I whipped up a batch of crowd pleasing Pineapple and Malibu rum jello shots. I fortified the shots with some regular bacardi as Malibu is only 21% alcohol. And what a serendipitous meeting did these shots lead to.
While having drinks at the Boatslip, I started a conversation(surprise) with two good looking guys with funny tee-shirts. After mentioning to them that I make jello shots, one of the guys tells me he loves, loves, loves them. Then, the other, mentions that he used to be a jello shot boy at a strip club years ago. Hello! How fun is that! But there's more.
We invited them back to the house and the tasting began. They really loved the shots. Then it came to pass, as having several of my jello hosts can do to loosen the tongue, that one guy now does adult films. Gelology has hit a new height in celebrity-ism. What a great day for gelology PR!
So the next day I came up with a new recipe for the boys. Here are the yet to be named shots.
1 3oz box of raspberry jello
1 envelope knox unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup perrier sparkling water
3/4 cup smirnoff raspberry vodka
1/4 cup peach schnapps
Pour a little of the OJ in a pan and sprinkled the knox over the OJ. Boil the remaining orange juice in a glass in the microwave for 3 minutes. Pour the OJ into the pan and dissolv the knox. Then stir in the jello powder. To further dissolvem put the pot on a low flame and stir for a minute. Remove from flame and then cool by adding the perrier. When cooled to room temp, pour in alcohol and stir for a minute. Pout into a container and refrigerate. Ready to eat in an hour and a half.
The color of these shots was amazing. A deep ruby red. The boys came over and loved them. After some brainstorming on how to combine the porn industry and jello shots, the yet to be named adult film actor (YTBNAFA) came up with the idea of jello jizzlers. Love the name. I'll leave the rest to the imagination.
So a pretty sucessful couple of days in Ptown if I say so myself.
