Root root root for the home team...

Hello Gelophiles,

Okay. Technically that song is for baseball. But it's football season and the demand for shots is rising.  Building off a technique I'm learning called "Embedding" I decided to make some gelatin shots for a friends Northwestern University Alumni party. 

The ingredients were:  

1 3 oz box Grape gelatin
1 envelope knox
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup vodka
1/2 cup  blueberry schnapps 

1 can Sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes Knox
1 cup vodka
1/2 cup  peach scnhapps  

These made 12  2 x 2 inch jello squares.

I can't wait to do more embedding!  And the football season presents endless possibilities. Well, ok it's not like they're infinite possibilities, but a bit of hyperbole goes a long way with gelatin.  Even the word hyperbole sounds gelatinous. Hmmm.... maybe I should make that into a shot.
