We've had a lot of heart shaped Valentine's day shots over the last couple of years, but this year we have something even more creative- A SQUARE! Though I'm pro-valentines day, and any occasion that promotes the color combination of pink and red, this jello shot represents the gross ($$$) side the holiday that we can't really relate to. You see, we're being, like, ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife!
This shot is one of our standard flavored-vodka-and-sweetened-condensed-milk recipes*. This is with grape vodka, for no particular reason. The boxes are made with two different pieces, the lids are a little less thick than the bases. The bows are drawn on with white gel food coloring as neat as I can possibly manage (so, not very). The rings are a choking hazard, so make sure you serve these early in the night!
*Super easy: dissolve an envelope of gelatin in 1/4 cup of water, add a 1/4 cup of SCM, any food coloring, and a 1/2 cup of vodka. Do a test run to make sure they come out to YOUR PARTICULAR TASTE (see "this is how we do it" on the right column.
