100 Days of Happy: Day #70/ St. Patrick's Day Jello Shots

Day #70: I baked the German chocolate mini cupcakes for Tuesday's cultural fest. So excited! This is only half -- I made 48 mini cupcakes.

Last night I made Jello shots for St. Patrick's Day tomorrow night. I decided to try a little bit of it tonight to see how it tasted. I'm glad I only put a 1/2 cup of liquor because it's strong. I couldn't imagine how strong it would be if I put the full cup! Here's the recipe.

St. Patrick's Day Jello Shots

1 package of Melon Fusion or Lime Jello
1 cup of boiling water
1/2 cup Jameson
1/2 cup cold water


  1. Happy Nowrūz next week!

    I heard alcohol bakes out of cooking.

    1. Yeah, when you bake it. I added the alcohol to the jello shots to cool down the jello, so it's VERY strong, haha.

    2. My, my! Considering alcohol...
      I am suspicious my Russian mathematician buddy will inebriate and have his way with me next time, um, again, but he is aware I am cautious of his motives; in fact, he seemed glad I checked his background against a mutual friend. (He clearly got Ben to vouch for his character quality - truthfully, I am closer to Ben in the continuum of Russian/mathematics scholars, but he is in North Carolina right now, a bit of a hike.)
      This is my conclusion.

      Enjoy our cultural heritage today, Jessica! I got dragged to dozens of heritage museums in China. *clearly Chinese, can't you tell?*

    3. Eh, I usually don't drink that much. In fact, tonight I'll stay sober as I have stuff to work on for the German table tomorrow night. :D

      Thank you, you too!

    1. I'm excited for the diversity night. My dad;s cousin said I should open up a business -- since I love culture, it should be a food, writing and education business teaching people about the cultures. I might consider that once I move.

  3. Sounds good, although I'd make them without the alcohol, even though they probably wouldn't be shots anymore! :D

    1. Haha, if I made them again, I think I'd do 1/4 cup of Jameson and then the rest Sprite instead of water. Of course the water component would be the boiling water. Mom said Jello shots are usually done with vodka instead of whiskey (probably less stronger), but I wanted to keep the St. Patrick's theme. :p

  4. I'm happy to see you doing the 100 happy days thing. Those cupcakes look amazing and I'm a big fan of jello shots for parties. I've never had them with whiskey though. Sounds good.

    1. It's REALLY strong with whiskey, haha. Then again I usually don't drink a lot and I've lost weight, so it might be strong for me. I think the next time I make them with whiskey, probably put less.

      I love doing the 100 Days. :) I can't believe there's only 29 days left for me, but I've noticed a big difference. Maybe I'll continue on my blog only.
