Alright people, Irish or not, it’s about time to get our drink on. St. Patrick’s Day is one of the best excuses to get completely smashed for no reason at all.
While enjoying some of your favorite Irish drinks, Jameson and Guinness, why not spice it up a bit. No one can say no to jello shots, so why start now? Let’s get started…
What you’ll need:
– 16 oz. Guinness
– 3 oz. (1/3 cup) Irish cream
– 3 oz. (1/3 cup) Irish whiskey
– 5 packages of Knox gelatin
– Small cups or a mini muffin tin
– Non-stick spray
– Whipped cream (optional)
8 simple steps:
Spray a paper towel with non-stick spray and wipe the insides of the cups or muffin tin. This will ensure that your jello shots are easy to remove from the cups once solidified.
In a medium sized sauce pan, slowly pour 12 oz. of Guinness. On top of the stout, pour 4 packets of gelatin and let it sit for 2 minutes.
After the 2 minutes, heat the stout/gelatin mixture over low-medium heat and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Remove pan from heat and stir in the remaining 4 oz. of stout to cool the mixture.
Scoop the mixture into your cups. Put them on a tray in the refrigerator to solidify. Wait 5-10 minutes before starting the next step so that you give your first layer enough time to solidify.
In a small sauce pan, pour 3 oz. of Irish cream and 3 oz. of whiskey. Stir to combine. Pour 1 packet of gelatin on top and let it sit for 2 minutes.
Heat the mixture over low-medium heat and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Remove pan from heat and add an ice cube to cool the mixture.
Spoon or pour the mixture into your cups on top of your stout layer. Once the cups are filled, put them back in the refrigerator to solidify.
