Putting the Bloody Mary in Jello-Shots.


When Rachelcakesmakes and I were trying to figure out what to bring to my brother’s tailgate, I figured we’d have to bring at least something that was boozy.  Then I found the two year old giant bottle of Absolute Peppar stashed away in the cupboard.  There is only one thing you can make with that and that’s bloody mary’s.  Put a bunch of college kids into the mix and let’s see if we can turn it into a jello-shot.

So we did a little bit of searching on the internet and found a recipe (who knew?!?).  We tweaked it a little bit.  Took out an ingredient or two, added a little bit of dill, (that little bit makes all the difference).  As a self proclaimed bloody mary “expert”, I prefer mine with a little bit more “bite”.  So we added a lot more worcestershire sauce than what the original recipe called for.

Keep in mind that this is a jello-shot.  So the vodka flavor is VERY strong.  We ended up sprinkling bacon flavored salt on the top to help mask some of that flavor.

Just a word of caution:  If you are NOT a fan of bloody mary’s this recipe is NOT for you!
