The Twelve Days of Halloween: Day 4

On the fourth day of Halloween, my true love gave to me:
Four gummi worms,
3 Musketeers,
Two deviled eggs,
And a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Coffee

For those of you who have not yet indulged in the world of Halloween novelty drinks, now is the time. After four Creepy Crawly Jello Shots, I am a convert. What other holiday combines Jello shooters and gummi worms, I ask you? None.

Creepy Crawly Jello Shots
recipe for an unconscionably huge batch from DrinkoftheWeek.com

2 Cups Vodka
3 Cups Water
3 Packages Jello
Gummi Worms

In a sauce pan, bring the water to a boil. Once boiling add in the Jello and stir until it is completely dissolved, then stir 2 more minutes. Add in the vodka and stir. Pour mixture into clear plastic shot glasses and chill. Before they get firm, add a gummy worm to each glass. Then let them firm up.

I made some awesome Jello shots. Here is the recipe.

Name: L.S.E. (Lime, Stoli, Energy)

1-Large package Lime Jello
1 1/4-Cups of Raspberry Stoli
4-2oz bottles of 5 Hour Energy
2-Cups of water

Make the Jello with 2 cups of boiling water. Mix in the 5 Hour Energy and Raspberry Stoli. Put in plastic Shot cups and let sit overnight in the refrigerator. Great flavor with an energy boost.
