What Every Good Tailgate Needs…

If you’re lucky enough, you will be going to a tailgate at a football game sometime soon.  It’s poor manners to arrive at a tailgate empty-handed so you’re probably wondering what you should bring.  Most tailgates that you attend will have lots of food, alcohol & the basic necessities.  One thing that there will never be enough of is jello shots!  If you show up with a bunch of those little cups full of alcoholic deliciousness, your arrival will be celebrated.  They are easy enough to make plus they are a great way to show your team spirit.  You will want to make sure you prepare them the night before, though or else they will never be ready in time.  If you’ve never made them before, here is a quick & easy recipe…

What you will need:

2 (or more) packets of Jello in your favorite team colors…Dixie Cups…Vodka…Water…a cooler…& if you’re feeling really ambitious, some whipped cream (but this is not necessary but can be some added fun.)

How to make them:

Here’s the obvious 1: look at the instructions on the side of the Jello box.  Mix the amount of hot water that it says to add to the mix depending on how many packets you’re using.  Then use your judgment, if you want strong shots, instead of the cold water, add all vodka.  Add as much or as little as you want, but I think if you ask most people, the stronger the better.  Pour the mix into your cups & put them in the fridge overnight.  Make taking them out of the fridge the last thing you do before you leave so that way they can stay cold longer.  The last step is to enjoy your tailgate!
