  • I'm having a halloween party too, and here is what I plan to do for drinks.

    I am going to make some sort of alcoholic punch (undecided what yet) but only because i'm going to get a clean rubber glove, fill with water and probably some food colouring, then tightly do up with an elastic band. Pop into freezer, then before guests arrive I will take out of freezer, take off the glove, and put the frozen hand into the punch!!

    (Is it sad, that the whole idea of offering punch is because I want to do a ice hand? hmmm...!)
  • I have done this to great effect!

    We used WKD blue and fresh orange juice then red colouring in the 'hand' - worked a treat :)

    ......if it does go tits up, and isnt as firm as you would like, you could always add jelly sweets into the bowl.

    *goes off to tell OH we need a bowl* :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    Sorry. :o Bit bored today. :D

  • I made rum jelly shots for a house party recently, using this method:

    Only use 75% of the liquid it states on the jelly packet as otherwise it doesn't set properly. Split this amount into three - one third boiling water, one third cold water, one third vodka. Put the boiling water into the jelly cubes and stir until dissolved. Mix the vodka with the cold water, then pour this into the hot jelly mixture, this stops all the alcohol from evaporating when it hits the boiling water. Split the mixture up into shot glasses, and refrigerate overnight. :)

    I wish I'd dipped them in boiling water before serving to loosen though, they needed a bit of prodding around before they'd loosen from the glasses, then they came out with a bit of a schloop noise :rotfl: They also taste deceptively un-alcoholic

    We just found this old thread on vodka jelly.

    Is anyone making it for Christmas or New Year?

    How do you make yours?
