Jello Shots Today...Pudding Shots Tomorrow

Jello ShotsWe've never been big fans of Jell-o shots. The goopy consistency and nagging feeling that the vodka has been diluted has always led us to keep our Jell-o and our shots separate. A new experiment by some real drinking go-getters out there might make us change our tune, and it looks like they've figured out how to maximize the booze-per-shot, but we still have a problem with any shot you have to chew...

Ultimately we determined that the breaking point of a Jell-O shot – the point at which the gelatin began to lose its structural integrity (i.e., ability to gel and hold its shape) is somewhere between 19 and 20 oz. of vodka per 3 oz. package of Jell-O powder. That’s at least 14 oz. (1 2/3 cups) more than the 5 oz. of vodka in the original Jell-O shot recipe. The Jell-O shots we made with 19 oz. of vodka (lime) held their shape nicely when unmolded, whereas the shots made with 20 oz. (grape) began to slide apart, and the shots made with 21 oz. (orange) quickly disintegrated. The batch containing 19 oz. of liquor was 76% vodka by volume, and 30% pure alcohol by volume, very close to taking a straight shot of vodka.
All we really want is for someone to figure out how to create pudding shots, preferably chocolate. In fact, we're putting out a bounty on the idea. Make us pudding shots and we'll make you rich beyond your wildest dreams.*

We discovered these Jello shot idiot savants via two sources; The Sporting Life and our good friend Craig. Or, you can go right to the horse's mouth at My Science Project.

* As long as your wildest dreams don't involve you actually getting any money.

Update: We actually found our own pudding shot recipe. We thank you for your support.

In referrence to the article "Jello Shots Today...Pudding Shots Tomorrow"; I wanted to note that one needs to merely add a packet of unflavored gelatin to make Jello shots with a higher alcohol content. Try one pack of flavored Jello and the correct amount of hot water (according to the recipe) and replace all of the cold water with grain alcohol. If you add the single pack of unflavored, it will congeal nicely and have the alcohol equivelent of a 'real' shot.

Whip cream - fold in box of pudding. Once blended you can whip together. Add liquor.

Yes, I know how to make pudding shots. Just substitute 1 out of the 2 cups of milk called for with Bailley's Irish Cream. Whip with as much Cool Whip as you desire. Yum!
