How to Make Caffeinated Jell-O Shots

caffeinated-jello-shots.jpg

We've given love to all kinds of Jell-O shots here, in our quest for the best-tasting Jell-O shots ever to have been created. Now, we've found some folks who have taken things to a whole new level by introducing caffeine powder to the mix, to give you that extra little boost. Sounds like a great idea, and we can't wait for the coming Jell-O shot escalation. Maybe, before too long, we'll be able to enjoy Jell-O shots containing other drugs, like crystal meth. Here's hoping!*

Learn how to make the caffeinated variety at Instructables

* Before you yell at us, we don't really want anyone to make them with crystal meth.

Super Bowl Tequila Punch

super-bowl-xlii.jpgIf you, our cherished readers, think the way we do, there are two things you think of when you think of Superbowl Sunday - tequila and hibiscus flowers. That's right, these things have finally come together in the form of Tequila Touchdown Punch, a recipe we just received from the fine folks at Don Julio tequila. OK, so maybe those three things don't really go together - at least not yet - but we did find out that the hibiscus grows well in Arizona, the location of Super Bowl XLII, so there's the connection.

The recipe sounds really tasty if you can get your hands on the flowers in time for the Bowl. If not, you'll have the fixings for an extreme garden party come spring. See the full recipe below.

Holiday Rum Punch Recipe

rum-punch.jpgWhen most people think 'punch,' they think 'fruit,' 'Hawaiian,' or '...and Judy.' Even if they think of an alcoholic punch, they probably think of another drink that's just been spiked. This doesn't have to be the case, though. In fact, punch can be a combination of festive, boozy, and tasty that can take your holiday party to the next level. We've found a great example of a delicious punch recipe over at Esquire, and we recommend you blow your friends away by making it for your holiday party.

LookBetterNaked Margarita Recipe

partida-tequila.jpgThe nether region between Thanksgiving and Christmas isn't when we're usually looking for a margarita recipe, but the email we just received made a pretty good point - come the first of the year, we're going to have to shed a few pounds. Not that we think sitting around sipping tequila is going to do this for us, but the recipe in the email does seem like it'd help take a stab at enabling us to burn off some pork. We'll let the folks from Partida explain, since they do so better than we could:

Ingredients include Partida Reposado tequila, organic acai, organic agave nectar, rosemary, egg white and fresh squeezed lime juice. Since the ingredients are all natural, the LookBetterNaked margarita is a healthy alternative to other drinks. Using Sambozan Pure Organic Acai and Partida Organic Agave Nectar fills the margarita with antioxidants, amino acids, dietary fiber, iron, calcium, cholesterol-reducing fructans and Vitamins A and C. The rosemary is rich in vitamin E, preventing cancer and skin damage. An egg white provides a full source of protein, while the fresh lime juice
prevents heart disease and gives an extra dose of Vitamin C. The LookBetterNaked margarita is this year's guilty pleasure to help you lose the weight!
We're not quite sure we're buying it, but we're sure as hell willing to try...hope we don't have to make any tequila confessions. Read on for the full recipe.

Holiday Party Drink Recipes from Marie Claire

Yes, you're right...if there are two things that go hand in hand, they're Liquor Snob and Marie Claire. It's like chocolate and peanut butter...like Laurel and Hardy. OK, maybe not, but we do like the list of cocktails they put together. A lot of them seem to contain champagne, but don't hold that against them...so does Death in the Afternoon. Thanks, Marie Claire - we'll think of you when we're sipping a hot buttered rum.

Another Halloween Cocktail: Fox Poison

fox-poison.jpgWe've done a bit more digging for Halloween Cocktail recipes, and we've found another one that intrigues the hell out of us. It's called Fox Poison, and it contains both absinthe and milk. Just think how green and cloudy it'll get, and how much fun it'll be to poison your brain. Note: if you can't get real absinthe, give Absente or something like that a try.

Fox Poison

3 cl chartreuse
3 cl absinthe
1 cl green curacao
milk

Build in highball glass. Stir and fill up with ice cold milk.

Halloween Cocktail Recipe: The Zombie

One too many Zombie CocktailsHappy Halloween from your friends at Liquor Snob. We've been scouring the Web to find a great drink recipe to celebrate the day, and we think we've got a winner - the Zombie. It's got a tropical zing, plus it makes us think of the greatest Romantic Comedy with Zombies (RomComZom) ever made - Shaun of the Dead.

Oh, and they mess you up pretty good because they have three kinds of liquor in them. Whether they give you a taste for human brains remains to be seen. Find the Zombie recipe we discovered after the jump.

The Churchill Martini

As we gently lurch our way into the weekend, we thought it might be nice to offer you a drink recipe to try out as you relax from your work week. We're starting off with one that's as easy to make as it is potent - the Churchill Martini. Now, we have to say we take some issue with the idea of making any martini without vermouth in it - drinking straight gin is what drunks do. Wait, what're we saying? Sign us up!

To make a Churchill Martini, add 3 oz of dry gin to a shaker of ice. Shake and pour into a martini glass. Some recipes call for a twist of lemon as a garnish. Others call for an olive. I prefer to use a habanero-stuffed olive, marinated in Reisling as the garnish, but that's my personal twist on the Churchill Martini.
via Helium; we also rounded up some solid martini advice a while ago to help you on your quest to make the perfect one.
