Grape Limeade Vodka Jell- Shots: Summer themed Jell-O shots are made with Crush Grape flavored gelatin, vodka, and fresh limeade. It will be sure to cool you down those warm summer nights.
For the last 8 years I have had the very cool privilege of having an ice hockey tournament held for my birthday.
They call it Peafest.
Which yes, sounds funny because it is but it incorporates my name and it sounds inappropriate which works for hockey players.
It’s only a half day tournament which is great in that it doesn’t take up your whole weekend.
What isn’t so great is being old and having to skate 4 games in about 8 hours. 😛
After I finish each year I’m fully reminded of how old I am. 😀
Every year I make Jell-O shots.
I did it as a fundraising effort for my Old Dog Haven Walk that we do every year.
The Jell-O shots don’t cost anything but we do ask for donations.
I put some sad cute photos of old pups up and most people are kind and donate.
Since we’ve been doing it so much each year I try and change up the flavors.
We used to have a theme each time but they kind of did away with it but I always do a theme for the Jell-O Shots.
One year we had a Saturday Morning Cartoons of your childhood theme.
I made a Jell-O shot that I called the Grape Ape which was named after The Grape Ape Show.
If you google it now you get a show but it is also now a popular strain of pot.
The flavor was grape Jell-O and limeade….and vodka.
People absolutely LOVED it and from that point on no matter which flavors I made I had to make sure it was included.
BTW-I make 400 shots each year.
And yes, they usually are gone.
These shots are the Grape Apes.
Maybe make a few and maybe you will want to donate to our walk. 🙂
We unfortunately lost our big donor this year so we really are going to have to try and fundraiser harder than ever before.
