Sluttishly Boozy: Eyeball Jellies

So tomorrow night is traditionally a night of feasting and drinking (yay!) to celebrate the end of harvest and start of Winter, so let's embrace all of the above and add a bit of ghoulish fun to the mix with these potent jelly shots. These fiendish bad boys will both gross you out a bit AND make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I had intended on just using vanilla vodka for the booze factor in these but it turned out I had already drunk most of it so I raided my homemade damson gin and added that in also. You can use all vodka, all gin, all rum or a mixture of everything depending on your mood, just stick to the basic 300ml spirit (Mwahahaha...see what I did there? I'm all kinds of Halloween pun hilarity) to 100ml water (for a really potent jelly shot) or reduce to 200ml booze - 200ml water combo for something a little less hardcore! I used individual cupcake  silicon moulds for this as it makes popping out the set jellies really easy.

You'll need: (makes 7 cupcake moulds sized jelly shots)
  • 135g pack strawberry jelly cubes (I used Hartley's)
  • 100ml cold water
  • 200ml vanilla vodka
  • 100ml damson gin
  • 50ml lychee syrup (from the can)
  • 7 canned lychees
  • 7 blueberries
Make it!
  1. Firstly make your jelly by dividing your jelly block into cubes and popping them in a bowl with the water. Microwave on full for 1 minute then stir in your alcohol and lychee syrup.
  2. Pour your jelly mix into the moulds so it is 3/4 full.
  3. Put a blueberry into each lychee and carefully place a lychee into each mould, blueberry up. Put them in the fridge to set then when ready carefully slide a knife around the edge and turn out the set jellies.
These babies will be sure to get your festivities going with a swing, in fact I'm pretty sure that my parents must have been a little drunk when they thought that this was indeed an excellent trick or treating outfit for me back in 1985...
Forget Sabrina the Teenage Witch, meet Hazel the Bin Bag Wearing Turnip Holding Witch (yes I'm also holding what appears to be a bag of onions, we really didn't have much money back then).
