I interrupt your regularly scheduled “tomato overload” program to bring you the latest Hurricane Irene survival information… There’s a Hurricane hitting the East Coast! I know that people are stocked up on their water, bread and milk and eggs and generators and flashlights – and that they also stocked up on the booze so they could make it through the storm! Take some of that booze and make a Hurricane right in your own house.
I present you with Hurricane Irene Jiggler Shots… may these be the only things to wiggle/jiggle/sway in your life during this storm!
Hurricane Jiggler Shots
as adapted from my favorite: Jelly Shot Test Kitchen – get it!
- 1/2 cup passion fruit nectar (or mango/guava/etc)
- 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/2 cup grenadine
- 1/3 cup lime juice
- 2 1/2 packages (2 packages plus 1 teaspoon) Knox Gelatin
- 1/2 cup white rum
- 1/2 cup dark rum
Put all the non-alcoholic liquids into a small saucepan & sprinkle your Knox on top – allowing it to soak for a minute or two. Then turn your heat on very low and stir constantly for about 5 minutes until gelatin is fully disolved.
Remove from heat & pour in your two kinds of rum. Pour the entire mixture into either a loaf pan or a 9×9 square pan (as long as its flat – you are pretty much ok with anything). Allow to set for at least 3 hours (or even overnight) and cut as soon as possible to serving as possible (I often just cut a few at a time when serving, and even if I cut them all – leave them in the ‘fridge to stay cool). This should make about 18-24 Hurricane Irene Survival Jiggler Shots!

And I leave you with this, today’s Question of the Day… What has the worst storm been that you have ever lived through & what ‘survival items’ did you need?
