Candy Shot Glasses

Completely edible shot glasses. I’ll leave the possibilities to your imagination.

Mix 1 Cup of sugar, 1/2 Cup of light corn syrup, and 1/4 cup of water in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar. Once the sugar is dissolved, toss in a candy thermometer. Without stirring, bring sugar concoction to about 295 degrees F. It’s very important to get it within just a few degrees.

Take sugar off heat, add flavorings and food coloring of your choice, and immediately pour into greased shot glass molds. Let cool

THIS WILL BE VERY HOT. If you get this sticky stuff on ye, yer’ll burn down to yer bones. Wear protection. Always.

Here are some flavorings that I like:

Orange: orange extract, orange food coloring; great with vodka, tequila, anything fruit

Lemon:  lemon extract, yellow food coloring; make the perfect lemon drop: lick sugar off yer hand, throw back lemon vodka from a lemon shot glass, then bite a lemon.

Blue Hawaiian: coconut and banana extracts, blue food coloring: Shoot Malibu, then chase with a piece of pineapple

Peppermint: peppermint extract, red food coloring; great receptacle for the Peppermint Patty recipe.

Peppermint Patties

Peppermint Patties done right. Drink for dessert and liquid confidence. Plus, freshens yer breath after all that bacon.

 In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour a few ounces of Rumple Minze Peppermint Schnapps (100 proof, don’t waste yer time with the other ones)

Add a bit o’ Bailey’s Original. About half the shaker should be filled at this point, with more schnapps than Bailey’s.

Squeeze in some chocolate.

Fill the rest of the shaker with vodka. Shake. Serve.

Terrific in a flask.
