  • ¼ cup boiling water combined with ¼ cup & 3 T sweetened condensed milk
  • 1¼ teaspoons of unflavored gelatin + 2 T cold water
  • 2 T hot water
  • ¼ cup whiskey
  • ¾ cup Dr. Pepper
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin

  2. In one bowl mix sweetened condensed milk with ¼ cup boiling water. In a second bowl, sprinkle 1¼ teaspoons of unflavored gelatin over 2 T cold water. Let stand for a few minutes until gelatin dissolves and then add 2 T boiling water to dissolve the gelatin. Stir to combine well.
  3. Add to the milk mixture to gelatin mixture and stir to combine. Cool to room temperature, but not solidifying just yet. Spray molds with vegetable spray. Use a paper towel to wipe up excess spray.
  4. Spoon gelatin mixture into mold and place on a baking sheet. Place in fridge until totally firm.
  5. Carefully wiggle jello out of mold and press onto the side of a clear plastic shot glass. Sit down on its side in freezer, with gelatin shape sitting on bottom. Continue with the rest of shapes and freeze until hard.
  6. Sprinkle an envelope of unflavored gelatin over ¾ cup of Dr. Pepper in a sauce pan. Once gelatin foams up and absorbs the Dr. Pepper for a few minutes, heat on low to dissolve gelatin.
  7. Remove from heat and cool. Add ¼ cup of very cold whiskey and stir. Once mixture cools, but not yet gelatinized, spoon a little on top of Texas shapes that are now frozen onto cups.
  8. Place back on sides in freezer, but with a piece of wax paper underneath. A little will spill out, but that's okay. Try to cover most of Texas jello shapes.
  9. Allow to freeze for a few minutes, then remove from freezer. Sit cups upright and fill with Dr. Pepper and whiskey jello. Place immediately in refrigerator until set.
