- Sweets and vodka
ive never hear of the dishwasher method so just googled it, still dont know what it brings to the party. we’ve made it before, also sloe vodka, and always just put skittles/sloes into a bottle, filled with vodka and then just left in an airing cupboard for a few weeks, shaking every now and then. muslin cloth for a strainer when ready.
jelly babies we do differently, we dont have those as a drink, we have them as sweets 🙂Posted 9 months ago
put a load of JBs into a shallow container all at one level (none on top of each other). cover with vodka and stick in the fridge the day before a party/BBQ. the vodka soaks into them and makes em into a lovely soggy ‘jelly baby with a kick’. give each person a cocktail stick to spear them for eating.Jujuuk68Member
It’s the heat and shaking you’re after – Presumably if you put the bottle of vodka into say a pan of hot water on the hob, and shook it every few minutes, til it’s evenly distributed – or even stick it in your washing up bowl, or bath, (Well sealed, obvs)will have much the same effect.Posted 9 months agoWillHMember
Haven’t done Jelly Baby vodka for almost 20 years, but we used to empty the bottle into a pan, then chuck in the jelly babies. After a few hours on the lowest heat possible (lid on, and occasional swirling or stirring) they’d be dissolved. Pour back into the bottle and chill it. If your hob won’t go very low, heat for a few minutes at a time and leave the pan on the hot hob between heat applications.
If you can be bothered, use a different pan for each colour of JB. If you are mixing colours, only use the red, orange and yellow Jelly Babies. If you mix in green or black ones you end up with brown vodka 😯Posted 9 months ago
