Alright, alright, alright....I know I am a baker and this is primarily a baking blog, but occasionally a girl has to have a little fun!
Remember last month when I posted my Caribbean Turkey Jerk Sliders? That same, wonderful, group of friends had another themed potluck dinner. This time the theme was "So not paired". We had to bring those crazy recipes that sound like they would never work but are fabulous and drinks that sound strange but are delish. People did not disappoint! There were some crazy recipes....Tuna Cornbread Pizza, Spaghetti Tacos, Brussels Sprout Pizza and I brought my Jimmy Carter Cheese Spread. All sound a little strange and yet, everything was delicious.
Coming up with a strange drink was difficult. I knew someone would bring Chocolate wine, so that was out. I wanted it to be something different and who would think to pair lemon jello and Jack Daniels? Most people wouldn't, but I'm not most people. So I made up some Lynchburg Lemonade Jello Shots! I'm making a bit of a reputation for myself, last month I brought Pina Colada Jello shots. All I can say is this....Jello is NOT just for kids!
I am not a Jack Daniels fan (HELLO...I'm all about the red wine), except for Lynchburg Lemonade. I LOVE Lynchburg Lemonade! To me, you can't even taste the alcohol in these. To everyone else at the potluck....you could. What does this say about me?
Oh well! These are very yummy and tons of fun....just make sure to keep the jello away from the kids!
Hope you enjoy!
