How To: Get Drunk Without Drinking

One of our favorite party holidays is just around the corner: Cinco de Mayo! This year we decided to add a twist to the fiesta & we’re proposing the unthinkable: don’t drink! Before you freak and start punching pinatas, hear us out. We came up with 3 fun ways to get drunk without drinking.

Strawberry Margarita Jello Shots

Ingredients:   Large strawberries, 1 box Strawberry Jell-O, tequila, water, salt/sugar, limes

Set Time:        1 night

Cut the bottom of the strawberry so they have a flat base. Use a pairing knife or a melon baller and carve out the middle of the strawberry to make a hole. Boil a cup of water and whisk in the Jell-O mix. Once the Jell-O is all dissolved, pour in your tequila and stir it all together until it is well mixed. Pour the Jell-O into your strawberries & garnish with a thin lime wedge. Set in the refrigerator overnight. When ready to serve, roll the top edges of the strawberries in sugar or salt!

Giant Alcohol-Infused Gummy Bears

Ingredients:   Gummy bears & vodka, rum or whiskey

Set Time:        3 days

Take a standard bag of gummy bears and place them in a container. Pour vodka or clear rum over them until they’re completely submerged, cover with a lid and place in the fridge. After about 3 days, the gummy bears will soak up all the alcohol & are ready to serve. You will never look at gummy bears the same! Warning: don’t them to get to cold, they will turn into liquid. For a sweeter taste, try using whiskey or apple jack.

Alcoholic Fruit Cocktail

Ingredients:   Pre-cut fruit, whipped cream & Everclear, vodka, clear rum or tequila

Set Time:        5 hours

This one is for the pros. Buy some fruit, we recommend watermelon, kiwi, melon, strawberries or pineapples & it’s easier if you buy pre-cut. Drain the juices and place the fruit in a container. Next get some vodka and pour it into the container until the alcohol covers about 1/2 of the fruit in the bowl. Let the vodka and fruit sit in the fridge for about 5 hours. Warning: If you completely cover the fruit you will need to drain before serving because the fruit cannot absorb all of the alcohol. Serve the drained fruit with whipped cream (regular or alcohol infused); you won’t be disappointed, each bite of fruit will be like taking a shot of vodka! If vodka isn’t your thing try Everclear, clear tequila or rum.

Happy Cinco de Mayo from Party safely!
