Please sir, can I have some more? Kinky pudding shots that is

Did you even know there was such a thing as Jell-O Strawberry Creme Instant Pudding*? I am not so sure even Jell-O is aware it exists because it’s not listed under products on their own website. Was this mysterious strawberry creme instant pudding an urban legend like the old don’t flash your headlights at a car without its lights on as it’s a gang initiation and you will be shot and killed instantly? After trying three different grocery stores with no luck I was just about to Snopes this elusive product when I decided to give old Amazon a try, and lo and behold, not only did they have it, but they also had a book I wanted (The Last Weekend) that also did not seem to exist in a store, total amaze-balls! Being Amazon, they also bewitched me with the offer of two-day day shipping if I signed up for Amazon Prime (sigh, again) and since I wanted that pudding BAD I fell for their cunning scheme hook, line and Jell-O pudding sinker. Even though the last time I tried Prime free for thirty days to catch up on all the episodes of Bunheads I missed I had to PAY for half of them. Not cool Amazon Prime, not cool.

Oh Amazon, I wish I could quit you

For those of you who unfortunate enough to not be on a first name basis with Kinky, it is a “naughty fusion of super premium vodka distilled five times with succulent mango, blood orange liqueur and passion fruit” that once you taste it will make all your problem ago away. Pouf, just like that, at least until the bottle runs out. It’s kind of a small bottle so depending on how many problems you have, you might want to double up.

So very pretty, it's like the Christy Turlington of booze

One package of Jell-O Strawberry Creme Instant Pudding–and good luck finding it in a store but if you do, I want to know where it is

8 oz. container of Cool Whip–this took me almost as much time as the pudding to find because I normally find my dairy products in the dairy section and whatever toxins this stuff is made up of have to be kept FROZEN

3/4 cup Kinky, of course

Whipped cream to top–real stuff, well, in a can, but found in the DAIRY section

Some sprinkles, to make it pretty. I used pink to match

Shot glasses with lids–mine were 2.5 oz and holy crap they are not cheap, or I am when it comes to plastic shot glasses, seriously, ten dollars??

Ten dollars for these? I guess because they are imported from France. Apparently mousse shots, or creme brûlée shots are big over there and yes I made that up

Gelatin glasses imported from France. Apparently mousse shots, or creme brûlée shots are big over there

Mix the Kinky and the pudding mix until blended, add in the Cool Whip a little bit at a time until incorporated, you know like Hobby Lobby. I put this mixture into a pitcher and poured it into the shot glasses, spooning it in was far too messy and tedious. I was not blessed with the patience gene.

Chill in freezer for a couple of hours, makes about 18-20, depending on how much sampling goes on. Not that I did that or anything.

My little Kinkylings, before they go into the chiller

Just like the margarita poptails, I made a few of these Kinky-free, figuring some children I know (who just happen to live in my neighborhood) might like them. I am not 100% sure if it is a good idea to get them familiar with the idea of Jell-O shots but what the heck, one of them will be off to college in three years and their parents weren’t around. I am also not sure if Shaun Ryder and the rest of the Happy Mondays would be into Kinky, but since their known for being notorious consumers of copious amounts of both drugs and alcohol (see 24 Hour Party People, no, really you should, it is a great movie with even better music) I am going to say yes.

 

* thank God I had to order four of these boxes from Amazon because let me tell you, Jell-O Strawberry Creme Instant Pudding is insanely good and I don’t even like pudding. Now I know why there are so many Pinterest boards dedicated to it. It also supposedly comes in Peach Creme, which might be almost too much for me to even contemplate right now.
