The real secret is not to use near boiling water as you would making kids jelly, but warm water...... no warmer than about 54 degrees C. Otherwise the alcohol evaporates, defeating the object of the 'game'.
I disagree. As far as I'm concerned "too much voddy" is a contradiction in terms.
Well, the moment of truth has arrived; I'll just go to the fridge and... it hasn't set properly. My fridge reeks of vodka and that horrible antibiotic syrup I used to get as a kid, and a couple of insects have fallen in the not-jelly and drowned.
In Germany used to throw the Vodka into a kettle (leaving the lid off, boil Vodka, then pour into a Pint glass with the Jelly, place in the fridge. SSM's Inpection, saw the jelly, asked why we had jelly in the fridge, said we're all big kids and we like the stuff, he digs in with a spoon and nearly chokes to death it was that strong.
