🔪 How to Make Ghost Shots
Making these shots is a fairly simple procedure. The only “difficult” part is removing them from their molds, and even that is easy once you do one or two.
Step 1: Make the Green Apple Gelatin
Whisk the gelatin and 1 cup of boiling water together in a liquid measuring cup with a spout.
Step 2: Add the Vodka
Whisk in 1/2 cup of vodka.
Step 3: Chill in the Molds
Lightly spray the ghost molds with nonstick spray and pour in the shot mixture.
Step 4: Chill
Chill in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 hours until set.
Step 5: Remove the Shots from the Mold
Gently pull the sides away from the bottom of the molds. Then, flip the mold and gently squeeze the back of the mold until the ghosts pop out. Work gently.
Step 6: Make a Face
Use a tiny paintbrush and black food coloring to paint on the eyes and mouth if you like. Enjoy!
