Bloody Skull Drink Cubes and A Giveaway!

Add a fun touch to your Halloween beverages!

This will turn out more of the consistency of a "jello shot" than an ice cube but adds an interesting look to a drink and does it does bleed out a bit to make the drink more of a red color.  The "cube" can be munch on when the drink is finished.

Items used:
1 Skull Ice Cube Tray
1 tsp from 1 small box (4 oz) red gelatin
1/2 cup boiling water
Ginger ale, 7 Up or Sparkling Water
1 TBSP vodka (optional)

The amount of jello you use depends on how many cubes you will be making.  For this skull tray I used with 8 cubes is used 1 TBSP from 1 small bottom of red gelatin as it held 1/2 cup of fluid. If you have a different tray to figure out how much liquid to use pour in water in 1/4 cup increments until it is full and adjust recipe accordingly.

Heat up 1/2 cup water to boiling in a microwave or pan and pour in the bowl and mix.  If you are using any vodka, add at this point.

Pour the mixture in the skull (or other) ice cube tray.   You might want to put down a tray or plate underneath for any possible spills for easy cleanup.

Freeze for a few hours. 

Put the cubes in the glass.  I didn't use any vodka my cubes as I don't keep it in my house and I wanted my teen son to be able to enjoy the creepiness too.

Pour beverage over ice cubes and serve.
