HISTORY HAS BEEN MADE! The Nom has its very first video tutorial completed. Yes, it’s a little ugly and rough around the edges, but so am I. This also means there’s room for improvement…and this is just the beginning. Many more to come and each one will be better than the last!
To kick off this momentous moment, we whipped up a batch of my famous “Evil Genius” cocktail and included a seriously solid slug of Virus Vodka to give it an impressive kick.
While the video gives you a pretty good rundown of the process, let me get you the list of ingredients you need for this foul concoction!
To make your own Evil Genius (complete with edible green gelatin tentacles) you will need:
- Two vitamin B2 tablets, crushed
- 3 cups lemon lime soda – divided
- 1 1/2 cups Virus Vodka – divided
- 1/2 cup orange Curacao
- 2 scoops lime sherbet
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 4 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
- 1 box lime gelatin
- 1 teaspoon instant vanilla pudding mix
You will also need:
- Tentacle Mold*
The Devil is in the Details: Speaking of tentacles, here’s a pro-tip. To make sure your tentacles are strong enough to stand up to some serious time in your drinks, make them 24 hours ahead of time and allow them to “cure” in the fridge. The added time will help dry the surface out a bit, making them last longer in your drink when it’s time to serve.
And for some fun behind the scenes shots, here are what the tentacles look like on their own:
All plated up and ready to go.
Under the blacklight, the B2 vitamins give your tentacles an eerie green glow!
