Getting Lit S1EP11: Grimspace

By Ann Aguire. Special guest host: my sister Katy!


“I’m eating it like a Go-gurt because I’m a damn adult and I can do what I want.”

“…like the meth?”

“I can only imagine him wearing puka shells.”

“Amishland: the worst theme park ever.”

“I’m pretty sure that sympathies towards characters with disabilities is not genetic, but who knows?”


Ilana’s Drink: Nutri-Gel

I decided to make little things of of “Paste” using jello shots but also kind of like the Nutri-Gel as well. The words I said to Matt: “boozy go-gurt”. Adulting real hard. It did not really turn out very pretty but it is pretty tasty. I used devilled egg trays to try and make them look like eggs, but also tried ice cube trays as well. First time making jello shots! I think the little bags make the whole thing much less messy.

Nutri-Gel- Green
Lime Jello
1 tablesoon Pernod Anise Seed Liquor
1/2 cup vodka
1.5 cup water

Red Paste
Watermellon Jello
1/4 cup red wine
1/4 cup rum
1.5 cup water

Blue Paste
Blueberry Jello
1.5 cup water
1/2 cup rum
1 tablespoon pear liquor
1 tablespoon pear wine

For each batch, first boil the cup of water, then add in the jello and stir for two minutes. Add the booze and the rest of the water, pour into mold, refrigerate for four hours.
