“Submission” shooters, anyone?
I love my boss. How many bosses call you up on a Saturday night and say, “We’re having a drinking game. What kind of drink do you want?
I kind of babbled a moment (or five), since this isn’t the kind of question I’m used to getting from most of my previous bosses. She asked me the title of my book, and I said “Submission.” Fifteen seconds later, she IM’s me the recipe:
Submission Cocktail Recipe (Category: Shots)
Use a “In glass” for Submission drink recipe
Dissolve lime jello in a cup of boiling water. Add another cup (or more to taste) of tequila (for special occasions add slices of lime) and mix well. Chill for 2 hours in a freezer or 4 hours in a fridge. Serve in shot glasses
– 1 packet lime jello
– 1 cup hot water
– 1 cup tequila
The last thing my last boss offered me was an inferiority complex by asking me to search Craigslist for her for a new person to clean her house… at $5 more per hour than she was paying me for my 20 years of marketing and business experience.
Turns out this Submission shooter is made from my favorite flavor jello, and my favorite going-out booze. The woman is a mindreader. But I began to wonder. The “Submission” shooter may share the name of my upcoming release, but how historical is it?
Well, it may not be an authentic Regency drink. But check out this recipe from How to Mix Drinks, or The Bon Vivant’s Companion by Jerry Thomas, dated1862:
