I'm single. And being single means Valentine's Day is filled with sugar and alcohol. Sugar and alcohol that I have to buy for myself thank you very much. So if I'm going to spend the day stuffing myself silly with my vices to compensate for the fact that I have no man in my life and am probably going to grow old, alone, with no one beside me but my cats, I might as well make my favorite alcoholic sugary-filled treat and make some of these Valentine's Day pudding shot recipes. OK, so really I just had to make something for...

The first time I made pudding shots it was for my thirtieth birthday party (a party I dubbed "fit for an alcoholic six-year-old"). This was, mind you, in a time before Pinterest made pudding shots popular and all I had to go on was a hatred of jello, a crazy idea, and a prayer that mixing instant pudding with milk and alcohol would result in something somewhat edible. But they turned out more than edible, they were delicious, actually, and so I made them, from then on, every time I threw a birthday party. Last year I turned thirty-six and celebrated...

I realize that this recipe for peppermint mocha pudding shots makes (over) 50 shots of pudding. I also realize that that is an awful lot of pudding. But, hear me out. It was 2am. I was drunk. And I just wanted the damn things to have the actual consistency of pudding. Actually, I just wanted to sit and stare for a while. But I needed to finish the pudding. You see, if there's one thing my department at work is famous for, it's throwing the most kick-ass pot lucks. And if there's one thing I'm famous for at work, it's bringing pudding shots to...

If you ask me to bring food for something, I'll probably bring pudding. And that pudding will probably contain alcohol. And by probably I mean definitely. Just sayin. We're having a St. Patrick's Day pot luck today at work and my co-workers are bringing corned beef or cabbage or soda bread. My contribution is a box full of St. Patrick's Day pudding shots: bright-green mint-flavored alcoholic pudding shots made with crème de menthe, vanilla vodka, vanilla pudding, and cool whip and frozen so they're just like those creamy green Shamrock Shakes we all love this time of year. But more boozy. Obviously. I...

This frozen St. Patrick's Day Pudding Shots recipe is made by combining vanilla pudding, crème de menthe, vanilla vodka, and cool whip. The frozen shots are a perfect alcoholic treat for St. Patty's Day or any day of the year! The green colored shot would also make a sweet addition to a Christmas celebration or serve in summer or spring when the frozen pudding shots would be a cooling dessert for the hot weather.

The taste of butterscotch pudding reminds me of my childhood. While I preferred the chocolate varieties it wasn't unheard of to have a creamy, buttery, bowl of butterscotch now and again. The taste of butterscotch flavored shots, namely, the buttery nipple, reminds me of my college days. Those days before I could quite handle my alcohol (OK, still can't) where any shot I took was masked by a layer of ungodly sweetness. (OK, I still prefer my alcohol masked with sweetness). And butterscotch flavored buttery nipple pudding shots remind me of being an adult. Which I am currently. Because everyone...

You've heard of mudslides, right? Those creamy cocktails you've probably only ever had as a nightcap to a meal at TGIFidays. And, certainly, you've heard of Jello shots? Those slimy frat and/or bachelorette party essentials of slime cubes pumped full of vodka. But, have you heard of pudding shots? They're just like jellow shots but made with Jello pudding instead of Jello jello. And they are delicious. Especially these chocolatey, creamy, mudslide pudding shots. Mudslides are a "trio" cocktail, a cocktail that consists of a spirit, a liqueur, and something creamy, be it cream itself or an Irish cream. Technically, maybe...

Have you ever had RumChata? The creamy, dreamy, sweet, alcohol is liquid perfection. If you ask me. And what's even more perfection? Using the liqueur to make horchata flavored RumChata pudding shots. That recipe is dessert perfection. If you ask me. The first time that I had RumChata rum liqueur I was in a bar in the Wicker Park area of Chicago (read: hipster central). I was with a friend and we noticed a sleek white bottle that we'd never seen before mixed in amongst other potables on the shelf. We asked the bartender what it was and then quickly ordered...
