College Night!

Another fun Friday night party - this time the theme was college night. Everyone wore garb from the alma mater, favorite college 'games' were played, and the menu - well see below. It was so much fun to see the elder crowd learning how to play flippy cup - i mean, when you learned how to play drinking games could you play with people in their 50's or 60's? 

Papa John's pizza
bologna sandwiches
Cosmo Jello Bites/Jello Shots
Sugar cereal "snack mix"

Cosmo Jello Bites
4 packages raspberry jello
1 1/2 cups boiling cranberry juice
1/2 cup pom (or more cranberry)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup vodka

Adjust liquid proportions to taste (if you want them stronger - decrease the juice)
Cut into triangles and stick in a popsicle stick for the 'martini' look. 
These were really tasty! I didn't have enough room on the plate to make them all into martini glasses, so i just stacked the extras in the middle. These are just like jigglers - and easier to eat than a jello shot.

The Cosmo Jello bites look great but my attention keeps going to the cereal snack dish. I'm a sugar-cereal fiend!!
