Family share bottle of cola – £1.25
Lemonade – 99p
Vege Gel – £2.50
Four adults deciding at 10.30 at night to make a Colossus Cola bottle –
Picture the scene….its Bank Holiday Sunday, a meal has ensued and several hours of drinking and frivolity has resulted in a mention of Pimp That Snack. Four friends are on a mission…
After much discussion the consensus is to pimp a cola bottle. This has been discussed in many forums, cogitated over and considered, but now is the time to prove the doubters wrong, a giant cola bottle can be made – oh yes, we’ve worked out how!
We have moved from melting together a thousand cola bottles, creating a mould from cardboard, wood (yes wood!) and then finally the family share cola bottle.
A late night trip to the open all hours off license and a rummage around the pantry to discover vege gel and we are all set…
First step – work our quantities – 125 cl liquid to two packet of vege gel, poured said amount of coke into pan and added vege gel
Brought mixture to boil, then allow to cool for 10 mins… the essential taste test is made, and yes it tastes SWWWWEEEEET…then pour into mould, after cutting screw top section of empty plastic bottle off first to allow for easy pouring. (Warning – ideally this should not be done by the bloke who has had the most to drink!)
Let the cola jelly set in fridge for an hour or so – sit back, relax and just enough time to type up the event of the year.
Once set repeat with lemonade, 350ml to one sachet vege gel and repeat process, pouring lemonade mixture into mould on top of cola (once cooled).
Leave to set over night in the fridge
Next morning the person with the smallest hangover again wields the Stanley knife and carefully cuts the bottle mould in half (dodgy flowery tray not essential) but keep the bottle mould held together and run a sharp knife in between the two halfs to split the jelly.
Gently lay one half on some tin foil
Et voila the Colossus Cola Bottle is born
