Shake it Up: Jell-O Shots Get A Makeover

June 1, 2011

When you hear the term "Jell-O shot", what comes to mind? Maybe college parties, sickeningly sweet alcoholic concoctions that more closely resemble cough syrup than a cocktail, all served up in paper Dixie cups? No more! There's nothing wrong with using unflavored gelatin (or vegan substitutes like agar agar) to create semi-solid, slurp-able versions of classic cocktails.
