I truly have the best job in the world. Tablespoon asked me to create a collection of Jello Shot Recipes, and I was thrilled to oblige. I really had a lot of fun creating these recipes. I thought about what I like to drink, and what flavor combinations that I enjoy, and I got to create jello shots out of them. Once I figured out the formula, I realized that I could make any combination that I wanted to. Truly, the possibilities are endless.
One of the things that I discovered when developing these recipes was that they were very easy to dress up. Gone are the days when jello shots are just for college students. These will be gracing my summer parties this year, and I feel that they will be well received. Add sanding sugars, toasted coconut, and even whipped cream just make them that much more fun. I also loved the idea of using citrus rinds as the container for the jello shot. They are gorgeous to look at as well as drink. Drink? Eat? Slurp? I am not sure the correct noun to use, I just know that these are all about fun.
The day after I made them, I needed to photograph them, and make sure that they were delicious. If some of these shots are a little blurry, well, I apologize. They were in fact delicious. And maybe just a little potent. Even though they look benign, these pack a punch. It does equal out to about a shot per jello shot. Proceed with caution.
