Gourmet Jello Shots For The Woman You Love

Our friend, Judd Hall, in Seattle is into Jello Shots - Gourmet Jello Shots. These used to be those silly little drinks that college kids drank...but now they are making a comeback with all sorts of folks - and seem to be a particular favorite of some women we know. Its kinda fun so I thought I would share this information with you.

Here's an excerpt from an article from Judd's website:

Jello Shooters Renaissance

As a result, there is a resurgence in the popularity of Jello Shooters – particularly gourmet Jello Shooters with exotic and involved recipes – at higher end parties, even weddings and 50th wedding anniversaries.

With the flexibility of flavors and combinations, you can theme Jello Shooters to your party. For example, if you are having a Summer Luau, why not Caribbean Blue, Mai Tai, Key Lime Pie, and Daquiri Jello Shooters?

For weddings, try Coconut Rum Jello Shooters, Wedding Cake Jello Shooters, and Strawberry Cheesecake Jello Shooters.

For Cinco de Mayo, try Tequila Jello Shooters, Margarita Jello Shooters, and Tequila Sunrise Jello Shooters, and how about putting a gummy worm in the bottom of the Margarita or Tequila ones? The gummy worm takes up a little more volume of the Jello Shooter – reducing the total amount of alcohol per serving, and slows down consumption, while also getting you 1-2 extra Jello Shooters per batch.

For dinner parties, a particular favorite of mine are Red Wine Jello Shooters for dinner parties, made with 3-4 different red wines in my region. I like to intersperse them with Red Hot Cinnamon Jello Shooters to cleanse the palate."

So maybe you would like to try making a few for your wife...I bet you'd make her happy!
