There are so many food and drinks that are perfect for kids specifically or for adults specifically… but the best kid and adult mixed food is definitely jello shots. It’s not only an easy way to serve alcohol to your guests, it really shows off your creative side. In college, my friends would just make jello shots in Dixie cups, but jello shots can come in all sizes and shapes!
If you have a mix of lemons, limes, and oranges laying around, they can be made into a special game day treat in no time. Although many people tend to stay away from tequila (you know… the one alcohol that makes you regret what you did the night before), Naomi from Bakers Royale thinks these jello shots are all party fun!
Now that I’m older… I should try to enjoy all the “adult” drinks, right? Sometimes, I just can’t wrap my head around the idea of sipping on a drink instead of just downing it! But gin and tonic is a drink that I can slowly enjoy. These gin and tonic jellies by Lindsay on Rosemarried are the perfect twist to a classic drink. Inspired by Mad Men, these jello shots will bring you back to the 1960’s… and possibly even close to Donald Draper! 😉
Cheryl from The Stylist Quo knew what I was talking about – eating jello shots with toothpicks during our wild college days. When you upgrade jello shots to adult flavors and not-the-cheapest alcohol, it’s totally acceptable when you’re older! These champagne jello shots with raspberry candy oil were a big hit for a New Year’s party. Her tips for making jello shots: use 1 cup non-alcoholic liquid + 1 cup alcoholic liquid + 2 packets of gelatin.
The heart shaped jello shots that Michelle from That’s So Michelle made are also made with champagne. Instead of extra vodka, she added Amaretto for more flavor and alcohol. (They’re just so cute!)
Jello shots are a great way to “consume” some alcohol. I mean, I love beer as much as the next guy (or girl), but it’s fun to have alcoholic edibles instead of drinking beer all the time, right?
