Grown Up Jell-o Shots

August, 2011 · By Coryanne Ettiene

Not all Jello Shots are created equal, some, like the ones from our youth are tainted with the foolishness of college parties, and others, like a glamourous version of the Jello Jiggler can add a touch of  playfulness to your next cocktail party.  You can turn any cocktail into a Jello Jiggler, all you need is a little creativity and (gasp) a night to sample your favourites before you place them on your serving tray.

The trick with making a Cocktail Jiggler is knowing how strong you want them to be, the recipes below are for the bold and daring hostess, should you wish to serve a lighter version, simply replace the liquor with water or a mixer of your choice.
