Just The Tip: Jello Shots 101

Hey, hey, hey. It’s #JustTheTip day, you sexy beasts! Can I get a hallelujah?

Today’s episode is very near and dear to my heart, as I’m teaching you the sacred art of preparing one of my all-time favorite delicacies…


I’m not talking about the kollege version here, people. (We’re all far too sophisticated for Everclear and cherry Jell-O jigglers. Duh.) In this tutorial, I’m sharing the simple, foolproof formula that will allow you to make all manner of fancy grown-up shots. I went with a simple margarita version for demonstration purposes, but feel free to experiment with your go-to cocktail flavors. The sky’s the limit when it comes to your shot creativity, but if you need a little inspiration, I recommend starting your experiments with: Cranberry-Vodka (with a spritz of lime), Moscow Mule, Rum and Coke, Tequila Sunrise, Mimosa/Bellini, Elderflower-Gin, or good old Hard Lemonade.

A tray or 10 of jello shots is guaranteed to spice up your weekend/parties/life, so please watch and learn. And make good choices. (Bahahaha.)

p.s. I know I just poo-pooed Everclear, but am I the only one that kind misses it? Anyone interested in a Jungle Juice Just The Tip?

    Yes, I would love an Everclear tutorial. I have half a bottle left over from making apple pie shots for a Halloween party four years ago. I haven’t touched it since but somehow don’t have the heart to throw it away.
