The first thing you’ll need is a recipe: you can begin by checking out the blog Jelly-shot-test-kitchen, which is a perfect source for finding summery cocktails to serve your friends. Try the The Bramble (Lemon, gin, flavored gelatin, blackberry liqueur), or else the Bushwacker (2 kinds of rum, ice cream, Kahlua liqueur, Bailys, crème de cacao) or a refreshing Mimosa (OJ, champagne, orange flower water).
One thing to remember: gelatine is something that should be enjoyed in small portions, best served on a bed of ice, straight out of the refrigerator.
For step-by-step instructions, invest in the book Jelly Shot Test Kitchen: Jell-ing Classic Cocktails-One Drink at a Time, which reveals all the secrets of this fascinating art.
