Jell-O Shots: The Book

Jiggelo Jello Shot RecipesApparently, the Canadians have discovered Jell-O shots. Or, at least, Canadian grownups - we're sure the industrious college students of the Great White North have been slurping them down with the same voracity as kids in the US. The following article from the Toronto Star gives some overall info and drinking (eating?) tips for Jell-O shots, plus talks about an interesting-looking book of gelatin shot recipes called Jiggelo.

The shot comes to mind in September, as college students flock back to school and attempt to put the higher in education. Jell-O shots are portable and spill-proof, and coddle those who are uncomfortable with the taste of alcohol — the equivalent of those fruity, mixed drinks that marketers describe as "entry-level." No wonder they have become synonymous with wild campus parties. Their popularity, however, is slowly expanding to friendly grownup get-togethers, camping excursions and holiday events with colour themes, such as Halloween or St. Patrick's Day.

The author made his recipes from a book called Jiggelo: Inventive Gelatin Shots for Creative Imbibers (available at Amazon), which contains over 50 Jell-O shot recipes. Included ingredients are "chocolate, peanut butter, chopped nuts, Tabasco sauce, Twinkies and cooking spray all make appearances, as does practically every kind of hard liquor one can imagine." Sounds like a must-have for any back-to-school package.
