Best Blue Jell-O Shot: An Ancient Mystery Solved
Since the dawn of time, mankind has been plagued by two nagging questions. The first is what happens after we die, and the second is how to make an excellently blue Jell-O shot. We can't help you on the first one, but we can finally help you figure out how to make a gummy treat that looks like congealed Smurf blood. Glad we could help.
When it comes to the fine art of Jell-O shot mixology, the highest goal is to create a blend of liquor and flavored gelatin that transcends the sum of its ingredients. We found Jell-O's Berry Blue flavor particularly challenging in this respect. Like most blue-colored foods, it has a flavor not found in nature. The box features images of blueberries and raspberries, but in reality it doesn't taste like either (Jell-O does make a raspberry flavor and it's distinctly different). Instead, Berry Blue is sort of a generic berry flavor with notes of grape and bubble gum and a slightly bitter finish. Not the easiest taste to complement. After a few failed attempts, we couldn't offer any suggestions other than vodka.
