The fourth of July is right around the corner.. are you ready to surprise your guests? WITH WHAT? With some new recipes to get the party started of course.

This book is amazing. I love how organized it is. It’s separated by alcohol. You can just flip to the part of the book that has whatever alcohol you have on hand, or want to drink that day/night.
It saves so much time by separating it like this, because you aren’t having to flip through each page and read the ingredients- they are already right there for you!

This book isn’t just going to be great for the Fourth of July, but for all year round. Any kind of party; birthdays, anniversaries, house parties… If you’re looking for an amazing variety of jello shots, this book is it! There are over 300 recipes for Jello shots and they are all different!

I love that this book also contains conversation starters, trivia, and truth/dare questions to get the ball rolling and party started. This book is filled with these. Almost every single page has something like this on it!

Dare: Drink something from the belly button of a random player.
Truth: If you were invisible, what is the first thing you would do?
NOW.. onto the shots!

I am in awe at the very beginning of the book. It’s what every shot seeker needs. It begins with the liquid measurement conversion. This way if you would like to make a bigger amount than is called for in the recipe, you know how to do this without messing stuff up!

The shots are categorized by what type of liquor inside the recipe. The recipes are very easy to follow, They are simple, short, and right to the point. They are detailed even though they are short.. Open-mouthed smile

On each page there are 3 different recipes, and they are all separated by those little jello shots you see in the picture. The recipes have a great variety of Jello shots.

From simple recipes (Puppy Love) to the more detailed (Long Island Ice Tea Jello Shot). They are all made using standard Jello mixes in various flavors. This book is awesome for a quick jello shot mix!
The names of these jello shots are just so funny, unique, and eye-catching. You’ll have people requesting more and more—just to try them out for themselves.

I love that you can just make whatever jello shot by what alcohol you have on hand. You don’t have to go out and by anything “special” for them. Even if you have to buy any of the ingredients, they aren’t expensive and can be found at your local grocery store!

This would also be a great book to have on hand for girls’ night in, bachelorette parties, and just random get togethers. You’ll have to make the shots in advance, but OH what fun you’ll have! Open-mouthed smile

Some sample recipes out of the book:

Daydream:
3 oz. pkg Pineapple Jello
1 c. boiling water
1/2. c cold water
1/2 Amaretto

Mix Gelatin with hot water until dissolved (approx. 2 minutes). Add cold water, stir. Let sit until steam dissipates (no more than 3 minutes). Add alcohol, stir thoroughly (1-2 minutes). Pour mixture into your chosen Jello Shot containers. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Makes 8-10 2 oz. Jello Shots

Bermuda Triangle:
3 oz. pkg Orange Jello
1 c. boiling water
1/2 c. cold water
1/4 cup Spiced Rum
1/4 c. Peach Schnapps

Mix Gelatin with hot water until dissolved (approx. 2 minutes). Add cold water, stir. Let sit until steam dissipates (no more than 3 minutes). Add alcohol, stir thoroughly (1-2 minutes). Pour mixture into your chosen Jello Shot containers. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Makes 8-10 2 oz. Jello Shots

The instructions at the bottom- mixing and such are all the same. The only thing that differs in the book is the alcohol that you put in it and how many shots that they make. The more stuff that it includes, the more shots it produces. Some of the recipes produce 18-20 shots.

Have you ever tried a Jello shot? What was it? Did you like it? Would you like to see other NEW Jello shot inventions, like in this book?
