Head over to the High Plains Reader where I embarck on my first jello shot-making adventure.

My friend and I had the most success with RumChata cubes and six-layer shots solidified around marachino cherries, as pictured below. 

I learned a lot about crafting jello shots during this crash course. Mulled wine and eggnog are classic holiday beverages for good reason, but why not surprise your guests with fancy jello shots at your next gathering?

I’ll meet you there. . .
