Negroni Jello Shots

by James Stevenson

To help step up the party this weekend I decided to make Negroni jello shots. These jello shots are your key to a one bite Negroni cocktail. After sampling some of these let me tell you they are addicting and you will not stop at one. I doubled the recipe because I know my friends and myself and 20 of these will last a couple of minutes with my crowd.

This is my second time making classy jello shots and I really like serving them at a parties. Mind you these are not the college frat party shots they are an elevated version made from a lovely classical cocktail. Jello shots add a fun element to parties because many people wouldn’t expect them. This is great because jello shots really set a party mode and there is nothing like seeing everyone enjoying themselves over a couple of jello shots. Make your weekend a party with these classy and elevated Negroni jello shots!
