Is it even possible to have a party without jello (Jell-O) shots? These colorful “drinks” are very popular and an absolute must at every college party. These gelatinized cocktails are so simple and sweet tasting but they tend to be very strong.
Jello shots have been around for quite some time. Believe it or not, it is considered that jello shots originated somewhere in the latter half of the 1800s. The original Jell-O shot is actually believed to be the work of Jerry Thomas who wrote a book on how to mix drinks back in 1862. Of course, there are records of gelatinized wines and champagnes that go way back before Jerry Thomas wrote a book about it, but his recipe included spirits instead of wins and champagne. His recipe included rum, cognac, and lemonade. These gelatinized alcoholic desserts are now present at every party to brighten up the atmosphere with their colors and well, with their essential ingredient-alcohol.
A fun fact about jello shots is that they’re neither liquid nor solid. They are actually both. Jello shots are made thanks to gelatin which is derived from collagen, a flexible protein. If heated with water, we get gelatin which is used for creating desserts. With jello shots, it’s quite easy to get tipsy as they taste sweet and you won’t feel like you’ve actually had too much. That is why when making jello shots, you should pay attention to how much vodka, tequila or any other spirit are you using.
