Gettin' Jiggly with It

These boozy, wobbly, grown-up jello shots are kind of awesome

Been a while since you've sported a toga or done a keg stand? That's okay; some youthful traditions are worth upholding. The alcoholic jello shot is one—especially when you make one that's actually delicious (and kind of beautiful).

For our enlightened version, we started with a neon-red New Orleans classic, the Hurricane. A blend of rums, fruit juices and grenadine, it's quintessential tiki, which is to say it doesn't take itself too seriously.

Add some gelatin (not too much; you want a very softly set texture that melts away in your mouth). Now ditch the plastic cups and use the Hurricane's classic garnish, an orange wedge, to hold your wobbly beauty (see the recipe).

The fruit makes for a stunning presentation, and it's the perfect jello delivery system, reminding everyone that these boozy little shooters are serious fun.
