It’s summer, which means it’s time to drink. This year, my friends and I have resolved to step it up a notch by getting drunk creatively. This may or may not be an idea that we came up with drunk. At first we considered exclusively drinking Hpnotiq and Cristal so as to appear (unconvincingly) as hip-hop sensations. Soon, though, we realized that doing these things would not bring us fly honeys, nice cars, or endless nights in hot tubs, despite being promised this by music videos. That’s when we found Jelly Shot Test Kitchen, a blog dedicated to re-interpreting classic cocktails as fancy, lovely jelly shooters. A blend of aesthetics, culinary prowess, and general boozery, JSTK has a cocktail for all seasons.
I haven’t actually made any of these yet, but they sure are pretty. Hypothetically (or in a better world where things I make are actually edible), these would be a few of my favorites:
