One of my favorite things is an amazing and unique cocktail hour. Anyone can serve champagne or mixed drinks for an hour, but I love to shake it up a bit! These little "Jelly Shots" are the perfect addition! They're yummy, eye-catching and will definitely stand out to your guests. I always say a great event is all in the small details, and this is a perfect example of that!
Now, don't assume these are your typical sorority house jell-o shots....these little guys are fancy! You can work with your caterer, venue or wedding planner to create these for your wedding. Or, if your event is at a venue that allows you to bring in your own liquor, this would be a great DIY project for DIY brides! We've shown some great examples below from the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen blog. Check them out for even more great jelly shot ideas!
