Phenomenal! I made about 10 of the jello shots in this book, 8 boozey and 2 non-boozey. The directions are easy to understand and the pictures are amazing. I cannot function with a cook book without pictures.

I haven't tried any of the special effects (gradients, checkerboard, etc.) beyond basic layering, so I'm not sure how easy those directions are but overall- great addition for anyone looking for fun ideas for parties.

Our favorite college party treat is updated with sophistication. Every picture in this splendid little book is lovely, and every recipe is surprisingly simple. Could you ever imagine popping an "Old Fashioned" jello shot into your mouth? Or a "Margarita?" How about a "Black Russian?" Mmmm...these little naughty treats not only look delicious, but look fantastic.

Love this book! Recipes use knox jello rather than boxed jello, and sometimes you have to make your own syrups. The author includes some substitues if you can't make the syrups yourself. I have had great success with most of the recipes, and they really do taste like the true drinks. The Whiskey Sour was especially popular with the men, and the Mojito and Margarita were excellent. I made Hurricane shots for the New Orleans football game, and I think they were authentic - however, no one in our g ...more

Completely amusing guide to making really impressive Jello shots. My G&T shots turned out great. This is right up there with the gourmet popsicle books and Cake Pops for impressing your friends at parties. Perhaps better, because it involves alcohol.

Just ordered this gem, can't wait to make some fun stuff for the holidays!

Five stars because this is the only source of this much detail on beautiful and tasty jelly shots not to be confused with jello shots which is what you had in college and don't require an actual recipe. These can require quite a bit of work and last minute attention to detail or there are simpler recipes as well as recipes without alcohol. While you can invest in many molds for shapes, the shots can also be just made square or in silicon ice cube trays. The well-written, well-tested recipes incl ...more

It's hard to rate cookbooks, particularly specialty ones. However I have renewed this book to the limits of the library and finally ordered a copy for myself. It's just so ridiculous. But if you want yummy, grown up jello shots, this is the book. I do wish there was an index by ingredient, so you could say, what do I do with the vanilla vodka I for some reason have, but otherwise, it gives techniques for making they pretty. (And they're good. I've now made four recipes - one was from the blog, w ...more

Quick and easy, and definitely inspirational for possible dishes for picnics or events.

This is a beautiful book. It was the hallelujah chorus to my visual soul.

Alas, I did not try any of the recipes. I must admit I subscribe to the drink philosophy of "if you can't name what's in the drink in the name of the drink, don't drink the drink."

Though, I do think this would be a great theme for a girls night in ... hmm ... perhaps a Xmas party idea.

Pick it up for something to tease your taste buds & eyes.

The recipes in this book looked amazing, but unfortunately they didn't taste very good when made with agar. Someone who eats gelatin should make them and tell me how they are.

This book really makes me want to have a 'jell-o' shot party. Loved all the recipes and the little details.
