I like JELLO shots because they can be made ahead of time and travel well when you have to take them to the party. They can be customized to the colors and flavors for whatever occasion you are celebrating. Jello shots are a really fun novelty and they are a cinch to make! Here is how to make whisky sour (or any) jello shots.
