Gelatin mix is a favorite convenience pantry
staple in our house. We use it to make quick desserts, including parfaits, trifles, and fruit salads.
Whip gelatin mix in sugar cookie dough, frosting, and icing for extra flavor and
color. Make frosted grapes, meringue cookies, fruit-flavored roll-ups, and
marshmallows with it, too!

hour before preparing shots. Traditionally, vodka is used, as it has the most
neutral flavor. However, we prefer to use one of the

Oranges, 99 Peaches, 99 Watermelon ); these boast a high proof
