Pearls of Wisdom~Halloween Cocktail Tutorials!

Happy Thirsty Thursday pearlies!  In honor of this day, and the upcoming Halloween celebrations coming up, we wanted to take some time and share a couple of yummy drink tutorials with you.  Both of which are pretty darn tasty!  The first is a Jello “shot”, modeled after candy corn and gelled into some small champagne glasses, which technically probably makes them at least double shots, but hey…it’s a party right?  The other drink today we actually named “The Witch”, is a spin off of another cocktail called…um…well The Witch with a “B” if ya know what I mean.  lol!  The original recipe calls for cranberry juice, but we decided to add a different flair and go with pomegranate juice…and yum!  We’re glad we did.

So anyhoo, without further adieu… here’s your Halloween Cocktail tuts!  Enjoy!

Pour about a shots worth of jello into your champagne glasses and chill until Jello is set.

Then you will do all the same steps with the other Jello.  Add a shots worth on top of the gelled Jello. and let that set as well.
