Gin • Bitter
Negroni Jello Shot

Of all the classic cocktails out there, the Negroni reigns supreme, worshipped by bartenders and drinkers alike as the ultimate tipple. So we figured it was high time for the bittersweet drink to get a solid Jello Shot crafted in its honor. As it turns out, the aperitif makes a surprisingly delicious wiggly nibble. That said, because the drink is so bitter, it did require a bit of tinkering, as well as the addition of some orange juice for a touch of sweetness.
