Jell-O can get kind of a bad rap — the texture is not ideal, and the abnormally-sweet taste leaves something to be desired. But a Jell-O shot that glows in the dark? That's something we can get behind. When placed under a blacklight, the quinine in the tonic water causes these shots to glow. Make them for your next party and let people wonder if you're a wizard.
