Every vegetarian, vegan, and kosher college student has gone to an awesome party only to face the evil jello shot. You get to explain why gelatin isn’t in your diet while everyone judges you, and then you get to be sober since they used all the liquor for their culinary experiment.

Well, I finally found the most delicious vegan gelatin that can be used to make perfect vegan jello shots. It comes in a bunch of flavors, so it can replace gelatin in most jello shots recipes.

For you meat-eaters, you are free to make this recipe with regular gelatin packets. Fortunately, you might need to boil an additional 2 ounces of Gin and Tonic in the recipe. Don’t worry, we won’t judge.
