Beverage Inspiration From Home

By: Julia Prendergast

Why not turn your kitchen into a restaurant and become your own bartender?! Here are some meal-inspired drinks for you to test out at home:


1. JELLO Bloody Mary

Start your morning off right with a bloody mary, JELLO style. All you need is celery, tomato juice, gelatin, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, tabasco, vodka, and a fridge.

2. The Irish Breakfast Shot

If you’re not a gelatin person, the Irish Breakfast shot might be more up your alley. Just grab your bacon, Irish whiskey, butterscotch schnapps, and orange juice, and you’re set!


1. Skittles Daiquiri

The Skittles daiquiri and popsicle sangria are perfect for pretending you’re having patio drinks with the girls.

2. Popsicle Sangria


1. Jalapeno Pepper Shot Glasses

When you’ve got an unlimited amount of time on your hands, you better get creative! Did you know jalapeño peppers can make the perfect shot glass?
