With Fourth of July festivities around the corner, we recommend you give a little extra thought to that all-important drink menu. Think fun, cold and party-ready. Think jello shots. No, we’re not joking, but we’re certainly not suggesting you recreate the sickening, vodka concoctions of your college days either.

The following jello shots are a bit more grown up and genuinely delicious. They have creative flavors and presentations, but of course, still scream “party!” As all drinks on the Forth should.
