But this year, there’s a somewhat hilarious addition to the cocktail list: “Classy Jell-O Shots.” (Because you know something is bound to be classy when it announces itself as such.) These are not the toxic sludge annihilators of good judgment and sexual morality that you remember from freshman year. (Sorry. Fun times, though, right?)
They’re actually tasty, refreshing concoctions in a trio of flavors: Champagne sangria, spiked violet daiquiri, and watermelon basil vojito - which is just like a mojito, except it's made with vodka and requires an explanation. They're also served in adorable mini martini glasses that we are definitely not going to steal.
So they’re classy, everybody, and you can feel like a refined gentleman or gentlewoman as you dole out $6 per pop, lift your pinky and slug back a few rounds, then doff your duds for a healthy shag back in the hotel room - or in the back of a cab on your way home. (Right-o, chap! And lady-chap!) Jell-O shots have grown up, but not everything has changed since freshman year.
