Candy Corn Jell-O Shot....FAIL

Well, it is about that time of year - trick-or-treating, costumes galore, classic candied sweets... oh yes, and most importantly, festive cocktails for all of the Halloween parties. We at Wild Shot got creative and thought to combine several of these aspects of the season by creating the "Wild Candy Corn Jell-O Shot." A couple of atypical ingredients led to an EPIC FAIL (see picture above....).

The coconut milk didn't go over so well... It left us with a split, white layer and a bubbly, opaque yellow-top layer. As a result, the white layer lost most of it's flavor to the top layer, leaving the bottom tasteless and oddly textured. I mean look at that photo! Gross!

Maybe you all will have better luck than we did...... Happy Halloweening!
