Praise For Jelly Shot Test Kitchen: Jell-ing Classic Cocktails-One Drink at a Time…
Kirkus Reviews, May 1, 2011
The frat-party favorite is all grown up.
Hot off the blogosphere, Palm (jelly-shot-test-kitchen.blogspot.com) has cooks up great fun in the kitchen with her debut. Part chemistry and part mad science, with a healthy dash of hipster cool, Palm's springy step-by-step guide brings this beloved party shot to lofty new heights. Posing the question asked by famed cocktail website The Art of the Drink, “Is a Jelly Shot a bite or a beverage?,” Palm encourages readers to find out for themselves. She rates each recipe from “Easy” to “Advanced” and offers readers the tools for getting creative with color, layering and shape as they gain confidence. Palm reinterprets classic cocktails such as the Tom Collins, as well as the newly invented Peanut Butter and Jelly Martini, providing jelly-shot options for both high- and low-brow tastes. She even includes a thoughtful section on pairings. Her recipes are well fleshed-out, making it obvious that each has been treated with love and care in their development. Illustrated with full-page photographs so polished and posh even Victoria Beckham would have trouble resisting.
