Editorial Reviews

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. A saucy addition to any mixologist’s library.Library Journal, May 2011 "In the small subgenre of cocktail books, this guide stands out for its style. Palm’s gift for food styling and her sophisticated treatment of jelly shots makes her blog translate especially well to print. This unique title will appeal to spirits enthusiasts.” Cosmopolitan UK, May 2011 “Forget slushy, slurpy vodka jellies – these shots have style.”Tasting Table  "…more than 60 recipes for boozy bites. Palm leaves the boxes of flavored Jell-O mix and small paper cups to the frat house; instead, she lets the liquor shine through by setting it with unflavored gelatin in a series of dainty molds. The results are gorgeous party-perfect jewels."
