To be totally honest with you, I’ve never actually had a jello shot in my life. That being said, I do love me some jello for the sake of how simple it is to make and how low-calorie a homemade version can be, plus I’ve been around long enough to know there is a need for a much prettier (or classier) version of said jello shots.
Technically this edible flower lemon jello shot is just served in miniature shot glass portions, but you can make them with or without the booze and they’re just as cute (and tasty!). Plus I think we could all use a mini dose of Spring right about now…

In case you’ve been saving your holiday styling and DIY energy for an impressive New Year’s bash, this mixed berry punch recipe and brass drink tag DIY will definitely make your guests feel like you thought through every last detail… or at least the bloggers and DIY’ers at heart that are in attendance will (I’ll let the others speak for themselves).
Regardless of who your crowd consists of, everyone loves a refreshing, simple punch recipe that’s easy to grab and go throughout the night, and this Simply Juice Drink mixed berry punch will take you all of five seconds to make which is perfect for early arrivals and quick refills during the party…
The kids all love snowballs, the big kids at heart love snowballs, and now, here’s a snowball that everyone in between can love too (even if there’s no snow to be found): a perfectly wintery snowball float recipe! Let me just say that if you’re a sweets lover, then this has your name all over it. Honestly, how can you say no to a recipe with homemade vanilla soda you made on your own?
I’ve also decided that I’m officially SodaStream’s number one, self proclaimed spokesperson because I’m obsessed. I stopped drinking sodas almost four years ago and I reverted strictly to carbonated water since (coconut sparkling water is my jam!), and this is like heaven just opened up to give me all of the flavored sparkling water in the land… forever. Technically I haven’t run out of CO2 yet, but when that happens I’ll be sure to notify you of my mental breakdown. Until then, I have my machine sitting at the front of my kitchen cabinet so I can make drinks without even having to take it out. Don’t judge me…
