We might not be proud of it, but many of us have been intoxicated at least once or twice at the hand of Jell-O shots. And normally these nights did not end well, which may be why there's a steady decrease of these jiggly shots in our lives as our age keeps increasing.

But Jell-O shots don't have to mean cheap vodka, red Jell-O, plastic disposable cups and a test of wit in how to get the shot into your mouth. (Though the challenge of getting the shot out of the cup can be avoided with the use of the Twist 'n Shot cup.) Jell-O shots can actually be really tasty, and pretty too.

We found many impressive examples online, and one blogger in particular -- Jelly Shot Test Kitchen --really produced show stopping examples. Click through the slideshow to see what you can make with a little bit of liquor and a package of Jell-O -- and give them another try.
