Your Next Backyard Barbecue Needs Beer Gelatin Shots

By

Many of us love an ice-cold beer on a hot summer day. A few of your favorite cans or bottles can play a vital supporting role at a cookout (the star, of course, is still whatever you throw on the grill). But if you want to get a little more creative and nudge your beer into the spotlight, we’ve got a killer way to do it — gelatin-ify it.

These personal-sized treats come standard with collegiate nostalgia. But really, they’re much cooler than their neon-colored cousins — not only can you make them with your favorite beer, but we’ve topped them off with a homemade tequila-lime whipped cream for an elevated final flourish. Can’t you just picture them looking all cute, lined up on your buffet?

And when all the shots are gone, we’ve got lots more ways for you to win summer this year: Bake a pull-apart beach cupcakes, grill cheese (literally) or whip up no-churn sweet corn ice cream.
