A White Russian Jello Shot For Spring Break Is Far From Basic

When I think of Spring Break, I think of jello shots. Although that may be what everyone longs for during a reckless college break party, I refuse to make the cliché jello shot that basics will no doubt, be downing. I decided to combine an American dive bar and Italian coffee bar tradition into one. Ladies and Gentleman, let me introduce the White Russian Jello Shot!
