Did you think your days of Jell-O shots were behind you? Think again.

Bartenders are reinventing the classic party-hearty shot for today’s generation of craft cocktail lovers.

Don Lee from the Golden Cadillac, a ’70s-themed bar in New York City, has suggestions for how to make your Jell-O shot more classy and less college-night-out. The key is using plain gelatin in place of the sugary flavored kind, instead adding flavor through fresh juices like lemon and lime.

Watch the video above for Lee’s recipe for a gelatin shot like you’ve never had it — complete with a dusting of Pop Rocks!
