A couple of weeks ago, I participated in a Jell-O Mold competition hosted by the Gowanus Studio Space. They asked designers to, "take Jell-O out of the cafeteria and break the mold, as it were, on Jell-O molds." I teamed up with Lauren Tempera from the food department, and we developed Twisted Citrus...three jello flavors that combine to create one perfect cocktail.
Lauren infused vodka with thyme and bay leaf to create the flavor for our jello reamer. We actually used a vintage reamer as our mold. We filled lemon rinds with a sweet & creamy jello pith, and a tart Meyer Lemon jello center. It was looking good for a couple of hours, until it melted in Brooklyn's unforgiving summer heat.
This year, after our piece melted, we learned to use A LOT of gelatin, and bring duplicates of everything. Any other tips or ideas for our project next year?
