Here's a Moscow Mule Jello Shot Built Into a Lime

Brandon Pool of Innertown Pub in Chicago contributed this recipe as one of the 75 Moscow Mule variations we corralled back in 2016 for the classic cocktail’s 75th anniversary. Easy to make, tasty, and more fun than they have a right to be, these Jiggly Mules are perfect, palm-sized party favors.
