Gelatina Mosaico (Broken Glass Jello)
Gelatina de Mosaico is a gelatin dessert that is popular in Mexico and Brazil. It is sometimes called broken or stained glass gelatin due to its appearance. This dessert is sold at fairs, markets, plazas, and food carts. It can even be found in upscale restaurants. It is popular amongst individuals of all ages, but particularly children because of its colorful, attractive appearance. It can be served at special occasions, and is often found at birthday parties for children. It is a relatively simple and inexpensive dessert to prepare. Substituting Vodka for some of the water, it can even be made into adult beverages.
