Local blogger creates viral dino drink to celebrate release of Jurassic World: Dominion

ROCKWALL, TX (June 22, 2022) Looking for the perfect drink for a Jurassic Park-themed party? Local food and party blogger Katie-Rose Watson, creator of The Rose Table (therosetable.com), came up with this fun dino drink for her Jurassic Park party, which was the most successful Rose Table party release in history with over half a million views on the content in just one week. Named after one of the most iconic lines in the film and inspired by the green Jello that jiggles on Lex’s spoon when she spots a raptor in the dining room, the Clever Girl will thrill any Jurassic Park fan!

The drink involves flaked Jello and sparkling white grape juice. For a grown-up version, make the Jello using vodka. You can get all of the recipes from Watson’s Jurassic Park party and read more about the party (including how Watson projected dinosaurs on her window!) on the Entertaining section of therosetable.com.
