Lemon Drop Jello Shots

One of the more creative ways to serve alcohol at a party is to add it into gelatin and serve it in small cups - known as Jello Shots.  It's pretty much like making regular Jello except with some alcohol added instead of cold water.

I had made these ages ago for a 4th of July party and forgot all about them!  They just popped into my head yesterday, so here they are!

  • 6 lemons - cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 (3 oz.) package lemon jello
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup cold lemon vodka(optional)
Empty out the citrus to create a vessel.  Juice the citrus first, as it makes for easier pulp removal.  Reserve juice.



Hollow out the citrus by turning them inside out, and take out the pith and the membranes.


Make jello according to recipe above.  Place citrus cups into muffin pan holes.  Pour in Jello and chill overnight.


Be sure to use a sharp, straight edge knife to slice into wedges.

You can do this with any citrus - even hollowed out strawberries!  Use your imagination!
