I feel the need to tell you that although my last two posts have centered around alcohol, I don’t even drink all that often…

That said, WHO WANTS JELLO SHOTS?! Muwahahaha!

Ben and I are heading to a 4th of July party tomorrow and I thought it’d be super festive to bring a platter of fruity red and blue shots to share. I can’t even tell you the last time I had a Jello shot, and I’ve certainly never made them, but for some reason I felt utterly compelled to whip up a batch 66 of them.

 MY OTHER RECIPES


If you’ve never made them either, I’ve got good news – they’re ridiculously easy. First, get your supplies together: mini cups with lids, vodka, Jello (4, 3oz packages for 65-70 shooters) and fresh fruit (optional.)

Lay your plastic cups out on a platter like such, leaving some room in between each cup. They may fit now, but the lids extend a little past the cup rim.

I got these mini cups at Walmart by the way.

Oops, they seem to have forgotten to add Jello shots to the list! I’ll write them.

Next, prepare your Jello according to package directions, HOWEVER, instead of the cold water it asks for…

use cold vodka instead! :D

Once the Jello is ready to go, pour the mixture into the cups until they are 3/4 of the way full, then get out your fruit.

I used blueberries in my Berry Blue Jello batch and plopped 3 blueberries into each shot.

Aren’t they the cutest things you’ve ever seen?! I wanted to pinch their little cheeks and put them in my pocket!

Instead I snapped on their lids and stashed them in the fridge. :)

I repeated the process with Strawberry Jello and strawberry pieces,

then made a third, larger batch by combining one box of each flavor for a super-berry treat!

The great thing about these cups is you can stack them on top of each other. That way they don’t take up your entire fridge – which is where they need to stay for at least 4 hours to firm up.
