Lemon Drop Jello Shots Recipe
- 4 Large Lemons
- 1 Cup of Vodka or Citrus Vodka
- 3/4 Cup of Boiling Water
- 3 oz Lemon Flavored Jell-O® Gelatin
- 2 Tbsp. of Sugar (to coat lemon wedges)
Prepare the Lemon Peels
Slice the lemons lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out the pulp all the way to the pith without breaking the rind. Place all the lemon peels on a muffin pan to keep them upright.
Note: If you don't have a muffin pan, use 2 oz plastic cups instead.
Make Lemon Drop Jello
Squeeze the juice out of the pulp of the lemons with a lemon squeezer until you get 2 ounces of lemon juice.
Boil the 3/4 cup of water. Place the gelatin mix in a bowl and add the boiling water. Stir well until the gelatin dissolves completely. Add the cup of vodka and lemon juice.
Refrigerate the Lemon Drop Jello Shots
Fill the lemon halves all the way to the top with the lemon drop gelatin. Place the muffin pan in the refrigerator. Refrigerate for at least four hours or until firm.
Note: I used 2 oz plastic cups to hold the lemon halves upright in the refrigerator.
Make Wedges and Sugar Coat Them
Remove the lemon halves from the refrigerator. Using a sharp knife, slice the lemon halves into wedges.
On a small plate, pour 2 tablespoons of sugar. Dip both sides of the lemon wedges into the sugar to coat them.
