Lemon Drop Jello Shots

These Lemon Drop Jello Shots were a huge success at our football tailgate this weekend.  Everyone was so surprised at the presentation and how great they tasted.  So, as promised here's the info for how to make these fun little treats.


Lemon Drop Jello Shots
- 8 large lemons
- 2 packages lemon Jello (3 oz each)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 cup citrus vodka
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup ice cold water

Cut the lemons in half lengthwise. Squeeze the lemon juice out into a separate container and set aside.  Use a spoon to scoop out all of the insides and pulp.  You can use a paring knife to help separate the inside, but be sure not to cut through the lemon peel.  Once you have them all completely juiced and cleaned out, place each of the halves into a muffin tin, with the open sides up.

Prepare the Jello mixture by mixing 1 cup of boiling water with two packages of lemon Jello.  Stir until the Jello has completely disolved.  Then, add the 1 cup citrus vodka, 1/2 cup of strained lemon juice that you got from the lemons, and 1/2 cup ice water.  Stir until cooled.

Pour the Jello mixture into each lemon half so that they are completely full.  Carefully move the muffin tin to the fridge and chill for at least 4 hours, until hardened.

Once the Jello is firm, and you're ready to serve, cut each half into three slices.  Turn the lemon halves over on a cutting board and then make each slice in one fluid motion using a very sharp, warm, non-serrated knife.  Share with friends and enjoy!!

This recipe can also be modified to use with any other citrus fruit like oranges or limes.

  1. Those are so fun! I love that they are in the lemon "shell" or rind--and look like lemons!

  6. Just finished making these awesome treats! They are still firming up in the fridge and I can't wait to try them tonight! I also made limes. Limes were not as easy as the lemons were when removing the pulp. The rind is much thinner as well so you have to be extra careful. These are going to be amazing!

  7. Thanks for the great idea! I experimented with a small batch of these. I found them to be just a tad tart so I sprinkled them with a bit of sugar to get more of a "Lemonheads" type taste. Next time I'm going to try using strawberry jello to get "pink lemonade" and cherry jello with limes for a "cherry limeade."
