Don’t Swim and Jell-O Shot At The Same Time

Warning:  These little shots are powerful!!  I’ve made them three times now, first using tequila instead of the vodka….way too much kick!  I then switched to vodka, so much better but used too much lime juice.  Last try, Citron Vodka andChambord, oh my…..

They are super easy to make and super easy to go down!  When I entertain I like to include little surprises, something fun and unexpected.  One of these refreshing, cool blue jiggly shots starts conversations and laughter flowing.  Two or more really gets the party dancing!

Blue Curacao and Citron Vodka Jell-O Shots

Adapted from Jello Shot Kitchen

¾ cup Citron Vodka

½ cup Blue Curacao

1/3 cup Chambord Liquor

2/3 cup water

2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin

1-2 tablespoons Agave, adjust to your sweetness preference

Pour water and Agave in a saucepan and sprinkle on the gelatin to soak in a few minutes.  Gently heat the water and stir to completely dissolve the gelatin.  Remove from the heat and add in the vodka, Curacao andChambord.  Pour into an 8×8 greased pan or a silicone brownie pan.  Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight to fully set.  Release from silicone or cut into squares.  Makes about 24 shots.

For an after dinner shot, try these Espresso Martini Shots!

  1. I think that I’ll make sure that each guest gets no more than two so that they have lots of fun but don’t fall off our dock as we go out on the boat to watch the 4th of July fireworks.

  2. I saw your title in my inbox and just giggled. I love it! These shots look amazing. I haven’t had a jello shot in years! I forgot how good they were (and potent!).

  3. Here in Arizona we swelter to come up with ideas for summer appetizers that are cool and refreshing – this is it! Thank you so much for this posting.

  4. These jello shots look much better than any I’ve ever made. Love the combination of liquors you used–I have no doubt they’re very strong! Perfect little 4th of July treat. 😉
