Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots

by jerseygirl on July 17, 2011 · 30 comments


Our weekend was a fun one filled with parties. It was a jello shot type of weekend! I thought it would be fun to experiment with different types of flavors but the orange jello shots seemed to be everyone’s favorites. If you need a conversation piece at a party, make some of these. They are fairly easy to put together and fun. But don’t eat (or should I say drink?) too many. You can easily make these in plastic cups rather than orange peels. The orange peel method is much more time consuming but the presentation is worth it!

Here are some tips to make these:

*Make sure there is no holes in the oranges. It is beat to cut the oranges the long way and tun inside out to scoop out all the pulp. If you have a leak, the jello will be all over your fridge.

*Use muffin tins to hold the oranges. It will eliminate any mess.

*Use a cutting board with a sharp knife when ready to cut the oranges.

*Experiment with different flavored vodkas. This is the fun part! I used orange whipped creme vodka but you can also use plain vodka or orange flavored vodka.

*Put the filled orange cups in the freezer for a few minutes as this will speed up the chilling process.

Okay, now it’s time to find out how to make some.


Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots

3 large oranges
1 small package orange flavored Jello (or another brand)
3/4 cup boiling water
1/4 cup juice from the oranges
3/4 cup orange whipped creme vodka

Directions:
1. Slice oranges in half. Juice the oranges and reserve the juice. Using a spoon, scoop out all the remaining flesh and pith.
2. In a bowl, mix jello and boiling water until powder is dissolved. Add orange juice and vodka and mix thoroughly.
3. Put the orange halves in muffin tins. Pour the liquid into the halves. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for approximately 4 hours or overnight. You can also put in the freezer for 15 minutes to speed things up.
4. When jello is very firm firm, slice each half into 4 sections. Makes about 24 shots.

I love jello shots! I could see where eating too many of these might be a problem. They look so good I would want to eat a bunch. Great job Lisa!

OMG. These look really great. I just made some lychee ones the other day. Got to see how much jello you add. I find different jello brands act differently.

Oh these are just too adorable. I've made them with regular jello for kids, but never thought to put in the booze and make it an adult treat.

I tried these with the normal jello recipe and after I cut them the jello just fell out of the peel. Do you use less water than it asks to make them stiffer? Thanks!

Yes, Holly. I would use about 1/4 cup less water if you just wanted to do non alcoholic regular jello.
