Orange Slice Jello Shooters

This year for my birthday, I had a little kids themed birthday party. It was probably the best birthday that I have had – there was a magician and a clown; we had a pinata that I got to pummel; we gave out goodie bags; there were amazing balloon animals, everyone dressed in their finest little kid party attire; we served cotton candy, rice crispie treats, mac and cheese balls, homemade oreos, and MY personal favourite – Orange Slice Jello Shooters.


Cut oranges in halves. Hollow out the fruit using a paring knife and small spoon. I suggest squeezing out all of the juice and pulp to make juice. Be quite careful when you do this, you don’t want to pierce the skin of the fruit. Try to clean the pith of the fruit as much as you can or it will show in your wedges.

Make the Jell-O according to the package instructions but reduce the cold water portion by 1/4 cup and replace with your chilled drink of choice (my birthday party called for vodka). I also put in a little bit of the orange juice that I squeezed from the oranges.

Chill your little orange bowls overnight (mine did a balancing act in the fridge on shot glasses, espresso cups, and muffin tins).

Use a SHARP straight edge knife to cut into wedges (serrated knife will leave tracks, dull knife will leave your wedges somewhat mangled)

You could try this with other citrus fruits as well. Maybe some Lemon Drops, or Lime with Tequilla?
