Fancy Pink Lemonade Jello Shots

Like my cake pops, my fancy jello shots are no stranger to this blog.  (Check out my Blood Orange, and Watermelon Jello Shots)  They have been so popular and they are so much fun that I had to try a different flavor/color variation for our Southern themed Gold Cup tailgate.  Meet the pink lemonade jello shot.

10 lemons, *one box watermelon (or any kind of pink color) jello * 1 cup vodka  *1 cup boiling water - 10 lemons makes 40 jello shots -

The step by step recipe for these awesome adult treats are posted here (with photos) in my watermelon version.


Tips: I've learned so far that you must buy "Jello" brand jello or the shots are way too strong. Also I prefer the flavor that oranges or lemons lend to jello over the bitter taste of limes, but the combinations are endless!

In addition to our jello shots we had collard greens, blueberry corn muffins, pimento cheese dip, a feta and green apple salad, brown sugar and pecan cookies, deli sandwiches, a cheese and crackers spread, and more.

Gold Cup was so much fun that we already have our outfits and menu planned out for next year. Photo credits to Maggie Mae's fiance Ben, who did a great job making all of us look amazing.

  14. what do you do to the rhine to make the jello not taste so bitter?

  15. Hey Patty, the shots actually taste good with a little of the lemony flavor, they aren't bitter at all because you remove all of the lemon fruit. :)

  17. These are so cool looking. I'm wondering if using lemon jello and iced tea vodka to make an "Arnold Palmer"-type shot would work. I'll have to give that a shot. If anyone's done that or wants to try it and let me know cause I know it'll be awhile before I can get around to trying it.
