Lemon Drop Martini “Jello Shots”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


I have been fascinated with “Jello Shots” for a long time.  No, not your college days orange jello and cheap vodka version, or the jello shots in a lemon or orange rind, but the sophisticated, grown up version that I first ran across on Jelly Shot Test Kitchen.  The site is still up and has some gorgeous, tasty ideas, although there hasn’t been a new post in 2013 so I am not sure if it is still active.  I believe she has a book out which would be a fun addition to any bartending library, but if you can’t find it run over to her site and print out some of the recipes while you still have a chance.

Getting back to my first foray into the jello shot world, I finally found the perfect opportunity.  I was schedule to host Bunco for 12 women at my house.  If you aren’t familiar with bunco, it is basically a dice game that requires absolutely no skill and we prefer to pair it with copious amounts of alcohol.  It makes for quite an entertaining evening!

This is what happens when you mix bunco & jello shots!

My vision for a jello shot was to create something that resembled a lemon drop.  Who doesn’t love those right?  So I pieced together a bunch of ideas and recipes and came up with this version.  Be forewarned:  they are strong!

The key to these is that there is no jello involved, but rather a lemon/key lime syrup made from scratch and good old Knox gelatin.

Start by making the syrup, which can be done immediately beforehand or the night before and then allow enough time for them to chill thoroughly and plate attractively immediately prior to serving.

Tell me about your favorite party cocktail or jello shot!

    Subo nela diariamente, as vezes fico uns 2 dias no máximo sem me pesar..
    mas fico maluca.. Essa rotina me ajuda bastante a controlar minha gula..
    se estou com fome emocional e comi mais do que deveria..

    é batata que refletirá na balança.
