Thirsty Thursday – Orange Wedge Jell-O Shots

                                      Orange Wedge Jell-O Shots

What you’ll need:
2 oranges
1 package orange flavored Jell-O
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup Vodka

1. Slice oranges in half. Using a spoon, scoop out all the flesh and divider pith. Put aside for later use.
2. In a bowl, mix Jell-O and boiling water using a wire whisk. When all of the Jell-O has dissolved, add vodka and mix thoroughly.
3. Pour liquid Jell-O into orange halves. Cover with plastic cling wrap and refrigerate for approximately 4 hours, preferably overnight.
4. Once Jell-O is firm, slice each half into 3 wedges and serve.

Makes 12 Jell-O shots.

    Genius, Patty! Where do you find these things?

      I recalled hollowing out one of those tiny, seedless, watermelons a long time ago; filled it with Jello and fresh fruit….cut it into wedges once it set. Did a search for out-of-the box Jello shots and found this….might be cute for the kids…without the booze of course.

  6. Oh my goodness, this is WAY more creative than my Limoncello Spritzer! Love it! Thanks for stopping over at Yummy Mummy. I just opened a weekly linky party and would love for you to join in every Friday and link up any creative post(s) you have!

    • Slidecutter says:

      Your Limoncello's are wonderful, don't sell them short. Just perfect for these dastardly hot days we're having here in New York.

      Looking forward to your Linky!

    Found you at 'Thirsty Thursday' – this sounds so good, and simple. We don't drink, but there are about a billion ideas flying through my head for 'virgin' versions.

    • Slidecutter says:

      This is simple, colorful and fun, Jules and, with endless possibilities. I've made these, sans alcohol, with a Lemon Jell-O set in the orange wedges. Let your imagination fly!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Ashley says:

    All your posts just suddenly showed up in my reader. Yay! These are amazing! So making these for our next party!

    I just bookmarked a site the other day that had the same thing only lemon. I don't like lemon and my brain is not smart enough to consider using another flavor. Thank you for this recipe…I am going to need it tomorrow while dealing with my psycho in-laws!
