Classy Jello Shots…Yes, classy!

1 Jul

Let’s admit it – Jello shots aren’t exactly classy – But these one’s are!

I was first introduced to these little delights when a friend brought them to my birthday party in 2011. They have been a summer staple ever since.

You can use any kind of fruit and any flavor of Jello, too.


  • 1 box of lime Jell-O
  • Limes (as many as you would like)
  • Your choice of liquor.  *Absolut Citron or tequila with the lime??

Cut the limes in half lengthwise and clear out the insides. This part can be brutal. Jeff and I spent an hour on this part. I’m sure there is an easier way, but I’m not quite sure what it is…

Prepare the Jell-O according to the instructions on the box. Reduce the water portion by ¼ cup and replace with your alcohol of choice.

You want to make sure that your limes are set onto a surface that will keep them up right. I used a muffin pan. Pour your Jell-O mix into the lime shells and then place them into the refrigerator to set over night or for however long the Jell-O box instructs

When they are ready, cut each lime in half to make the perfect bight sized lime Jell-O shot!


Try these variations:

Watermelon in a Lime shell








Strawberry Margarita
