Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots

Yum! Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots (click through for recipe) Of all the “summer” flavors out there, one of my favorites is the orange and cream combination. It can be a popsicle, a soda, a dessert—it doesn’t really matter, I’ll probably love it. We stopped by The Pharmacy last time we were in Nashville, and I got the most delicious homemade orange creamsicle soda that you could ever imagine. Now what’s one of our favorite things to do here at the blog? That’s right, make flavors we love as jello shots!

Yum! Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots (click through for recipe) First you’ll want to cut the oranges in half and remove the orange sections from the orange peel. You can do this either by scooping them out with a spoon or using a handheld juicer to first juice the orange as much as possible and then scoop out any remaining orange. Just be careful not to dig down too deep and make a hole in your peel—all your jello will leak out the bottom if you do!

Add in your vodka, triple sec, ice cream and stir to combine. Pour into a measuring cup or some other container with a spout. Place your hollowed out orange halves in a muffin tin to keep them stable, and pour in your jello mixture to the top of each orange half.

Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots (click through for recipe) You can either serve these all on a plate together or in individual shot glasses with a rim of sugar around the top. These are probably some of my favorite jello shots as far as taste goes, and I think it’s because of the ice cream. It really adds that creamy taste that you would expect from a creamsicle. I love that with the exception of scooping out the orange middles (that part’s a bit messy), this is actually a really easy process with an extra cute payoff at the end—and they are really fun to eat! A total mind trick for sure, but one that I highly recommend! xo. Laura
