Summer is all about party foods, am I right? What excites me the most about going to a picnic or pool party is really what’s being served at the snack table more than anything else. We’ve done our fair share of jello shots here at the blog, and I always have some extra love for the ones that are really cute as well as really tasty, so I thought a pink lemonade version of a lemon drop shot would be just the thing to get this summer started off right. They may look complicated, but they are super easy to make – I promise!
2 packets of unflavored gelatin
1 cup pink lemonade
1/2 cup regular vodka
1/2 cup lemon vodka or Lemon Eddy
Heat the lemonade in a pan over medium heat and stir in the packets of gelatin slowly until they dissolve. Add the lemonade and gelatin mixture to a bowl and pour in your vodka liquids. Stir until combined.
Transfer the liquid into a pourable container and place your lemon halves into a muffin tin to keep them upright. Pour in the liquid until each half is full and refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.
Remove the tin once the lemons have set and slice into slices right before serving. Enjoy!
How pretty are these all sliced up? Such a cute look for a summer party. You can make them with water instead of vodka if you’d like them for a kid’s party instead. If making these for an outdoor party, I would serve them on a bed of ice to keep the jello from melting too quickly. Cut them into bigger or smaller slices depending on the serving size you want, and watch them disappear!! xo. Laura
