Jello shots are hilarious! We love them and have quite the archive of novelty yummy jello shot concoctions. I had fun dreaming up a way to make something summery (see here) fit the Thanksgiving theme. Cranberry sauce-inspired jello shots? Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. We tried it and they turned out so cute and festive!
Heat 2 1/4 cup cranberry juice until it boils, pour in bowl and mix in jello until dissolved. Add 3/4 cup orange vodka and pour into shot cups. Put in fridge to set overnight.
To make “virgin” jello shots, simply pour some of the jello into cups before adding vodka. We made a few for the kiddos attending our party!
To garnish, cut small pieces of rosemary and roll fresh cranberries in honey and sugar. Add them to the top of each shot after they’ve set. Be sure to tell your guests that they don’t have to eat the garnishes (although, some of my guests did anyway, ha!)
I gave a little toast to Emma at the beginning of our Friendsgiving party. She works so hard at these recipes every year. It’s inspiring and I hope you enjoy them here on the blog all week! We can’t wait to see your instagrams and tweets on Thanksgiving day. Sharing recipes is one of our biggest passions. Now… who wants a jello shot? 😉 You can serve them in regular shot glasses or you can use cute little glitter cups like these to serve them in and we love to serve them on a pretty wooden serving board as well…
