Pink Lemonade Jello Shots

Pink Lemonade Jello Shots! (click through for recipe!) 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!

Pink Lemonade Jello Shots! (click through for recipe!) 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 on a cute tray 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

    I have never made jello shots before, and I made these for a party this past weekend. They were a hit! After reading the reviews, I changed the gelatin for flavored jello. They were a bit sweet (for my taste), but people loved them. Personally, I would probably do one flavored packet and one unflavored. Enjoy, all!

  • I made these last night and went to cut them and what a mess. It doesn’t look like your pictures and they are so bitter. taking to a party. Still going to take them, but made some in disposable shot cups. Added a cup of sugar and a whole can of pink lemonade consecrate. Taste better to me, not sweet. Very disappointed in the way mine turned out, followed your recipe exactly and I have been making jello shots for years. Maybe someone else will like them, just to bitter for me.

  • If I made these two days before, but didn’t slice them into wedges till the day of, do you think they would still be ok?

  • What do you do with the actual lemon ? Juice and carvings do you use it at all for the shots?

    • Very bitter tasting. I would suggest using lemon flavored jello instead of unflavored gelatin

    • Definitely! The lemon flavor just won’t be as strong.

  • Those are the cutest and prettiest Summer Fun, ever! Love ’em!

  • Hmm, i don’t know if carbonated liquid works as well with gelatin, I would google that a bit to see before trying!

    Laura

  • Yep! You just want to keep the liquid ratio the same so add more lemonade instead of the vokda 🙂

    Laura

  • Any pink lemonade should work, I think mine even had some strawberry flavor in it too 🙂
