Lemon Drop Jello Shots

Lemon Drop Jello Shots


  • 6 lemons– cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 (3 oz. pkg.) lemon jello
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup cold lemon vodka (optional)


  1. Empty out the lemons to create a vessel. Juice the lemons first as it makes it easier for pulp removal. Reserve juice.
  2. Hollow out the lemons by turning them inside out and take out the pith and membrane.
  3. Make jello according to box instructions (but use all ingredients shown in our recipe – minus the lemons)
  4. Place lemon cups into muffin pan holes. Pour in jello.
  5. Chill overnight – Use a sharp, straight edge knife to cut into wedges


If you want to make a virgin version of this recipe, replace the vodka with more water or lemon juice. Adjust each to your taste, just be sure the mixture adds up to 1/2 cup.
