Alternatively, you have the option of blending both strawberry and lemon vodkas for a dynamic combination. Another creative approach is to utilize a single 3-ounce pack of strawberry Jell-O alongside another 3-ounce pack of lemon Jell-O, resulting in a visually distinct presentation for your jello shots.
How to Make Strawberry Lemonade Jello Shots
FIRST STEP: In a medium bowl or large (4-cup) measuring cup with a spout, whisk together the strawberry jello mix and 1 cup of boiling water until the jello is fully dissolved.
SECOND STEP: Once the jello is fully dissolved, stir in the cold water, lemon vodka, and Triple Sec. Mix until combined.
THIRD STEP: Carefully pour the mixture between small plastic shot cups. Fill just under the top, so they don’t spill.
FOURTH STEP: Transfer jello shots to the refrigerator and chill for 4 hours until set.
FIFTH STEP: Just before serving, top each jello shot with a gummy fruit slice.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you freeze jello shots?
We find that jello shots don’t freeze well because of the gelatin and alcohol. While you can pop them in the freezer for a few minutes to help speed along the setting process, you shouldn’t store them in the freezer after they’re done. If you have any leftover jello shots, you can store them in the fridge for up to a week with their lids tightly on. You can make them 1 to 2 days ahead of your party before serving, but make sure you are storing the containers with the lids on.
Can I use regular vodka in this recipe?
This simple recipe is best made using lemon vodka as it would lose the lemony flavor if you replaced it with regular vodka.
What size shot glasses should I use?
Different stores carry different-sized plastic shot glasses, ranging from 1.5 ounces to 2.5 ounces. Use what you can find, and just know that this recipe will make fewer or more jello shots depending on the size of your disposable shot glasses.
How to Store Strawberry Lemonade Jello Shots
IN THE FRIDGE: Jello shots will keep in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Cover if you use containers that do not come with individual lids; otherwise, pop the lids on for storage. Do not store with candy on top of the jello.
IN THE FREEZER: Because of the gelatin and alcohol, this jello shot recipe doesn’t tend to freeze very well.
