Happy 4th of July!! I’m celebrating with these festive jello shots. No packaged jello here…just fresh fruit, juice, gelatin (and of course a hefty portion of vodka).
I love jello shots for a party, but don’t love the regular jello options–either you have the one thats packed with sugar or the sugar-free one that is packed with a million fake ingredients. I used pureed strawberries in the bottom half and lemonade, seltzer, and whole blueberries in the top half. These are also infinitely adaptable…you can use any type of fruit, juice, and alcohol you like as long as you keep it in the right gelatin/liquid ratio.
For the mold I used silicone ice cube trays to pop them out more easily (but this was till the most challenging part of the endeavor and there were a few casualties). These are the perfect way to celebrate the 4th of July or really any event!

Ingredients (this is will fill about 1 ice cube tray so double if you want more):
