  1. Ingredients for Lemon Drop Jello Shots
    Gather your ingredients.
  2. Bring the water to a boil. Use an electric kettle—they boil fast!
  3. Into a mixing bowl, add the contents of 1 box of lemon Jello to the boiling water, and continue stirring until all Jello is dissolved, which will take about 1 minute. Then turn the heat off. Pour in one cup of ice cold vodka and stir for 1 more minute.
  4. Carefully pour the mixture into the shot cups, and set in the fridge to cool and set for 2 hours! Be careful not to spill! If you want to be really safe about it, check out the "Jellinator", and you'll pour more accurately and have less spills!
  5. Next, it's time to sugar rim your jello shots! You can get colored sugar from any grocery store baking section, or from Amazon. Here is a pretty sweet multipack of colored sugars from Amazon.

    How do you keep the ingedients, once set, from sticking to the inside of cup?

      Some say you can spray oil into the cups before filling with jello.. I think you also can gently warm the shots in warm water a bit right before you consume them. 20-30 seconds in warm water should loosen them up a bit. If you don’t warm up the shot, it stays attached to the cup.

    What’s the easiest way to do the sugar rim?

      The easiest and healthiest method I can think of is honey.. dip the rim in honey, then dip that into the sugar that’s been sprinkled on a plate. You could also buy straight corn syrup and use that, it works very well, but not as natural as honey.
