Sparkling Orange Jello Shots
Serves: Makes 10 orange cups, serving up to 20
  • 5 large oranges
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1 can (1½ cups) good quality orange soda such as Orangina or orange flavored San Pellegrino
  1. Halve oranges and squeeze their juice (you'll need 1½ cups). Scrape pulp from each orange half to make a clean shell. Set orange cups in a muffin tin.
  2. In a medium saucepan dissolve gelatin in ½ cup of the orange juice. Whisk in sugar over low heat until gelatin and sugar melt. Remove pan from heat and add vodka, San Pellegrino, and remaining orange juice.
  3. Lay oranges in muffin tins and fill with jell-o mixture. Place the pan in the fridge and chill for at least four hours.
If you’re looking to make these non-alcoholic, simply replace the vodka with additional orange juice or orange soda. This recipe easily halves.
