Jello shot orange slices

I am currently mesmerized by these mimosa jello shots, served in the peels of the oranges juiced to make them. They are absolutely ridiculous and I love them. A little something for New Year's Day?


  1. I made a version of these with limes and cherry jello.  Chocolate jimmies sprinkled on top completed the mini-watermelon slice effect.

  2. Some hard-earned tips:
    – The larger the citrus fruit, the easier it is to remove the fruit from inside it. Grapefruits are very easy – limes are nearly not worth the trouble.
    – The fruit removal is a HUGE pain. Get it started with a spoon, then use your fingers to separate the wedges the rest of the way. (I found the spoon tended to dig through the rind if I went too far with it.)
    – The reaction that comes from those who haven’t put two-and-two together (“How did you get the jello to set in a wedge shape?”) is TOTALLY worth it.

  3. A non-alcoholic version of this seems like a perfect treat for kids’ lunches if you’re into the bento style of doing things.
