Jello Shot Orange Slices

Are you familiar with Pinterest? It’s an on-line/virtual bulletin board – in other words, when you come across a really cool idea on-line, rather than bookmarking the site – if it has a photo, you can “pin” the site to a virtual bulletin board that you have created. You can also look at, with the option to follow, other people’s ideas that they have pinned – for example, my Baking 4 Six Pinterest Page.

So, what’s Pinterest have to do with jello made in orange rinds? Okay, I’m sure you guessed that I came across this idea on Pinterest and just had to try it for myself and these are what I came up with…


Jello Shot Orange Slices

  • 3-4 medium oranges
  • 1 small package of Jello (geletin dessert)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup ice-cold water
  • 1/2 cup vodka

Slice the oranges in half and “juice” them. Be careful not to make a hole in the rind; you may need to scrape out some of the “pulp” with a spoon. Place the hollowed out orange halves into a cupcake pan. Place in the refrigerator.

Pour the Jello into a bowl with a pouring spout. (I used a glass/Pyrex measuring cup). Add the 1 cup of boiling water and stir until the Jello is dissolved. Stir in the 1/2 cup of ice-cold water and the 1/2 cup of vodka. Remove the tray with the oranges from the refrigerator and fill the empty orange halves with the Vodka/Jello mixture. Put back into the refrigerator until set/firm – approximately 4 hours. If you are not serving immediately, cover the filled oranges with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated. When you are ready to serve, slice each half into 3 sections.

options:   Non-alcoholic and/or Children’s party idea – replace the 1/2 cup cold water and the 1/2 cup vodka/alcohol with 1 cup of cold soda pop.  Fill Lemon or Lime halves instead of oranges.
