Using lemon wedges as a mold, these 4-ingredient jello shots are impossibly easy and super impressive for potlucks and parties. Make sure to chill these for a minimum of 4 hours (though overnight is ideal), as they will be much easier to cut and hold their shape.

What You'll Need

  • 4 whole lemons
  • 1 cup pink lemonade
  • 2 packages plain gelatin
  • 1 cup vodka
  • Optional: 2 drops of pink food coloring

How to Make It

  1. Cut the lemons in half. Using a paring knife and spoon, carefully hollow out the insides.
  2. Add the lemonade to a pot or deep pan and sprinkle the gelatin over the juice. Let it sit for 2 minutes to ‘bloom’. You’ll see a ripply film form on the top.

  3. Place the mixture on low heat. Heat and continually whisk until the gelatin evenly dissolves, about 2-5 minutes. Be careful not to let the mixture come to a boil.

  1. Remove from heat and let cool a bit. Stir in the vodka. At this point you can also add a few drops of pink food coloring to get a deeper pink color.

  2. Place the lemon halves face up in a muffin tin. Pour the mixture into lemon halves.

  3. Refrigerate until set, 4-24 hours.

  4. Carefully cut the lemons into wedges and serve. ​
