J: Fancy Tropical Jello Shots (Yum)

So I just could not come up with a J post. It was...killing me. Then today around like 6pm I had one of those omg Jello! moments. And so...some Jello Shots...for the classy bitch in all of us. *nods*

Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters is all about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.

I'll share my delights or my disasters. Yall feel free to join in and create your own posts, share your favorite recipes, what have you. 
Yes. These Jello shots require lemons.
Any flavor Jello of your picking.
And alcohol of choice. I had wine on hand. So was.

And fuck me but look at that.
I've got my own wine!!
Yeah. I'm kinda a big deal ;)
*fluffs hair*

And yet...I still have to gut my own lemons!
This isn't too bad.
Slice them in half.
Then with a spoon pry out the fleshy bits. 
Best to do this over a bowl. It's messy.

Pour your jello powder into a bowl and add one cup boiling water.
Mix until completely dissolved.
Then add a cup of your alcohol of choice.

Line your lemon halves up on a muffin tin and carefully fill each lemon shell with Jello.
Take care with this. Spill overs will show on final results.

And after about 3-4 hours. Some fancy ass Jello shots.
Not bad! And pretty damn fun.

Have you made Jello shots? Have a favorite way to do them?
