Orange Jello Shots…technically not jello but you get me 😉 These are dangerously easy to eat…😂.

PS: You can totally make these 1 day ahead but I would do the chamoy and tajin rim after the fact, right before serving.

How To Prepare Orange Jello Shots

🍊 First, carefully cut off the ends of the oranges so they are able to stand firm on their own, but don’t cut past the pith.

🧡 Secondly, slice oranges in half and using a citrus juicer extract as much as you can out. I don’t like to completely hollow them out as I love eating the remains with more Chamoy and Tajin.

💧 Bring the water and monk fruit to a boil.

🍋 Sprinkle the gelatin over the orange and lemon juice and let stand for 1-3 minutes. Then, add in hot liquid and mix well, until incorporated. Strain. Then, add in some Tajin and the mezcal.

🌶 Lastly, rim the oranges with Chamoy and Tajin, fill them with the Mezcalita and place in a tall sided container. Place in the fridge, mine solidified in 1 hour.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use lemon like my Lemon Mezcalita Jell-O Shots instead of oranges.
  2. You can use any sugar of choice instead of monk fruit.
  3. You can use your alcohol of choice, such as tequila or vodka instead of mezcal.
  4. If you are not a fan of spicy, you can leave the Chamoy and Tajin out, and do you a sugar rim instead.
