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

PS: you will have some leftover, just pop it into a glass container and eat with a spoon! You can totally make these 1 day ahead but I would do the chamoy and tajin rim after the fact, right before serving.

Why You’ll Love Orange Mezcalita Jello Shots

These orange mezcalita jello shots are so boozy, citrusy and perfect. These are super easy to make and they are absolutely delicious. They are perfect for summer parties, and pool days.

Substitutions

You can substitute the orange for lemon like my Lemon Mezcalita Jell-O Shots. You can also substitute the monk fruit for your sugar of choice. If you are not a fan of spicy, you can leave the chamoy and tajin out, and do your favorite rim or leave it as is.

Ingredients 

  • 8 oranges, blood and reg
  • 1 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2-3 shots mezcal
  • 3 gelatin envelopes
  • Monk fruit to taste
  • Tajin to taste
  • Chamoy

Directions 

  • 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
  • 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 1-3 min. Add in hot liquid and mix well, until incorporated. Strain. Add in some tajin and the mezcal
  • 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
