To Line Glasses (optional)

  • Wedge of citrus
  • Sprinkles

Jello Shots

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 oz jello mix any flavor that goes well with orange
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup triple sec

Triple Sec Whipped Cream

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon triple sec chilled


Line Your Glasses (Optional)

  1. Pour sprinkles into a shallow dish.
  2. Cut a slit in a wedge of citrus and run it around the edge of your shot glass. Dip glass in the sprinkles and set aside.

Jello Shots

  1. In a microwave-safe liquid measuring cup, heat water for 1 to 2 minutes, until steaming. Stir in jello mix until completely dissolved.
  2. Allow mixture to cool until it is not burning hot to the touch.
  3. Add vodka and triple sec.
  4. Divide mixture between shot glasses and refrigerate for 2-3 hours, until firm.

Triple Sec-Infused Whipped Cream

  1. Once jello shots are set, combine cream, triple sec, and sugar in your stand mixer and whip until stiff peaks form, 2-3 minutes. If making by hand or with a hand-held mixer, place your bowl and whisk/whisk attachments in the freezer for at least 15 minutes before starting.
  2. Pipe whipped cream on to each of your shots with a piping bag or a plastic bag with the corner snipped off.
