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)

  • Pour sprinkles into a shallow dish.
  • 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

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

Triple Sec-Infused Whipped Cream

  • 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.
  • Pipe whipped cream on to each of your shots with a piping bag or a plastic bag with the corner snipped off.
