How many of you have ever had Jell-O shots? I can tell you that these are cool little hard booze treats to have on hand and share with your adult friends for tailgating or other group events! What better way to honor a drink than to make Jell-O shots out of them, right? Ok, I might be pushing the boundaries of what ‘honoring’ might mean, but I did want to try and do something a bit different for our Moscow Mule series. I thought that the flavors of a Moscow Mule would be fun as a Jell-O shot. So, today, we are making Moscow Mule Jell-O Shots.

Moscow Mule Jell-O Shots Make Sense!

Most of the flavors that we are talking about in a Moscow Mule cocktail are already fairly common in Jell-O shots, but I thought I would just kick it up a notch and make it a full blown recipe. I mean, lime is a very common Jell-O favor, right? Using vodka to make Jell-O shots? Also common. What is missing? That zing of ginger.

So, by using lime Jell-O, vodka, and some ginger, we are sprucing up your typical Jell-O shots to be Moscow Mule Jell-O Shots. It is a beautiful thing, right?

    I never thought of jell-o shots in a moscow mule flavor, but you’re so right – most of the ingredients are already needed! Clever idea!

    I love the addition of the fresh grated ginger. I’m kinda nuts about ginger. We are actually making a football playoff roadtrip this weekend to Kansas City to watch our Titans play, my crew will love these.

    Oh man! That is one flavourful jello shot!! My husband LOVES lime jello too and has been begging me to make it for him – I think I will finally cave and surprise him with these jello shots! (Without telling him about the booze, is that evil? pwahaha!) 🙂

      probably a bit evil, but sometimes we gotta satiate that little devil in us, right?
