Party Time!! Who wants some Jell-O Shots?
Me, Me, Me!! 😎
Most of us know a Tequila Sunrise is a classic tequila drink with orange juice and grenadine that rises from the bottom and simulates a sunrise. So pretty, right??!!!
Well…This jello shot is a REVERSE tequila sunrise, so it’s flip-flopped, thus being called the “Flip-Flop” Tequila Sunrise Jello Shot.
Pretty cool, huh? Fruity and fun!!
Being this is Labor Day weekend, the term “flip-flop” reminds me of relaxing, being on the beach and slurping on these fun and tasty alcoholic jello shots. Winning!
Did you know Labor Day refers to honoring workers and recognizing their contributions to society.
So, celebrate and make these jello shots for your family and friends this holiday weekend! Let’s *Cheers* to all the laborers!
Have a fun and safe weekend! Here’s the recipe party peeps!!
"Flip Flop" Tequila Sunrise Jell-O Shots
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 small package Orange Jell-O 3 oz.
- 1 cup Tequila
- 1 cup boiling water I added 1/2 cherry juice, 1/2 water for this layer
- 1 small package of Cherry Jell-O 3 oz.
- 1 cup Tequila
- Maraschino Cherries for tops of shots
Place shot glasses on baking sheets and spray with non-stick spray.
Boil water for Orange Layer. Dissolve Orange Jell-O into boiled water. Add tequila and stir.
Fill jell-o mix into each shot cup up to 2/3rds full. Chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
Repeat the Jell-O making process by mixing the second layer of Cherry Jell-O, tequila and boiling water/cherry mixture.
Pull out the set cups from the refrigerator. Pour the second layer into the cups. Place back in the refrigerator and let set, just enough to hold the next layer for 15 minutes and place the cherry on top of Cherry Jell-O layer by pressing down lightly and put back in fridge.
After the last layer has been poured, let the final product set for at least one hour before serving.
Recipe NotesYou can substitute Vodka, Rum or whatever liquor you would like if Tequila isn't your cup of choice.
Makes 22 - 24 Jello Shots
