To be totally honest with you, I’ve never actually had a jello shot in my life. That being said, I do love me some jello for the sake of how simple it is to make and how low-calorie a homemade version can be, plus I’ve been around long enough to know there is a need for a much prettier (or classier) version of said jello shots.

Technically this edible flower lemon jello shot is just served in miniature shot glass portions, but you can make them with or without the booze and they’re just as cute (and tasty!). Plus I think we could all use a mini dose of Spring right about now…

Edible Flower Lemon Jello Recipe

Ingredients (makes 24 shot glasses):

  • 4 envelopes gelatin (1 ounce)
  • 4  large freshly squeezed lemons
  • 2 1/2 Cups water
  • 1 1/2 Cups sugar (or stevia for a low calorie version)
  • 1 1/2 Cups vodka and 1/2 cup of Cointreau (only add if you’re making an alcoholic version, obviously. otherwise replace with the equivalent amount of water)
  • Edible flowers for garnishing

Edible Flower Lemon Jello Recipe

Heat the gelatin, water, lemon juice, and sugar over the stove as you traditionally would for about 5-10 minutes or until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and add in the liquor at the very end or it will evaporate. 

Pour the mixture into individual shot glasses and add a few edible flower petals to each glass just before placing into the refrigerator, and let it set overnight or for a minimum of 6 hours.

You can also always skip the shot glass version for a parfait dish or traditional 8×8 pan and then cut into mini square bites to serve.

    When do you add the lemon juice and how much? I realize it says 4 lemons but they vary in size. I would love to make these for my daughters wedding shower this summer. Thank you

      four large lemons and you add the juice with the water and sugar at the beginning- totally left out those details, thank you for letting me know!!
