Edible Flower Lemon Jello Shots Recipe

Edible Flower Lemon Jello Shots — Nothing serves up a shot glass size of spring quite like this super easy to make lemon jello shots recipe, don’t you think?!

Edible Flower Lemon Jello Recipe

To be totally honest with you, I just had my first ever jello shot recently. Hence, the inspiration for these Edible Flower Lemon Jello Shots recipe.

Despite being new to the world of jello shots, 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 the aforementioned 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.

They’re just as cute (and tasty) whether you make them as a cocktail or mocktail.

Top them with a sprinkle of edible flowers and it’s like your own mini dose of spring all year long…
