Jello Shot Lemon Drops

 

I just was given this recipe and haven’t tried it yet but I have every intention on trying it this weekend…. if I don’t like it (yea right) I will take the post off ….  if I like it as much as I like the liquid Lemon Drops then I may have found my new diet 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 8 large lemons
  • 2 packages of lemon Jello
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup lemon Vodka
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar for dipping
  • muffin pan/pans

Directions:

  1. Cut the lemons in half,   lengthwise and use a spoon to core out the lemons – don’t tear the skins !! (squeeze the pulp and save the juice)
  2. Boil up 1 cup of water
  3. In a large bowl combined 1 cup boiling water and 2 boxes of jello together… stir until well dissolved.
  4. Now add the vodka, lemon juice, and cold water. Stir well.
  5. Place lemon peels in the muffin pans so you may fill peels up with liquid.
  6. Fill lemon cup peels to the top but not overflowing.
  7. Place in fridge for at least 4 hrs to harden.
  8. Once firm run a sharp smooth knife under hot water and slice lemons to make cute little lemon wedges.
  9. Place sugar on a plate and dip slices (both sides) in sugar right before giving the shots.

You can do this with limes as well using lime Jello and Lime Vodka …. come on summer !!!!!

 

“Tip”….Clean hands

Ok tiny hand washing lecture…. here is why.

I recently saw a friend clean her counter top with a Lysol wipe and then immediately (without even rinsing her hands off) grab a slippery slab of steak and toss it on the grill. I’m glad I wasn’t having dinner at her house, was all I could think.  Maybe she hates her husband I dont know but I’m sure Lysol isn’t a recommended seasoning for steak.  Not to sound like your mother, but you really should always wash your hands before cooking. I know you think to yourself “Im going to have to handle that slimy meat then wash my hands anyway,” but your bringing a different type of germ to your food. Some are hard to kill even by cooking. So trust me your mom and home- ec.  teacher were  right on that one…. but it is evenmore important that you wash them after you man handle all that raw meat. Here’s my secret to clean, fresh smelling hands.

After handling raw chicken, fish and other meats wash hands thoroughly with hot water and soap, then dry them. Then for clean , no-slime, fresh feeling hands that smell good, toss some lemon juice on your hands, rub them together and rinse. Ahhh…

It also works well after chopping onions and garlic to help take the smell off your hands 🙂

 

P.S

No I do not have an OCD …lol.   :p
