How to Make Strawberry Limoncello Jello Shots

These started out to be strawberry margarita jello shots, but my husbard suggested I try making them with my homemade limoncello instead. I'll save that tutorial for another day. I think they turned out even better!

  1. Choose large, ripe strawberries. Ream out the centers--I used a melon baller and it worked great. Do not go to the bottom.
  2. Slice off the bottoms so that they will stand up. Turn them onto a paper towel to drain.
  3. Boil 1 cup water and combine with 1 small package of strawberry jello. Once the jello is dissolved, take off the heat and add 1 cup limoncello.
  4. Put the strawberries on a cookie sheet and carefully fill with the jello mixture. I found that a small funnel helped. I also found that it helped to work near the refrigerator since the strawberries have a tendency to fall over.
  5. Carefully place in refrigerator until firm. You can add more jello as it tends to settle.
  6. When ready to serve, wet the rims and dip in lemon drop cocktail sugar.
