Funny Story…when Darrick and I first started dating one of his old coworkers had a party and invited us. When we got there, we ate, and when I asked for something to drink they only had a refrigerator full of beer and jello shots…and water. So I grabbed a bottle of water but I also grabbed a couple of jello shots because they were so pretty in the refrigerator! Little did I know that would be the STRONGEST jello shot I would ever have!
Darrick’s coworker forgot to add water to the jello shots, so they were literally just jello mix and liquor! I don’t think I’ve had a jello shot since then until now!!! There was a bond fire and we were supposed to be eating and drinking, however, with no water, the shots were straight liquor with flavoring! We threw a couple into the fire and saw them explode there was so much liquor! Onto now me trying my hand and making my own! And if you knew about my tooth falling out while eating a starburst you would know I totally have a love-hate relationship with the candy! However, these jello shots were delicious!!!
If you know me then you know I pretty much love anything lemon! Lemon cake, cookies, lemon pepper chicken, slushies…literally anything lemon!
With the summer holidays coming up these are guaranteed to be a hit with your crowd! These lemon starburst jello give you just enough lemon flavor! Between the lemon vodka and the starburst, you have the perfect combination!
I didn’t eat the garnish of the jello shot because well I’m scared of hurting my teeth again…but you can definitely enjoy the starburst after or before the shot! My husband loved them! He took the shot and candy together!
