3. Put the hollowed oranges into a large, flat-bottomed tupperware or baking dish, then carefully pour in the Jell-O mixture.

It's easier to pour the Jell-O if you first transfer it to liquid measuring cup, or any other heatproof container that's easy to pour from.


Wheat Beer Jell-O Shots

Makes about 30 wedges

Recipe by Christine Byrne


5 to 6 large navel oranges

1 6-ounce package orange-flavored Jell-O

¾ cup boiling water

½ cup ice water

12 ounces (1½ cup) wheat beer, such as Blue Moon


Slice the oranges in half, lengthwise, and hollow them out: To do this, remove the flesh by cutting it away from the pith then peeling it out. (Eat the orange flesh or save it for another use.) Arrange the hollow orange peel halves on a baking sheet (or a shallow baking dish) cut side-up, like cups. This is what you'll chill the Jell-O shots in, so make sure it fits in your fridge.

Pour the Jell-O powder into a medium mixing bowl and add the boiling water, whisking vigorously until the powder dissolves. Stir in the ice water and then the beer.

Transfer the Jello-O liquid to a heatproof liquid measuring cup to make it easier to pour. Pour the liquid into the orange peels, filling them up to the top. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.

When the Jell-O is set, cut each orange half into 3 wedges. Serve cold.
