The A Beautiful Mess Lemon Drop Jello Shots are entirely appropriate for the spring and summer months. The gelatinous desserts are literally set in a lemon peel casing, giving way to a fresh taste that is paired with a funky display.

Originally inspired by a lemon drop martini, the drinks go beyond the standard cocktail by encasing it with actual citrus rinds. To produce the Lemon Drop Jello Shots, the recipe calls for water, sugar, unflavored gelatin, lemon juice and of course, vodka.

Once the ingredients have been stirred together and heated, the liquids are then poured into the lemon casing. Sugar is also lined around the tops of the lemons, further enabling the liquid to congeal directly within the shell.
