Fresh Strawberry Jello Shots

I made and brought some of these to a BBQ this week. 

Big hit.  Huge.

They really are that good.   They are actually pretty easy to make, just require a little bit of patience and attention to detail.

Fresh Strawberry Jello Shots
- 24-30 large strawberries
- 1 6 oz. package of strawberry Jello
- 2/3 cup boiling water, plus 1/2 cup ice
- 1 cup vodka
- whipped cream if desired

Start by selecting large strawberries.  Carefully remove tops and hollow out the hull a bit inside.  Trim just the tip of the bottom so that the berry can stand up, making sure that you don't cut off too much (you don't want there to be a hole at the bottom).  Arrange them in a shallow dish so they are standing upright.

Add boiling water to Jello, ensuring it is fully dissolved.  Add vodka, then ice and stir until it starts to set.  To speed the process, put the Jello in the freezer for about 5 minutes.

Once Jello has begun to set, spoon into hulled berries.  Chill in fridge until set.  Top with whipped cream if desired.
