Use Fresh Fruit As Jelly Shot Containers

If you're a social drinker, it's likely that from time to time you may consume jelly shots. If you don't want to clean up hundreds of disposable cups after the party and especially if you have a compost bin you may want to consider using fresh fruit to contain your gelatine libations.

Instructables user ModMischief came up with several inventive jelly shot recipes and containers, among them chocolate strawberry shots in a strawberry, gin and tonic served in a cucumber, naughty Shirley Temple shots formed around cherries and lime margarita in a lime peel.

Most of the containers are easy to figure out. The strawberries can be hollowed out with a drinking straw and we've covered how to make cucumber shot glasses. The cherry shots are made in a muffin tin with the jelly forming around the cherry and released by dipping the chilled muffin pan in a sink of warm water. Finally, to make the citrus shots cut a lime/lemon/orange in half and scoop out the flesh of the fruit. Pour in the jelly mix and allow it to set then cut the fruit into wedges.

These are fun and instead of lots of little plastic cups to throw away you can toss the fruit peels in your compost.
