Sangria Jello Shot

We have a deep love for all things jello, which we’ve proven time and time again by transforming everything from classic cocktails to Oreos to Champagne into fun, jiggly snacks. So it’s about time we got around to jello-fying Sangria. The party-sized punch is a Jello Shot no-brainer, with its bold flavors and fresh fruit chunks. Using packets of orange Jell-O and grape Jell-O isn’t just a convenient short cut; the tangy jello heightens the citrusy kick of the curaçao and the jammy flavors of the red wine. Suspend fresh fruit in the shots for a burst of flavor and a retro feel that harkens back to the Jell-O salads of the 1950s.
 
Makes about 24 shots.
