March Madness Coconut Vodka Jell-O Shots

You all know by now what big fans we are of Jell-O shots - in our minds they're the perfect spiked dessert thanks to the many flavor combos you can mix up, the fun ways you can serve them and how easy they are to prepare.

In honor of March Madness, and thanks to our friends at Ciroc Ultra Premium Vodka, we're making basketball Jell-O shots. A mix of mango Jell-O and Ciroc Coconut Vodka served in clementines, these shots don't just look awesome, they taste amazing, too!


1 packet Mango Jell-O

1 cup boiling water

1 cup Ciroc Coconut Vodka, chilled

10 clementines, halved

Black decorating gel pen, optional


Prepare your clementines first. Wash and then halve the fruit by slicing from the top to the bottom so that you have a clean base. Next, using a melon spoon, remove the fruit so you leave only the skin's shell and a bit of fruit at the very bottom. The clementines should rest easily on the plate without support.

Next, prepare your mango Jell-O as you normally would, but replace the 1 cup of chilled water with 1 cup of Ciroc Coconut Vodka. We recommend mixing this in a pitcher with a spout so that it's easy to pour.

Finally, fill your clementine halves with the Jell-O mixture and place in the fridge to set for at least four hours. In honor of March Madness, we used a black decorating gel pen to draw lines on our clementines so they resembled basketballs!
