Have a refreshing summer cocktail in solid form! These low carb Cosmo Jello Shots are a fun way to chill out at your next backyard bbq or get together.
Yay, it’s Friday! It’s the end of a long week and you deserve a cocktail. Or maybe you’re on vacation right now; perfect excuse for a cocktail. Or maybe you work weekends and you just need to relax a bit before your workday starts. Have a cocktail! Really, let’s face it, any time is a good time for a cocktail. Especially when they are sugar-free, delicious and served in cute little lime wedges.
Okay, so jello shots aren’t really cocktails. I mean, yes, they have all the makings of a cocktail but they are in solid (semi-solid) form and you can’t sit there and sip them slowly while chatting to friends. And I don’t know too many people who are going to sit around and pop enough jello shots to equal the strength of a real cocktail. Perhaps some college-age kids might be up to the challenge, but I’d feel a little silly trying to make my way through happy hour by downing jello shots. Still, these low carb Cosmopolitan Jello Shots are so fun and cute and perfect to serve as a little treat at a backyard bbq or summer get-together. Just don’t get them mixed up with the kids’ jello. Then we might have a problem.
Summer is in full swing and the folks at Swerve wanted me to come up with a fun hot-weather treat to showcase the low carb sweetener. An adult treat, if you will. The kids may be out for summer but they don’t get to have all the fun! We deserve a little too, especially while the warm weather is here. So why not feel like a kid again and make a little jello. Jello with an adult edge!
Makes about 18 to 24 shots. Each shot has approximately 37 cal and 2 g of carbs (all other counts are negligible).
