FUN TIME!!!! Super yummy fun for adult time! It was FINALLY nice enough to fire up the grill pit and have an outdoor evening with some adult treats with our friends!
6 medium sized oranges
2 cups orange juice
2 cups chilled whipped cream or vanilla flavored vodka*
sugar to taste**
4 packets gelatin
Slice oranges in half and carefully scoop out the flesh leaving the peels in tact. Set aside on a baking sheet or dish. A dish might work well to keep them standing upright better than a pan because they can be butted closer.
I juiced the flesh but if you dont want to do that , premade juice is just fine.
Bring orange juice to a boil. Remove from heat and Add in sugar to taste.
Pour vodka into the hot orange juice and whisk well, until gelatin is dissolved. (about 5 minutes or so)
Pour the mixture into prepared orange peels.
Place in the fridge and allow to set(around 2 hours or so, if you need them faster and have a good flat surface available they can be put in the freezer, mine were done within the hour)
When fully set, slice into wedges and enjoy!!
*If you dont have flavored vodkas available you can use regular and add in vanilla extract(1 tsp at a time to taste) You can also play with the ratio of oj to vodka, if you want less potent ones, go with 3 cups oj and 1 cup vodka or any variation you like!
These would also be fantastic with another flavored vodka, mango was one I thought would go really well!
** I did not add any sugar this first time , next time I will add in a few tablespoons to start, it is all up to your sweet tooth
