These Fruit Punch Moonshine Jell-O Shots are full of fruit punch flavor and pack quite a punch by using 50 proof moonshine.
Any birthday party I went to as a kid had fruit punch.
Ironically because it was deemed healthier because it had fruit. 😀
You have got to love the power of advertising and marketing.
It didn’t help that we were throwing back cake and ice cream along with the fruit punch.
Luckily for most parents the kids ran around screaming the whole time so by the time you got home your kid was asleep in the back of the car.
Exhausted and in a sugar coma.
Pretty much everyone I know likes fruit punch. Or at least fruit punch flavored items.
A few years ago Jell-O came out with a fruit punch flavor.
And honestly they need to bring it back.
As someone who makes a lot of Jell-O shots I would love to sit down with the makers of Jell-O.
And tell them what flavors they should offer all the time for us Jell-O shot makers.
Because they are missing out on a big market.
Or at least they are right now because based on my traffic you all are making some Jell-O shots.
Since I can no longer find fruit punch flavored Jell-O, I went with their Island Pineapple flavor to make these Fruit Punch Moonshine Jell-O Shots.
It works well with this. I also used Hawaiian Punch Original Red for this.
Because that’s the fruit punch I liked as a kid.
Though Minute Maid Berry Punch is my favorite of all time.
I probably should make a Jell-O shot with that flavor as well.
While traditionally the main booze I use in my Jell-O shots is vodka, I chose to go with moonshine this time.
My favorite Moonshine company (Sugarlands) has NASCAR themed moonshine and when I saw they had a fruit punch flavor I put it in the cart.
Cole Swindell is the fruit punch flavor.
I’m assuming that’s a driver. 🙂
My husband calls these ones dangerous.
Because they just taste like fruit punch and you don’t really taste the booze.
So you have quite a few of them.
And the next thing you know you can’t feel your teeth.
Then maybe you will go online and order my cookbook…or 8 of my cookbooks. 😀
