Blue and Yellow College Football Jello Shots

It may be too early for pumpkin spice lattes but football season has officially arrived and after talking to a few people I realized that my jello shot portfolio is lacking in the sports department.

I was worried about starting my new football jello shot series with Michigan. I’m an Ohio State fan… This is craziness, I know. Classic rivalry and my grandpa is going to kill me.

I’m so sorry grandpa, but the flavor combo was just too good to pass up.

My co-worker Kim told me about a drink she makes called a “Wolverine” made with blueberry Smirnoff and lemonade and I had to try it.

So maybe the “M” Stands for Michelle. Or maybe you can make these if you are a West Virginia Mountaineers fan with a W and V shape, or for the UCLA Bruins. There are a lot of blue and yellow football teams out there right?

The important part of this post is this; if you are having a football party these are easy to make and you can make them in large batches. Two cups of blueberry vodka will get you about 50 shots or more, depending on the size of the square bites.

What team should I do next? I’m taking requests!

P.S. The blue and yellow combo has a tendency to look green when you view it overhead. I am working on an option to get a truer blue color when using with yellow! Stay tuned.

Blue and Yellow College Football Jello Shots

Yield: 50 or more shots

Cook Time: 60-90 mins

Ingredients:

  • 3oz. box blue jello
  • 3oz. box yellow jello
  • 2 envelops Knox gelatin
  • 2 cups blueberry flavored vodka
  • 2 cups lemonade
  • 9x13 inch pan

Directions:

Step 1: Pour 1 cup lemonade into a medium sized sauce pan. Add your box of yellow jello and mix to combine. Next sprinkle your envelop of Knox. Let it sit for a minute to activate the gelatin. Turn on medium heat and mix to combine again. Bring to a light simmer then remove from heat and add 1 cup blueberry vodka.

Step 2:
Pour your lemon vodka jello into a lightly greased 9x13 inch pan. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until set but still sticky not completely firm. (While your lemon jello is setting get started on the next step)

Step 3:
 Pour 1 cup lemonade into a medium sized sauce pan. Add your box of blue jello and mix to combine. Next sprinkle your envelop of Knox. Let it sit for a minute to activate the gelatin. Turn on medium heat and mix to combine again. Bring to a light simmer then remove from heat and add 1 cups blueberry vodka. (Set aside until your yellow layer is ready)

Step 4
: Make sure your yellow layer is set but still sticky not completely firm and then pour the blue layer on top. Refrigerate for a couple hours or until completely firm.

Step 5: Run a thin rubber spatula or a butter knife along the edge of your 9x13 inch pan to loosen the jello. Don't try to flip out the whole pan of jello, it will break. Slice the jello in strips and then carefully place your hand under each strip and lift it out carefully. Use a sharp knife to cut uniform cubes out of the strips. Keep cold until serving!
