Ingredients
  1. 2/3 cup prepared lemonade (strained to remove solids)
  2. 2/3 cup lemon lime soda
  3. 3 envelopes Knox gelatin (increase to 3 if using molds)
  4. 2/3 cup blueberry vodka (we used Stoli)
  5. 15 fresh blueberries
  6. Food coloring, in desired “eye” colors
Instructions
  1. First, prepare a half hemisphere silicon mold with a light application of cooking spray. (Click here for the mold we used!) Wipe the mold cavities out with a clean paper towel. This method will leave just the slightest residue, which will help unmold the gelatin without affecting the taste or appearance. Place each mold on a cookie sheet or cooling rack to provide a stable surface for handling.
  2. Combine the lemonade and soda in a small saucepan and sprinkle with the gelatin. Allow the gelatin to soak for a minute or two. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is dissolved, about 5 minutes. (Mixture may be a bit foamy, but this will diminish.) Remove from the heat and stir in the vodka.
  3. Pour 1/2 cup of the gelatin mixture a bowl, and tint as desired with the food coloring - this will form the “irises” of the eyeball jelly shots. Add 1 teaspoon of the tinted mixture into each mold cavity, and drop a blueberry into each. Meanwhile, set the un-tinted gelatin aside, covered.
  4. Refrigerate until the tinted gelatin is set, but slightly sticky to the touch. Remove the mold from the refrigerator. Top off the molds with the untinted gelatin. Return the mold to the refrigerator and chill until the eyeballs are fully set, several hours or overnight.
  5. To serve, unmold, loosen the edges by pulling away from the side of the mold, and pop each jelly shot out.
Notes
  1. Use a mold like this one - Silikomart Silicone Bakeware Half-Sphere .68 Oz, 1.57" Dia. x .79" Deep, 15 Cavities
