Orange Jell-O Shot Slices

You know how sometimes restaurants garnish breakfast plates with orange slices? Well, if I had a restaurant, I would garnish all plates with orange jello shot slices. I could list all the reasons why these are awesome, but I'm pretty sure it's obvious.

4 Oranges (or grapefruits or limes or lemons...but oranges are the easiest to work with)
1 cup liquor of choice (you could go with the standard vodka, or get creative)
2 packs orange jello
hot water

cut oranges in half so you can see the cross section. Being careful not to puncture the rind, cut around the edge with a knife and scoop out with a spoon. You can save the innards for something else, but they aren't needed for this project. Situate orange halves in a casserole dish or something else they can't tip over in. Make room in your refrigerator for casserole dish.

Dissolve jello in 1 1/2 cups boiling water. Cool to lukewarm then add liquor. Pour liquor mixture into oranges, filling to top. Refrigerate until completely firm. Cut oranges into wedges and serve.
