For many of us, those week-long binges down in Panama City Beach and Cancun are as much a distant memory as those bikini bodies we used to rock. Instead of body shots and all night binges, our days are filled with carpools, 9-5ers and meal prep. However, just because you aren't 19 anymore doesn't mean you still can't indulge in a boozy cocktail. Try one of these three super strong libations and let loose, if only for an evening!

If a long day on the beach is out of your reach, don't fret. Close your eyes and sip one of these fruity, boozy cocktails and let your mind take you back to those beer-filled, crazy days of your youth.

Watermelon lime Jell-O shots

Watermelon lime jello shots

Yields 40 shots

What's more Spring Break than Jell-O shots? These gorgeous Jell-O shots by That's So Michelle served in lime peels are much fancier than the ones you'd chug from a plastic cup.

Ingredients: 

  • 10 limes
  • One box watermelon Jell-O
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1 cup boiling water

Directions: 

  1. Cut limes in halves and hollow out the peel. The trick is to take a paring knife and score around the insides carefully to loosen the citrus. Then spoon it out saving the fruit.
  2. Boil one cup of water and add it to Jell-O mix in a large bowl, stirring until it dissolves. Gradually add one cup of vodka and stir.
  3. Pour mixture into a cup with a spout and pour Jell-O mixture into the limes (make sure they are standing upright). Refrigerated over night and then cut the halfs into quarters and enjoy!
