How to Make Jello Shots Drink Recipe

Jello shots, also called Jello Shooters, are wildly popular. They are easy to make. You simply combine your favorite jello flavors with your favorite alcoholic beverage.  Then, allow it to set in the refrigerator. It makes a sweet, enjoyable "drink".

In general, substitute 1/2 of the cold water in the jello recipe with the alcohol you have chosen to use. Popular liquors include rum, vodka and tequila. But, the choice is just about unlimited.  

Jello shooters are most popular as a summer time "cooler". You'll also find them served all year long, especially during holidays and events.

Remember: Jello shots contain alcohol and should be consumed wisely.

Basic Jello Shot Recipe Ingredients:

  • 3 oz. Jello (any flavor)
  • 6 oz. boiling water
  • 6 oz. vodka

Jello Shot Recipe Directions:

  1. Select the jello flavor you want to use.
  2. Follow the direction on the jello package for making the jello.
  3. In the final step, substitute 1/2 of the COLD water with the alcohol of your choice.
  4. Pour into shot glasses or containers.
  5. Place in the refrigerator to cool and gel.

Important: Do not add more alcohol than recommended above. Alcohol has a different (lower) freezing point than water. If you add too much alcohol, the jello will not gel.  With some combinations, you my need to use a little less alcohol. In general, liquor with a higher alcohol content, gels at a lower temperature. In this case, a little less alcohol is used.

Jello Shot Glasses and Containers:

Jello shots a most often served from disposable plastic shot glasses (we think this becomes a little pricey). These plastic cups with lids makes them portable.

If you are serving jello shooters at a party, or consuming them at home, you can use any kind of bowl or small glass. Or, you can mold it in a cake pan, and cut small cubes. Arrange the cubes on a plate, and you have an instant success.
