Jell-O Shots

Melissa Williamson


My family and friends loves it and I make them for New Year's Eve and occasions and holidays and have a party but not for the children and it is for adults only. It is so easy to make it and they are so good and tasty.

How to Make Jell-O Shots


  1. Make the Jello:
    Spray cups with Pam cooking spray.
    For each cup of jello you will need 1 cup of boiling water. Empty the contents of the jello packet into a large bowl. Then pour the boiling water over the jello.

    Stir together the water and the jello for about two minutes until it is completely dissolved.

    Add the Alcohol:
    The jello recipe calls for 1 cup of cold water. Instead, we are going to use 1/4 cup of water and 3/4 cups of alcohol. Add these to the jello, and stir them in.

    Refrigerate the Jello:
    Now, use a ladle to transfer the jello into the plastic cups. Place these in the refrigerator for at least four hours until the jello sets.
  2. Lime flavor and tequila makes margarita shots.

    Strawberry flavor and rum makes strawberry daiquiri shots.

    Pineapple flavor and coconut rum makes pina colada shots.

    Orange flavor and vodka makes screwdriver shots.

    Blue berry flavor and island blue pucker makes blue hawaii shots.

    Grape flavor and vodka makes grape crush shots.
