How to Make Jello Shots

From fancy birthday cake jello shooters to your basic jello shot cups, we have everything you could possibly need to know about making your own.

For the most basic, easiest, and fastest jello shots you’ll need the following ingredients. Note: this recipe will yield about a dozen shots depending on how full you fill your cups.

  • 1 box of premade flavored gelatin powder (jello)
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 1 cup of cold alcohol
  • 1-quart measuring cup with spout, or pitcher
  • Mini plastic cups

How to Make Jello Shots 

Put the jello powder in the bowl. Add 1 cup of boiling water and stir until all of the powder has completely dissolved.

Add 1 cup of cold alcohol and stir.

Pour into cups and chill in the fridge for two or more hours until set.

Leftover shots (is that even possible?) can be stored in the refrigerator and last about a week.

Variations of Jello Shots 

Once you’ve got the basics down, it’s time to get creative with flavors. Think seasonally, like pink lemonade for summer or apple cider for fall, or try out different color combinations like yourteam colors for game day, and never be afraid to garnish with gusto. There’s always the handy whipped cream (handmade or straight from a can is fine), sprinkles, edible glitter, fruit, or if you’re feeling real fancy, gold leaf.

And don’t feel confined to just shot cups. Use molds for fun shapes, or fill hollowed-out citrus peels and slice into fruit slices. Just make sure to spray any molds or containers you’ll be using with a thin layer of cooking spray. It’ll make dislodging the shots much easier.

If your shots are on the softer side, serve them up in pliable plastic cups or little shot glasses with something to dislodge the shot like a cocktail straw or mini spoon.  Firmer shots can be made in one large pan and sliced into bite-sized cubes.
