Jello Shots

Who doesn't love Jello Shots? They are so easy and you can make so many flavor combinations. Today for my dad's party I made Raspberry/Banana and Blue Raspberry/Coconut.

1 large package of Jello Gelatin
2 Cups Hot Water
1 Cup Cold Water
1 Cup Vodka or Rum

Mix the Jello with the hot water and stir until dissolved. Add in the cup of cold water first and stir, then add in the alcohol. Fill Dixie or disposable shot glasses and refrigerate for at least an hour. You don't want to add more than a cup of alcohol because the ratio of the water to alcohol is the most alcohol you can add without risking it not setting. No one wants liquid Jello Shots.

Some of my favorite flavor combinations.
Melon Fusion Jello/Smirnoff Watermelon Vodka
Blue Raspberry Jello/Jack's Coconut Rum
Strawberry Jello/Jack's Banana Rum
Black Cherry Jello/Smirnoff Cherry Vodka
Strawberry Kiwi Jello/Smirnoff Passion Fruit Vodka
Orange Jello/Pineapple and Coconut Rum
Orange Jello/Pinnacle Whipped Cream Vodka


  1. Do you have to use water? I've heard rumors of doubling up on the alcohol and it works. True or Lies?

  2. I used two cups alcohol once instead of one and one and it didn't work.
