Jello Shots Recipes

Jello shots have been a party favorite for generations. A properly assembled batch of jello shots can take an ordinary party to legendary status. Regardless of the age of your party goers, everyone loves a jello shot.

Tips on How to make Jello Shots

  1. Proper Booze to jello ratio. Most people the first time they make jello shots put way too much alcohol and the jello shots are either not edible, or they are liquid. Follow the directions below, and if you are going to error on one side or the other, error on too little alcohol, instead of too much.
  2. Container - Use paper cups for the jello shot mold, these are easier to turn inside out to get the jello out. Little Dixie cups are a great cheap option.
  3. Container - If you use plastic or glass, one tip to help everyone get the jello out is to warm the glasses for a minute before the shot, this loosens the jello from the edge.
  4. Another idea is to spray the inside of the container with a very thin coating of Pam, this allows the shots to slip out easier.
  5. Quantity - Make sure the jello shots are actually shots and now huge mouth fulls. The best thing to do is get a 1.5 ounce shot glass, use it as the guide for how much to put in each jello shot mold.
  6. Flavors - do not use a jello that will change party goers tongues blue. If the cops show up, or if you have to speak to someone, a blue tongue is a dead giveaway. Safe flavors are cherry, strawberry, watermelon, etc. The one exception is if you are having a themed party, for example Christmas red and green jello, or 4th of July red and blue jello.
  7. Jello Jigglers - This stronger type of jello allows you to generate fun shapes that can be picked up and eaten. This is a fun change is for the experienced jello shot connoisseur. Do not try this with your first batch.
