  • 1 large (6oz.) box strawberry Jello powder
  • 1 small (3oz.) box lemon Jello powder

  1. In a large heat resistant pitcher or mixing bowl combine the boiling water, strawberry Jello powder and lemon Jello powder. Stir until all of the powder is completely dissolved.
  2. Allow the mixture to cool down for about 20 minutes or so (if you add the rum when the mixture is still too hot, some of the alcohol may evaporate).
  3. Add the rum, and stir well.
  4. Pour your Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shot mixture into jello shot containers (see first quick tip below).
  5. Refrigerate the shots for about 4 hours until the Jello sets up and is firm (see second quick tip below).
  6. Serve. If desired, garnish each Jello shot with a slice of fresh strawberry.

I made some jello shots for my super bowl party last night, and served them in shot glasses. They were good and everyone seemed to love them, but the jello would sometimes stick to the glass, and people were having a hard time getting the jello shots out of the shot glass. Did I leave them in the fridge too long or something?

Barkley, jello tends to stick to glass, so next time I would try serving them in something else such as small paper or plastic cups. There are also some neat products on the market such as EZ Release Jello Shot Cups, and Jello Injector Oral Syringes. For a list of recommended jello shot containers check out: If you still want to stick with the shot glasses, maybe try spraying your glasses with a little non-stick cooking spray before you pour the jello shots into them. I hope this will help, Good Luck! profile image 6 years ago from Somewhere on the highway....

For jello shots that stick in their container, set out some toothpicks. Guests can loosen the shot by running the toothpick around inside the container - it helps somewhat.

Yes Sherry, toothpicks are a great idea! Also small plastic utensils are also ideal. However, I would prefer jello shots that easily slide out (allowing the consumer to actually do a shot), and I think for that purpose non-stick cooking spray may be the way to go.

@ Everyone having issues with the "jello sticking to glass" Run hot water into the glass before pouring the jello in. Just make sure the glasses are HOT then put the jello mix in it
