Beat The Heat With Fun Jello Shots

Updated on August 3, 2016

Maybe you have tried it before, maybe not. The jello shots are a super fun way to drink shots. Or should I say eat them? They are different, refreshing, delicious and a good choice to basically any occasion. The best part is that practically any shot can turn into a jello shot. The possibilities are endless! So, if you are hosting a party, this is the perfect way to impress everybody. Follow this simple steps to make your yummy delicious jello shots.

This is the easy way

This is a very simple and easy way to make a lot of jello shots at once. Perfect when you are expecting a large crew of thirsty people.

  • Add one large (6 ounces) package of Jello of your favorite flavor to two cups of boiling water.
  • Move to dissolve completely.
  • Add 6 ounces of cold water and 10 ounces of vodka.
  • Finally pour into plastic shots glasses and refrigerate for a few hours before the party.

Easy Right?

This is the creative way

If you are not afraid to be creative, use your imagination to create the most delicious and original jello shots. For example, you can combine different jello flavors in one shot. Or maybe you can substitute vodka for any other liquor. Some awesome liquor choices to start are Midori®, Blue Curacao® or Passoa®. They are sweet and perfect for the summer season! If you prefer to use creamy flavors like Baily’s® or Kahlua® use the non flavor gelatin. This way you don't add a fruity flavor to it.

Remember always to adjust the amount of cold water and liquor depending on the alcohol volume. The more alcohol volume, less liquor and more cold water you are going to add. Use the table below as guide.

Alcohol Volume
Liquor Quantity 
 Cold Water Quantity
30-50 %
13 ounces 
3 ounces 
80-100 %
 10 ounces
6 ounces 
150-200 %
6 ounces 
10 ounces
