Jello Shots Recipes FAQ’s:

How many shots am I making?

1 small box of jello yields about 15 jello shots (2 cups of liquid). 2 boxes (or 1 large 6 oz. box) yield 30 shots, which will fit nicely on a baking sheet to transport them easily to the refrigerator.

How much booze should I buy?

1 fifth of vodka, 1 fifth of liqueur, and 6 boxes of jello yield 90-100 shots.

How do I store my shots?

Always cover your shots before you chill them so they don’t get hard and gummy. If covered, the shots should keep for a month or so. A layer of plastic wrap is fine.

Can I use sugar-free jello?

Yes. ‘Nuf said.
