Basic Jello Shots

How to make Jello Shots:

Are you ready to learn the basic procedures for making jello shots? Well, folks at know a bit more beyond the basics. So now, here are all the secrets to the perfect jello shooters recipe, every time; and the answers to all your burning jello shot questions…

After you dissolve the jello in 1 cup of boiling water, you are going to add 1 cup booze. The booze is the substitution for the 1 cup cold water per the jello package directions. However, the secret is to use a half cup of hard liquor and a half cup of flavored liqueur. This will give a strong shot that doesn’t taste too strong. Jello shots should be yummy; not something to make you pucker, right?

Triple sec is a good choice for the liqueur as it mixes well with many jello flavors, and gives a sweet/tart finish. Peach schnapps will make any shot taste more like candy. We call this secret concoction of ours, “The Perfect Jello Shot Recipe.”

Jello Shots Recipes FAQ’s

How many shots am I making?

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. If traveling with your shots in a cooler, use cup with lids and place them in large zip-lock bags so that scary cooler water doesn’t get in.
