Jellinator Tequila Jello Shots Recipe:

  • 1 cup boiling water or juice*
  • 1 small box jello (3 oz.)
  • ½ cup tequila
  • ½ cup triple sec

Dissolve jello in 1 cup of boiling water. Remove from heat. Add the tequila and liqueur. Pour jello mixture in to your Jellinator and fill your shot cups. Refrigerate until set (approximately 3-4 hours). After a few of these, you’ll be saying, “Hasta la vista, baby!”

*Use only CANNED pineapple, kiwi, guava, or papaya juice, as the bromelain enzyme in the fresh fruit or juice will prevent your jello shots from jelling. And that, my friends, would be tragic.


They don’t disappoint! And find even more recipes, including Tequila Sunrise Jello Shots, in our Top 100 Jello Shot Recipes booklet. It’s a must-have behind any bar.

And here is the important part: the Jellinator will keep you from spilling and wasting the booze (the secret ingredient, shhhh!).
