Fed Up With Your Party Shots? Try These 5 Jello Shot Recipes

Fed Up With Your Party Shots? Try These 5 Jello Shot Recipes

It’s very easy to get tired of your usual party shots, and some people prefer having jello shots over regular party shots. With the luck of having previous experience as a bartender, I can tell you that most people are into trying new flavors when they are looking to have fun. One way we can provide this is with jello shots!

Everyone loves jello, and if you combine it with your regular party shots, it’s a double win. Here are 5 different recipes to really make your shots the life of the party.

1. The Jolly Rancher Jello Shot:

    This was one of my personal favorites. Why? They taste good, move fast, and are very easy to make.

    My personal recipe for this jello shot is:

    • 1 3-oz package of Lime Jell-O
    • 8 oz boiling water
    • 8 oz Raspberry Vodka

    Combine the lime jello and boiling water, stir to dissolve the granules of jello, and let sit to for about ten minutes (this is so the hot water doesn’t affect the alcohol in the jello shots). Stir the raspberry vodka into the jello mixture and voila! After four hours in the fridge, or until the jello is set up, you have a tasty jello shot that you can bring to any party.

    There are a lot of different Jolly Rancher recipes on the internet, I would suggest trying some of them to see what you like.

    2. Watermelon Jello shots:

      These are super easy and really fun to make. If you are making them for large groups people in the summer, it’s really easy to make these in the watermelon rind, as shown in the video from BuzzFeed’s Tipsy Bartender. If you have a smaller party and would just like to use the 3-oz package, I have used lime rinds instead of watermelon rinds. This was a tip that I learned from a fellow bartender. They look great and work for smaller crowds.

      3. Blue Hawaiian Jello Shots:

        I found this recipe for Blue Hawaiian Jello Shots at Jellinator — this was the closest I found to my own version of Blue Hawaiian Jello Shots. The difference between theirs and mine is that I use blue jello instead of pineapple jello and pineapple juice instead of water. These are tasty and set up great. These shots also move fast, so if you find out that they’re going to be at the party, my suggestion would be to get there quickly. Either way you make them, they’re going to go quickly.

        4. Margarita Jello shots:

          Remember those lime rinds from the watermelon shots? They work great with these also. You cannot have a margarita without limes. Along with the unique flavors, there are many different ways to present them.

          If you are looking for a real margarita shot and want to take the time for it, I have to say that it’s worth the effort to make them from scratch. Homemade sweet and sour with tequila and knox jello and you have a party — just don’t forget the salt!

          If you’re looking for a quick jello shot, I would suggest following the link to Food Network. You can never go wrong with tequila… unless you’ve had too much and you have to crawl to the bathroom.

          5. Lemon Drop Jello Shots:

            recipe that I found on A Beautiful Mess by Emma Chapman looks very yummy. If you are doing a family party, this would be the way to go. Compliments are not far away. You have a quick get together and don’t have time to make lemonade? I’m not going to tell anyone that you picked up lemon jello and mixed it with vodka. That will stay between you, me, and the fly on the wall. You could even use lemonade instead of the water to add extra lemon to the recipe.

            There are so many different flavors of liquor that you can use for jello shots, whether you are using vodka, gin, tequila, or rum (or you could make a long island jello shot!). The key is to be sporadic, creative, and intelligent when making these jello shots. Are you having a black light party? Throw some tonic water in your jello shots to make them glow! You can use it in place of water and it will give your jello shots a fun buzz to liven them up even more.

            Don’t stop there, remember there are so many different ways to store jello shots. We used 1-oz syringes, if you do a search on the internet, you can find some cost effective ways to buy the containers for jello shots or you can get some little plastic cups from a party store. Use some creativity — maybe even some really cool ice cube trays will do the trick!

            Have a blast with these recipes, and please remember to eat these responsibly!
