Easy Jello Shot Recipe/Tutorial

In 2 days, several of our roommates and friends from college will be visiting for our annual tubing trip down the river. This is an event I look forward to ALL YEAR LONG. Among the many things that I must do to prepare for the "shenanigans," making JELLO SHOTS is at the top of the most important list. I do not remember where I first learned this recipe, but I've known it by heart since I was 21 (ok, maybe earlier..):

What you will need:

*This is for ONE batch, which makes about 15 jello shots. Please feel free to double, or tripe, or quadrouple your batches!

1 package of Jello (whatever flavor you want)
1 Cup of liquor (whatever kind you want, make sure it will go well with your Jello flavor)
15-20 tiny plastic shot cups (I get them from my local GFS store)
15-20 tiny plastic shot cup lids (also from GFS)
1 permanent marker 

Step 1: Bring 1 Cup of water to a boil in a sauce pan. Meanwhile, line up your tiny plastic shot cups on the counter. 

Step 2: Once the water comes to a boil, add the package of Jello (I used Berry Blue this time). Stir until completely dissolved.

Step 3: Pour the liquor into a glass measuring cup with a spout (I used raspberry vodka this time). Now, pour your Jello & water mixture into the liquor.

Step 4: Slowly pour your jello shot mixture into the tiny plastic shot cups.

Step 5: top your cups with lids. At this time, I like to label the lids by liquor (people like to know what they are getting into). For example "V" for vodka. Then, put the shots into the fridge for at least 4 hours.

What is everyone else doing this upcoming weekend?

  1. PERFECT timing. I'm currently visiting a girlfriend on the East Coast and she was mentioning we should get a little sh*tfaced tonight. We immediately thought "jello shots!" Of course, neither of us have ever made them. And now, I see this. It's like you are psychic.
