How to Make Delicious Jello Shots!!

Jello Shots for Any Real Estate PartyI remember the 1st time I tried a jello shot. It was on Halloween about 15 years ago somewhere in Hollywood. I remember this night because we decided to drive from the west side of Los Angeles through Hollywood.
Only problem was that they shut down the streets for the yearly Hollywood Halloween festival or whatever they do there. It took us 2 hours to drive 3 miles or so.

When we finally arrived at the party I was over it and wanted to leave but my friends didn’t, so I sat at on a stool at the table FULL of Jello Shots. I had never seen or heard of them. Needless to say, we became good friends that night. Ever since then, I’m the 1st to raise my hand when someone offers some Jello Shots.

So hear it is. I searched throughout and found the best Jello Shot recipes around. Take a look, pick your favorite and enjoy. Jello Shots are a fun, I’ll call it beverage, to bring out when you have friends over for drinks, hosting a party or watching the game.

 Here’s What You’ll Need

  • Jello Shot Cups – either paper or plastic will do but plastic is easier to use. Shot cups are the disposable shot cups you can find at Smart and Final or any Supermarket.
  • Jello mix – Depending on the recipe and the flavor you like will be what type to use. Each batch will make around 20 Jello Shots.
  • Booze – the classic Jello Shot uses Vodka but depending on the recipe you’ll use other alcohol. You can use any quality of alcohol but the super cheap stuff will be noticeable in taste.
  • Water – optional

Let’s Make Some Jello (Ingredients)

Here’s the recipe for the Classic Jello Shot:

Classic Jello Shot

  • 1 Cup boiling water
  • ½ Cup vodka
  • ½ Cup Schnapps (you pick the flavor) or 1/2 cup more of Vodka if if you don’t have Schnapps laying around.
  • 1 Small box jello (3 oz.) – Choose whichever flavor you like. Most people like Cherry, Strawberry, Lime and Orange.
  • Place the shot cups on a tray and fill each shot cup.
  • Refrigerate about 2 hours.
  • Enjoy with friends!!

The following recipes follow the same recipe but you substitute the booze and jello flavor.
