For easy Jell-O shots, stir 1 cup boiling water and 3 ounces of any flavor of Jell-O until it is dissolved, then stir in a mix of 4 ounces vodka and 1/2 cup cold water. Pour the mixture into shot glasses, molds or a baking pan, and refrigerate until set.Continue Reading
The best vessels to pour the mixture into are plastic shot glasses, as it is easier to squeeze the glass to get the Jell-O shot out. Make sure that the alcohol and water mixture is refrigerated until it is added to the Jell-O mixture. The Jell-O shots should be refrigerated for at least two hours, but overnight yields the best results. There are variations on the alcohol and flavorings used in Jell-O shots. A Blue Hawaiian uses blueberry Jell-O, 3 ounces coconut rum, 2 ounces blue Curacao, 1 ounce pineapple juice and 1/4 cup cold water.
There are variations on the presentation of Jell-O shots, including serving the Jell-O in orange slices. Layered Jell-O shots are made by using three different colors of Jell-O. Use the traditional Jell-O shot recipe cut in half for one package of the Jell-O, and fill the cups 1/3 of the way with the finished mixture. Allow the Jell-O to set, then repeat with the second and third colors of Jell-O, making sure each color sets before adding the next.Learn more about Desserts
