Jell-O Shots

Hey, it's Mardi Gras time!  There is no better way to make friends on the parade route, then to pull out some Jell-O shots! 
Who's ready for a shot?
  • 6 oz. Jell-O (pick your flavor)
  • 2 C. boiling water
  • ½ C. cool water
  • 1 ½ C. vodka or rum
  1. In a large bowl with a spout, pour the boiling water over the Jell-O
  2. Stir for about 2 minutes until the Jell-O is fully dissolved
  3. Add the cool water, then the vodka or rum
  4. Line a cookie sheet with paper towels and 33 cups
  5. Pour the Jell-O into the cups and refrigerate overnight
 Tips and Tricks:
  • I get the Solo brand 1 ½ oz. plastic cups with the plastic cap.   I get them at Party City.
  • Don’t try to cap the cups until after they set.  I have made a big mess trying to cap them while they are still warm.


  1. I think this photo should be your profile picture. Love it!

  2. flavored soda instead of plain water works really well for flavor

  3. 33, if you used the 1 1/2 oz cups. 22 if you use the 2 oz. cups.
