Note: you can play around with the liquor quantities provided it adds up to one cup. Th quantities listed above result is a more Bailey-ish Jello shot whereas you may prefer butterscotch or orange to be more pronounced.

Some suggested liquor quantities:

¼ cup Butterscotch Liqueur
½ cup Bailey’s Irish Cream
¼ cup Cointreau Liqueur

Or, try 1/3 of a cup of each liquor for a more orange-y taste.

Jello Shots are pretty easy to make. This is the basic recipe anyone can follow:

• 2 packets unflavored gelatin
• 1 cup water
• 1 cup of: vodka/rum/tequila/whiskey/schnapps/liqueurs

The 1 cup of some sort of spirits is the key. The different flavor combinations of alcoholic beverages are what makes the tasty jello shot varieties when using unflavored gelatin.

The souffle cups are 2oz, and a shot glass is 1oz, 1.5oz or 2oz normally, so you may get a different number of servings depending on the vessel you use to set the gelatin.

  1. Phyllis Dumdie says:

    Looks delicious. Thank you for posting this recipe. I will try them.

  2. How far in advance can these be prepared? I understand the whipped cream goes on just before serving. Can I make them 2 days ahead?

    • Char, I made these over 24 hours before I served them. Jello shots are pretty darned hardy, so as long as you keep them in your refrigerator, you should be good 2 days out.

      Ann

  3. Does it work to use vanilla pudding instead of gelatin?

    • Joey, I have not made it as a pudding shot. Hubby keeps asking me to, and I keep putting it off. If I do, I will report back. If you end up trying it as a pudding shot, please come back and let me know how it went,

      Thanks!

      Ann

      • JoAnn Burkhart says:

        I have made the switch to pudding shots about 7 years ago. I would really like to try this recipe with the vanilla pudding. Yummy.

    • There is vegan jello at whole foods

    • I don’t know about using 3 different liqueurs but I used a recipe with milk coconut pudding mix whip cream and rum chata mixed all together it was like 1/2 cup milk 8oz of whip cream 1 package of coconut pudding mix and 1 cup of rum chats so I imagine if you used the 3 and make a cup it would work

  4. Lorraine Putnam says:

    These sound marvelous. I’m going to have to try them. I’ve made the regular jello shots, but nothing fancy like these. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
    Cheers,
    Lorraine

  5. Can you substitute the butterscotch liqueur with something else?

    • Joanne if you substitute more Baileys, it will taste like a Baileys Shot. If you use more orange liqueur, it is going to taste orange-y. Maybe Caramel Schnapps? Vanilla Vodka perhapse? Or Whipped Cream Vodka? Something that is going to stay with the cookie flavoring.

      Caveat: I have not tried any of those suggestions.

      Ann

      • I have made and tried several different types of jello shots and they have all come out great! I am going to give this recipe a try very soon. To respond to Joanne, above, there is a sugar cookie vodka, if you can find it in your area, that would probably work very well! 🙂 I know around here the sugar cookie vodka is a little difficult to find, but that is one of my favorite flavored vodkas! It’s like drinking a cookie! 🙂

      • Thank you

  6. Can you use grand mariner instead of the Cointreau liqueur?

  7. Ok how much is 5/8 of a cup exactly? Not a common measurement….

    • No, it isn’t. It is easiest to figure at 1/2 cup + 1/8th cup. That is why I suggest using one cup and filling it with the 3 liquor combo listed. That is the key Lisa – do not go over 1 cup on the liquors.

      Ann

  8. is this recipe easily doubled?

    • Tess the most important thing is to make sure you dissolve the gelatin. As long as that is done, there should not be any reason you couldn’t double the recipe (I have not done so with this one though).

      Ann

  9. Can the Jell-O shots be frozen?

  10. Claudia captor says:

    2 envelopes of Knox is too many, made them like rubber, going to try with 1 and see how it comes out

  11. Do you have to scoop the jello shots out with a spoon when you eat eat? Or is the container coated so it pops out?

    • Nida, when I brought these to a blogger meet-up we topped them with whipped cream, we actually ate them with a spoon. When I brought them to a party not topped with whipped cream, people just popped them into their mouth.

      Ann

  12. Has anyone made these? Wondering about the servings…. I have seen other recipes that say it only makes 5 servings.

    • Cindy, there is 16 ounces of liquid in this recipe. I use 2-ounce souffle cups that are not filled to the top, and get 10 – 12 servings. If you only got five servings, those shots would be 3oz each (filled to the top). So basically 3 shot glasses in one jello shot.

      Ann

  13. I bet this would be good. I might have to try these.

  14. Hi Ann, bought all of the supplies and booze. Can’t wait to make them for a party we are going to. I am a bit concerned about what others said about too much gelatine making them rubbery and chewy. You are the creator of these yummy looking shots. What are your thoughts? Shall I follow your recipe above. Thank you. Happy Holidays.

    • Liz, I can see where they think they are chewier… but jello shots generally are a more ruberized version of jello. I gave these out to approximately 40+ people (two different functions), and no one complained about the chewy. One place (a party) just popped them like a jello shot (think back to when you were 21) and at another spot, they used a spoon (a blogger meet-up).

      I am extremely concerned about using only 1 packet of gelatin with the 2 cups of liquid. I’d worry it would not set (and unfortunately no one has reported back whether it did set with such a reduction in gelatin). My guess (just a guess, as I have not tried it) is to keep these proportions, but add another 1/2 cup of liquid – be it liquor or the water step. I bet that would make them less chewy, and they’d still hold fast.

      If you DO change the liquid (or gelatin) proportions, could you please report back so people would have some idea how that would work out? I’d really appreciate it.

      Good luck!
      Ann

  15. Ok……I made these yesterday for a Christmas Party and I did 1 1/2 packets of gelatin instead of 2. They set fine. They weren’t rubbery at all but were VERY thick and solid. I would even maybe lower the gelatin a little more next time. Everyone loved them but I wonder if they would be even better with 1-1 1/4 packets
    If you are making these and don’t have time to experiment, go with the 1 1/2.
    I will post if I make them with even less gelatin.

  16. I just made these for a holiday bus tour. They came out very thick. Not sure they are going to be easy to eat without a spoon especially with the whipped cream. Next time I would definitely use less gelatin. Also even out the liquor amounts. It tastes like a Bailey’s shot.

    • Hey Barb,

      Cindy’s comment (above yours) said she used 1 1/2 envelopes of knox gelatin and they were not chewy, but did thicken and hold. You may want to try that.
