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

• 1 small box of Flavored Gelatin (there are others with unflavored Gelatin, but this is the basics)
• 1 cup water, boiling
• 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 combined with the flavored gelatin are what makes the tasty jello shot varieties.

Hubby and I attended party last weekend at my brother’s house. I volunteered to bring gelatin shots. I made 6 different varieties! Here is the tower with some of the gelatin shots (there were 80 shots in all):

Some of the recipes were better received than others. This Margarita Jello Shot recipe was a major hit!! It tastes just like a Margarita, even without the salt. Salting wasn’t really possible with the plastic souffle cups that we used for transportation.

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.

Last Saturday was EXTREMELY hot here… like 95°. We kept the jello shots on ice, but after the ice melted, they did un-gel a bit. We hurried a bunch of to the refrigerator, and they reset just fine.

I took 4 of the Margarita shots home, and they lasted for a number of days in the refrigerator.
