A great Halloween party jello shot, these Purple People Eater Jello Shots are easy to make and taste great!

Jello shots are very popular party “drinks”. Everywhere you turn someone has a Jello shot recipe. But, in a bit of irony, most “Jello” shot recipes are not made with “Jello” (Kraft) at all… they are made with unflavored gelatin, usually Knox (Unilever) or store brand.

While researching gelatin shots recipes, I spent some time on the Knox gelatin page, and the read is fascinating. It is the largest distributor of gelatin selling 60% for home and institutional usage, and 40% to industrial and manufacturing. Knox really took off after the owner died and his wife took over the company. If you have a few minutes, give it a read. I learned some things (the first gelcap in the 1920s!), and you may too.

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.

Purple People Eater Jello Shots Recipe


Notes:

• Make sure you add the food coloring after you have allowed the gelatin mixture to set up for 10 minutes (so it is not super-hot), but before you add the liquor. So many problems are avoided when you do it this way!
• The color order does not matter – these are green, purple, black. You can do black, green, purple or purple, black, green… whatever you like.
• When you fill the final 24 with black rum gelatin, make sure you fill all the cups at least a little bit and then go back and top them off. There is enough liquid to fill them all, but it works better for the final layer to do a little, and then top off.
• These are strong. The tequila really gives a kick. If you are not a tequila fan, use more apple or rum or substitute vodka.

This recipe originally called for green apple jello. Try finding it. I had no luck, so totally remade the recipe with flavors that are accessible to all.

The original recipe is:

• 1 box green apple jello + 1 cup green apple schnapps
• 1 box grape jello + 1 cup rum
• 1 box unflavored gelatin + 1 cup water

You could also use this combination:

• 1 box melon fusion jello + 1 cup Midori
• 1 box grape jello + 1 cup tequila
• 1 box clear jello + 1 cup vodka
