Note:

• This uses green apple gelatin which can be difficult to find. Another choice is lime gelatin or melon fusion gelatin, and swap out the apple schnapps for more rum (or Midori!)

• If you don’t have green apple schnapps in the house, Crown Royal apple is a nice substitute.

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.
