When it comes to cocktails, it doesn't get much easier than Jell-O shots. In their most simple form, they are only three ingredients: jell-o powder, hot water, and alcohol. Below, we'll walk you through the process so your shots are the best they can be!
Gather Your Ingredients & Supplies
To make your shots you will need: a measuring cup, a whisk, small plastic (or glass) cups, and something to boil water with. For ingredients, all you need is your favorite type of Jell-O, water, and the alcohol of your choice.
Step 1: Dissolve Jell-O
Fill your measuring cup with 1 cup of boiling water, then add the Jell-O powder. Whisk together until jell-o powder has completely dissolved into water.
Step 2: Add Your Alcohol
One of the biggest mistakes people make when making jell-o shots is adding the boiling water and alcohol together over heat. You want to make sure your jell-o mixture is cool enough that the alcohol doesn't burn off when it's added. Adding alcohol off-heat into a large measuring glass not only protects the alcohol, you can also measure it on the spot! You can add whatever alcohol you like best.

Step 3: Pour Into Cups
Once you've whisked in the alcohol, all that's left is pouring them into shot glasses! Both plastic or glass shot glasses work, though we don't know anyone with a shot glass collection big enough to accommodate a whole batch! You could also go the unconventional route and serve your shots in fruit like these pink lemonade jell-o shots, or get really crazy and serve them in PICKLES like our famous pickleback jell-o shots. Place your shots in the refrigerator to firm up for 3 to 4 hours and serve!
