Can you Get Drunk on Jello Shots

When you think of shots, it’s hard not to imagine a cooler full of them of different flavors.

A Jello Shot is just enough alcohol for your average party goer to try and drink them like they’re water bottles at summer BBQs or school events.

These little bad boys hold considerably less than traditional shot glasses so even if someone tells ya otherwise chances are he/she could’ve put something else in there instead…

How Much Alcohol Do you Put in a Jello Shot

If you are using a small box of gelatin, the normal amount is equal to the amount of water you are using.

So, if you are using one cup of boiling water, you will use one cup of alcohol. If it’s a big box of gelatin and you are using 1 1/2 cups of boiling water, then you would use 1 1/2 cups of alcohol.

Does it Have to Be Vodka

Absolutely not! As you can see in this recipe, we are using Rumchata. I have also used Moonshine, Rum, Tequila, and even Sangria.

Whatever flavor you are looking to make, use that flavor alcohol.

Pudding Shot Variations

For a mudslide jello shot, I use Bailey’s Irish Cream and Triple Sec. That would be a mix of both so half Bailey’s and half Triple Sec. (recipe coming soon!)

A Blue Hawaiian Jello shot uses 1/2 Blue Curacao and 1/2 Coconut Rum with Pineapple Coconut V8 Splash in place of the water. (recipe coming soon!)

How to Make Creamsicle Shots

Place 2 scoops (using a standard ice cream scoop) of orange Sherbet in a bowl and set aside to melt.

Heat 1 cup of water to boiling.

Add orange gelatin and stir to dissolve.

Set aside and cool for 15 minutes.

Add one cup of Rum Chata to melted Sherbet and stir.

Next, pour gelatin into sherbet mixture and stir.

Fill 4-ounce plastic souffle cups, cover, and place in the freezer for 2 hours.

Remove from freezer and place in the refrigerator for I hour before serving.
