Summer Jello Shot Recipes

Summer! A time to relax by the pool, go camping with the family, cut the grass…and enjoy a cold one. But what if you aren’t a fan of beer? Or wine? How about a cool and interesting cocktail in the form of…jello! You don’t even need to drink…just eat and enjoy this one.

There are hundreds of types of jello shots you can make. I’ll list the favorite ones from my collection here. If you like, I can add a second round later in the summer if you like these.

A few tips before you try jello shots:

– Make a small batch to see if you like them first. Some people have a problem with texture and don’t enjoy their liquor coming from a “slimy concoction”.

– Buy the plastic cups with the lids. The two ounce size is perfect, but the one ounce or 3 ounce plastic cups will work as well.

– Check your recipe before you start to make sure you have the correct and right amount of liquor and jello flavor needed.

– Once you decide you like jello shots, it is easy to make them in large batches at one time.

Pineapple Jello Shots

In a large dish, pour jello mix and 1 1/4 cup of boiling water together. Stir until jello is dissolved. Add 3/4 c of rum. Mix well and then pour in to plastic cups. Cover with lids and store in the refrigerator until serving.

Cherry Jello Shots

Michigan Cherry DeKuyper Schnapps

In a large bowl, combine jello and 1 1/4 cups of boiling water. Stir until dissolved and then add 3/4 c schnapps. Mix well and pour in to plastic cups with lids. Refrigerate.

Melon Jello Shots

Melon Fusion flavored jello


melon liqueur

In a bowl, combine jello and 1 1/4 cups of boiling water. Once the jello is dissolved, add 3/4 cup of liqueur. Stir well and pour in to plastic cups. Refrigerate.

Once the shots have firmed up, they can be stored in individual bags so the flavors do not get mixed up. They can be thrown in to a cooler to take on a trip or wherever you need to go. Keep cool or they turn runny.
