jello shot recipesI truly have the best job in the world. Tablespoon asked me to create a collection of Jello Shot Recipes, and I was thrilled to oblige. I really had a lot of fun creating these recipes. I thought about what I like to drink, and what flavor combinations that I enjoy, and I got to create jello shots out of them. Once I figured out the formula, I realized that I could make any combination that I wanted to. Truly, the possibilities are endless.

One of the things that I discovered when developing these recipes was that they were very easy to dress up. Gone are the days when jello shots are just for college students. These will be gracing my summer parties this year, and I feel that they will be well received. Add sanding sugars, toasted coconut, and even whipped cream just make them that much more fun. I also loved the idea of using citrus rinds as the container for the jello shot. They are gorgeous to look at as well as drink. Drink? Eat? Slurp? I am not sure the correct noun to use, I just know that these are all about fun.

The day after I made them, I needed to photograph them, and make sure that they were delicious. If some of these shots are a little blurry, well, I apologize.  They were in fact delicious. And maybe just a little potent. Even though they look benign, these pack a punch. It does equal out to about a shot per jello shot. Proceed with caution.

  1. Thank you for this awesome jelloshot compilation post…it takes jello shots to a more refined level than how I used to do mine, i.e. in a frat house at 3am :)

  2. Love these all! Esp the presentation of the pink lemonade ones!

  3. I haven’t done a jello shot in years, but I have a feeling they will be making an appearance at my next soirée now that you’ve sparked an interest in the “grown up” version. Thanks!

  4. I LOVE this! Im so glad that I stumbled upon your blog. The flavours are so fun and colourful. Yum!

  5. These are beautiful.
    If I didn’t have an aversion to food that wiggles (in particular, Jello) I could imagine how good these would be.

    These look awesome! I love the pink lemonade idea. I make the margarita ones for parties all the time. I usually bring a tray of limoncello ( in lemon wedges) margarita and creamsicle (in oranges) they are always a hit!

    They’re adorable! How fun to make for kids (sans liquor of course). The lemon one is awesome.

    I’m too old to have encountered jello shots in college, tho I do have fond memories of “fraternity party punch.” Whew! These look so pretty and will be perfect for a summer party. Thank you, Bree. I love your recipes!

    Great idea!!! Can’t wait to make them this summer :) Quick question what does 2 envelopes plain gelatin measure out to be? Thanks!

    OMG! I made the ones in the lemons on Saturday and they were a HUGE hit and definite conversation starter! I used raspberry lemonade and raspberry vodka, so they weren’t as pink, but they were DELICIOUS!!! Balancing them from the counter into the fridge to set wasn’t the easiest, but I will make these over and over again – perhaps not every time in the lemons, but that was the coolest part of it!

  16. Amanda says:

    Awesome! Thinking of making the ones with sanding sugar tonight. However, how should I instruct the guests to eat them???

  17. Lauren says:
