Jello shots have been a standard at parties for decades, and for good reason – they’re easy to make, portable, taste great, and super colorful displayed on a buffet table. And they’re versatile, using any type of jello flavor and liquor. Jello gelatin is mixed with other liquids, poured into cups, then chilled until firm.
Long gone are the days when jello shots were just a packet of jello and vodka, though. Today, there are all kinds of fun, delicious jello shot recipes. Below are just some of our favorites!
