  • 6 ounces water
  • 1 (3oz.) box Berry Blue Jell-O
  • 3 ounces White Rum
  • 4 ounces Peach Schnapps
  • 3 ounces Triple Sec


  • Bring water to a low boil in a pot.
  • Add the Jell-O mix to a large heat-proof bowl and whisk in the boiling water until the powder has completely dissolved.
  • Add in the alcohol and transfer into 2oz. sized plastic cups arranged on a baking sheet using a measuring cup or mini baster.
  • Place the baking sheet loaded with jello shots in the refrigerator and allow them to set for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Once set, enjoy immediately or cover with lids and store in the refrigerator.



  • Final Amount Varies - The amount of shots recipe makes will vary based on the size of the cup you use and how full you fill it.
  • Skip The Molds - In my experience, fun shaped silicone molds aren't the best and you usually have to use cooking spray with them for jello shots which makes them kind of gross.
  • Don't Overfill - If you're not planning on serving these right after they set and are storing them in the fridge for a few days, make sure to leave room at the top for the lid.
  • Mini Baster - This is actually the cleanest and easiest way to fill up your shot glasses. I love this mini baster!
  • Measuring Cup - I have found that a small measuring cup also works great for distributing the shots into the cups. I really like this cup because it has a nice spout for easy, no mess pouring.
  • Cookie Sheet - The easiest way to transport from the counter to the refrigerator after filling is by arranging the cups on a cookie sheet.
