Servings: 8 shots
- 6 ounces water
- 1 (3oz.) box Berry Blue Jell-O

Bring water to a low boil in a pot.

With Jello Base Recipe:
- 3oz. box of Jell-O
- 1 cup of hot liquid
- 1 cup of cold water or other liquid
From Scratch Base Recipe:
- Add Jell-O to a medium heat-safe mixing bowl.
- Heat the water in a pot until just barely boiling, remove and pour the cup of boiling water into the bowl. Whisk until the Jello powder has completely dissolved.
- Add vodka or another alcohol of your choice.
- Distribute into jello shot cups and chill on a baking sheet in the refrigerator for 1.5 to 2 hours.
- Whisk together gelatin and 1/4 cup of either alcohol or water in a large heat-safe mixing bowl and let sit so the gelatin can bloom.
- Heat 1 cup of liquid in a pot until just barely simmering, remove and pour into the bowl with the gelatin mix and whisk until combined.
- Add in the remaining liquid and pour the mixture into plastic cups on a baking sheet.
- Place jello shots in the refrigerator to set for 1.5 to 3 hours.
- 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.
- Shelf Life - They should be consumed within 1 week of being made.
