This recipe makes up about 32 jello shots.
Firstly you need to gather the following ingredients.
A 6 oz pack of Jello (approximately 17 grams)
A quantity of jello cups or jello syringes
Some fruit segments (optional)
A little less than 3 cups of hot water (720mls)
About 1 cup of alcohol (usually Vodka or Rum) straight from the fridge
Make up your base mixture. Mix together some water and alcohol to make up 2 cups in volume – the ratio depends on the proof of the alcohol you are using (see Alcohol Ration Guide below)
Place your base mixture in the fridge to cool and wait til it is really chilled before you take on the next step. It is essential that the mixture is really well chilled because alcohol evaporates at 78.6 degrees Celcius / 173 Fahrenheit. Therefore when you add the hot water jello mixture in step 5, it may reach evaporation point if you are not mixing it in with a well chilled base mixture.
Boil some water in a pot or kettle, and add exactly 1 cup of boiling water to your powdered jello. Stir well until it is dissolved. It will look quite clear when it has dissolved.
Pour the hot jello into your base mixture and stir’
Pour the combined mixture into your jello cups, place on a tray and chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours. Serve chilled! And that’s all there is to know about how to make jello shots, happy partying!
