​FAQ About Jello Shots

What is the best liquor to use for Jello shots?

Although jello shots can be made with just about any type of alcohol, vodka is the most common. You can use any brand or flavor that you’d like.

How much alcohol can you put in Jello shots?

In general, a basic batch of Jello Shots is made with two cups of juice or water, one 6 ounce packet of gelatin, a cup of cold water, and a cup of alcohol. With these proportions, you’ll end up with a Jello Shot that’s around 10-percent ABV.

What’s the most vodka you can put in Jello shots?

Too much alcohol in a Jello shot will prevent it from setting. It will also make them too strong to enjoy. It is not suggested that you add more than 50% off the liquid as alcohol. Using the recipe above, you could use two cups of water and two cups of alcohol.

How do you make Jello shots not stick?

You can spray the cups before adding the jello and it will keep them from sticking. Make sure to use a spray that has no flavor. Buttery jello shots aren’t that great!

Will Jello shots set with lid on?

Let them set with the lids on upside down, and they will be easier to get out of the cup too. … Gelatin sets because of cool temps, lids won’t make a difference.
