These easy and fun treats are made with Jell-O. It is always fun and delicious to enjoy these colorful and delicious little treats. A variety of gelatin flavors and your favorite liquor are mixed together to create these popular shooters, sometimes referred to as “jelly” shots. There are a number of options for liquors, but it’s very likely to be vodka or rum.
As the gelatin and coke will balance out the flavors of the rum, you don’t need a fine rum for this recipe. Just a good-enough bottle from a budget-friendly bottle will do. An 8-ounce box of gelatin is the most commonly available commercial size, and this recipe makes 16 1-ounce shots from a box of 8-ounces.
- It would be easier to make a tray of spiked gelatin, even though shots are easier since they have little cleanup difficulty.
- If you would like to leave the portions in the dish for your guests to grab as they wish, simply divide the set gelatin into portions and place them on a serving tray or lay them out on it.
- It’s best to provide miniature spoons so guests can ease the gelatin out of the glasses if you serve the shots in small glasses.
