Actual Jell-O Shots

For my Halloween party I made Jell-O shots in a syringe. They’re a smaller dose of shot-y goodness, but they are SO much easier than running your finger (or tongue) around the edge of the shot glass. These are super easy and they make a TON since it’s such a small dose.

At your local drug store ask for a box of oral syringes. They may have to order these- plan ahead. (These are what they give you at the vet to drug your cat.) Weird, I know. The pharmacist is going to look at you like you’re a nut, but they’re not expensive and they’re cool– which is what’s actually important.

Let’s do this…

1 oz. box of Jell-O
Water
Alcohol that goes well with your Jell-O flavor (like black cherry Jell-O and Malibu Strawberry & Whipped Cream Rum)

For a 1 oz. package of Jell-O mix you’ll need 1 cup of water & 1 cup of alcohol.
Mix your 1 cup of booze with 1/4 cup of water and refrigerate ahead of time.

Put your remaining 3/4 cup of water in a small pan and bring it to a boil.

Pour Jell-O powder in a mixing bowl and add the boiling water, stirring until the powder is totally dissolved (2-3 minutes).

Once combined, add your cold water/booze mixture and stir.
*It’s important that this mixture is cold because the high temperature of the boiled water (allegedly) has the ability to weaken the alcohol. I’m not a scientist, but I was warned so I’m just passing that along.

Now that your concoction is made it’s time to suck it up into a syringe.

Push all the air, put the open end into the liquid, & then suck it up!

Ignore the mess... Yes, an actual Jell-O shot in an actual syringe.

The syringes came with caps, so put a cap on that puppy!

Store the shots in mugs and stick them in the fridge for AT LEAST 4 hours.
I make mine the day before I need them.

Enjoy your crazy creations!
