I love Jello Shots because they have great fruit flavors and sparkling colors. BUT this is Halloween, and for Halloween Jello Shots, it’s time to go beyond basic fruity flavors and rainbow colors and explore the variety offered by flavored Vodka, Rum, and Whiskey. Halloween Jello Shots should be a fun and flavorful experience, and using different spirits can make your Jello Shots stand out.

Think about the rich taste of caramel whiskey, the spicy kick of cinnamon rum, or the sweet taste of Marshmallow vodka in your Jello Shots. These flavors add a unique twist and cater to a more adventurous appetite. So, skip the usual and make your next Halloween party memorable with Jello Shots that bring a new flavor to the party!

Need a great Cocktail Shaker but don’t know which one to buy? Look no further.

Martini or cocktail, a good shake makes all the difference in the world so buying a cocktail shaker can seriously step up your at-home drink game. Think about it: no more settling for boring mixed drinks when you can whip up bar-quality cocktails in your kitchen. It’s not just about the fancy presentation (although that’s a fun bonus) but also about how it makes mixing drinks easier and more fun.

Jello-Shot Cups
Jello-Shot Cups

To make your Jello Shots, you’ll need Jello Shot cups. Click here to learn the differences between the 3 different styles of Jello Shot cups. I use the squeezable Jello Shot cups, the flat round Jello Shot cups above, and the square Jello Shot cups in the main photo.

The second most important item is a large-mouth mixing bowl with a spout. This bowl makes pouring the liquid into the Jello Shot cups easy. I have seen ‘tools’ on Amazon that assist you with filling your Jello Shot cups, but the bowl with the spout works well. Of course, you may have a few drips here and there, but I need more to invest in one of those tools.

How to make Blood Red Jello Shots with Eyeballs

First, place 16 Jello Shot cups on a baking sheet.

Pour the liquor (Vodka, Rum, or Whiskey) into the spouted mixing bowl and sprinkle the Gelatin on top. Gelatin can be tricky to work with when using it the first time. The secret is to ‘slowly’ sprinkle the Gelatin on top of the liquid. If you see it clumping up, you are spreading it too quickly.

Let the gelatin mixture sit for 7 minutes. If you do have some dry patches, don’t worry. Ensure your water is boiling for the next step.

In the meantime, boil the water. Add your Super Red Gel Food Color to the boiling water and stir until combined.

Then, pour the water and food coloring mixture into the gelatin mixture and stir for 3 minutes.

Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir until combined well.

Slowly pour the mixture into your Jello Shot cups until they are 3/4 full.

Refrigerate for 2 hours before placing the lids on the cups. Jello Shots can be made 2 days in advance and kept chilled. When ready to serve, remove the tops and add an eyeball or body part to each cup.

Notes

Gelatin can be tricky to work with the first time you use it in a recipe. The secret is to ‘slowly‘ sprinkle the gelatin on top of the liquid. If you see it is clumping up, you are sprinkling too quickly. If you have some dry patches, don’t worry; ensure your water is boiling before adding it to the gelatin mixture and stir until the clumps are dissolved. 
If you want a darker color, add a tablespoon of hot water and 1/2 teaspoon of gel food color to a small bowl and stir until combined. Then add the food coloring mixture to your gelatin mixture and mix well.
