In order to make Jello Shots that are not ‘fruit flavored’ you have to use gelatin instead. Gelatin is not difficult to work with and the amazing thing about gelatin is that you can make any of your favorite cocktails into a Jello Shot. Mine of course is the Espresso & Cream Martini Jello Shots!

Mix the coffee, Kahlua, Vodka and simple syrup in a spouted pitcher and sprinkle the gelatin on the top of the mixture. It will start to thicken so let it sit for 5 minutes. Pour the boiling water into the gelatin mixture and stir for 3 minutes, until the gelatin is dissolved. Fill the Jello Shot cups 2/3 full and put them into the refrigerator for 40 minutes to chill.

There are two types of Jello-Shot cups that I like using, the short round 2 oz Jello-Shot cups and the taller squeezable Jello-Shot cups. Both work well, but they each have their best uses. See my Tips & Tricks page to find out why.

Then follow the recipe to make the cream layer. Pour the cream mixture into the espresso bottom layer and refrigerate for 2 hours before putting on the Jello Shot tops. These Espresso & Cream Jello Shots can be made 2 days in advance, if covered and kept in the refrigerator.

Notes

These Jello Shots are not made with Jello, but made with Gelatin. Gelatin can be tricky to work with the first time around but the key to success is sprinkling the Gelatin on the liquid mixture very slowly so that each crystal of Gelatin hits the liquid. If you sprinkle too quickly, you’ll see a pile of Gelatin build up on top of the liquid. Most of this will dissolve in the hot water, if there is any remaining it will be so small it will not be noticed in the Jello Shot. Drink up!
