First, you’ll need Pumpkin vodka. For flavored vodkas, I like both Veil and Pinnacle; they are both reasonably priced. Don’t forget the RumChata, gelatin, sweetened condensed milk and gel food coloring in orange. If you like Pumpkin Pie spice, you can add a bit of Monin Syrup.

These incredible colored Jello Shots don’t use any Jello but are made with gelatin. It gives them a solid color and a bit thicker consistency. RumChata and Vodka herein lie this devilish pumpkin delight.

To make your Jello Shots, you’ll need Jello Shot cups. I use the squeezable Jello Shot cups and the flat round Jello Shot cups above. Click here to learn the differences between the 2 different styles of Jello Shot cups.

The second most important item is a large mouth mixing bowl with a spout. The largemouth mixing bowl with a spout makes it easy to pour the liquid into the Jello Shot cups. 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 not enough for me to invest in a gadget.

How to make Pumpkin RumChata Jell Shots

Place 14 Jello Shot cups on a baking sheet. Pour the Vodka and RumChata into the spouted mixing bowl and sprinkle the gelatin on the top. 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 clumping up, you are spreading it too quickly.

Let the gelatin mixture sit for 5 minutes. This seems like the longest process in this recipe. If you do have some dry patches, don’t worry. These Jello Shots will taste so good nobody will care that some gelatin didn’t dissolve.

In the meantime, boil the water. Add your Orange Gel Food Coloring 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. Refrigerate for 2 hours before placing the lids on the cups.

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. 
These “not really” Jello-Shots taste so good that nobody will care that some gelatin didn’t dissolve.
