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. I just love these Pumkin Pie Jello Shots.

Mix the Vodka and Rumchata in a spouted pitcher and sprinkle the Gelatin on the top of the mixture. It will start to thicken, so let sit for 5 minutes. Add the food coloring to the boiling water and pour the boiling water with food coloring mixture into the Gelatin mixture. Stir about 3 minutes until the Gelatin is dissolved. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk. Fill the Jello Shot cups 3/4 full with the Pumpkin Pie Jello Shot mix and refrigerate for 2 hours before adding the top.

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.

Gelatin can be a little 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 that it is clumping up, then you are sprinkling to quickly. This is the longest process in this entire recipe. If you do have some dry patches, don’t worry, make sure your water is boiling before adding it to the gelatin mixture and stir until the clumps are dissolved. These “not really” Jello-Shots will taste so good, and represent your Team so well, nobody will care that some gelatin didn’t dissolve.
If you want a darker orange color, add a tablespoon of hot water and 1/4 teaspoon of orange food coloring to a small bowl and stir until combined. Then add the food coloring mixture to your gelatin mixture and stir well.
If you find your color is too dark, you can add up to 1/4 cup more sweetened condensed milk to your gelatin mixture to lighten the color.
