Fireball Jello Shots Ingredients

fireball jello shots raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ½ cup apple juice (I used Juicy Juice brand)
  • ¾ cup Fireball cinnamon whiskey
  • 1 (3-ounce box) cherry-flavored jello

For the Garnish

PRO TIP:

If you can’t find the 2-ounce plastic shot glasses with lids, they may be labeled as condiment cups. These can be used interchangeably. You can use any shot cups you prefer but keep in mind that your servings may differ from this recipe.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

JELLO: I used cherry-flavored jello for this easy jello shots recipe. You can substitute strawberry or black cherry flavored jello, and these jello shots will still taste delicious. You could even change it up and use orange jello for a different spin on the recipe.

APPLE JUICE: I suggest using regular apple juice for this Fireball cherry jello shots recipe rather than the freshly pressed kind. I find that the fresh-pressed, or cider, apple juices tend to have sediment that settles at the bottom of the bottles that needs to be shaken before drinking. This makes the apple juices cloudy and can therefore make your Fireball jello shots look cloudy and not clear like this recipe.

How To Make This Fireball Jello Shots Recipe

PRO TIP:

This recipe can easily be doubled if you are serving them at a large party. Just remember to label them for the adults only and not the kiddos. 

STEP ONE: Place 12 (2-ounce) plastic jello shot cups, without the lids, onto a medium-sized sheet tray. 

PRO TIP:

Placing the small cups onto the sheet tray before filling will make it easier to transport them to the refrigerator to chill.

STEP TWO: In a large mixing bowl or large liquid measuring cup with a pour spout, add the packet of cherry jello crystals and boiling water. Whisk to dissolve the powdered cherry jello completely.

STEP THREE: Add the apple juice and Fireball cinnamon whiskey to the jello mixture and whisk for an additional 30 seconds to incorporate all the ingredients.

STEP FOUR: Pour the Fireball jello shot mixture evenly into the plastic jello shot cups. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours or up to overnight.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: You can use a cookie sheet or dishes to stack your Jello shot cups on while they’re chilling so that you can stack them in the fridge. You can also store the plastic cups in airtight containers to keep them contained from toppling over. The shots will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge.

IN THE FREEZER: Because of the gelatin and alcohol, this jello shot recipe doesn’t tend to freeze very well.

MAKE-AHEAD: You can make these cinnamon Fireball shots up to 3 days ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator with the plastic lids that come with the package of plastic 2-ounce shot cups. You can garnish them once you are ready to serve.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How many shots are in a standard jello shot?

About four jello shots will equal one regular shot.

How to store vodka jello shots?

If you have any leftover jello shots, you can store them in the fridge for up to a week with their lids tightly on. You can make them 3 days ahead of your party before serving, but make sure you are storing the containers with the lids on.

Can you freeze jello shots?

No, I don’t find that jello shots freeze well because of the gelatin and alcohol. While you can pop in the freezer for a few minutes to help speed along the setting process, you shouldn’t store them in the freezer after they’re done.
