Strawberry Lemonade Jello Shots Ingredients

Strawberry Lemonade Jello Shots raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (6-ounce) box strawberry jello mix 
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • ¾ cup lemon vodka
  • ¼ cup triple sec
  • Pink and yellow gummy fruit slices

PRO TIP:

Different stores carry different-sized plastic shot glasses, ranging from 1.5 ounces to 2.5 ounces. Use what you can find, and just know that this recipe will make fewer or more jello shots depending on the size of your disposable shot glasses.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

STRAWBERRY AND LEMON: The lemon-flavored vodka really comes through for a fun strawberry lemonade flavor. You could also use a combination of strawberry vodka and lemon vodka. Or use one 3-ounce package of strawberry jello and one 3-ounce package of lemon jello. The color of the jello shots will be different in this case.

How to Make This Strawberry Lemonade Jello Shots Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

This recipe makes 24 shots. If you are making these for a larger party and need more, you can easily double the recipe.

STEP ONE: In a medium mixing bowl or large (4-cup) measuring cup with a spout, whisk together strawberry jello mix and 1 cup of boiling water until the jello is fully dissolved.

STEP TWO: Once the jello is fully dissolved, stir in the cold water, lemon vodka, and triple sec. Mix until combined.

PRO TIP:

Use up to 1½ cups of alcohol for a stronger jello shot. For a lighter jello shot, you can use additional cold water and less alcohol. You need four cups total of liquid to combine with the jello mixture.

STEP THREE: Carefully pour jello mixture into the small plastic shot cups. Fill just under the top, so they don’t spill.

PRO TIP:

Setting the jello shot cups on a baking sheet will help make it easier to transport them to the fridge for chilling.

STEP FOUR: Transfer jello shots to the refrigerator and chill for 4 hours until set. 

The jello shots may firm up faster than 4 hours. If you are using shallower shot glasses/cups and if you use icy cold water for your cold water, they will not take as long to set.

STEP FIVE: Just before serving, top each jello shot with a gummy fruit slice.

PRO TIP:

Keep jello shots refrigerated until consuming. They will start to liquefy in the summer heat.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Jello shots will keep in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Cover if you use containers that do not come with individual lids; otherwise, pop the lids on for storage. Do not store with candy on top of the jello.

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

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I 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 1 to 2 days ahead of your party before serving, but make sure you are storing the containers with the lids on.

Can you freeze jello shots?

I don’t find that jello shots freeze well because of the gelatin and alcohol. While you can pop them 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.

Can I use regular vodka in this recipe?

This simple recipe is best made using lemon vodka as it would lose the lemony flavor if you replaced it with regular vodka.
