Jell-O Shot Summer Fun

Jell-O shots

One of my favorite things to bring to a tailgate, lake day or really any large group gathering is a big batch of Jell-O shots. They’re fun, portable and incredibly customizable.

I’m a bit of a Jell-O shot queen myself; I’ve been experimenting with different recipes and combinations since I first turned 21. I decided it was time to whip up some new combinations for a camping trip we were taking that include long hot days in and out of the water.

Check out the three recipes I ended up with below. What are some of your favorite Jello-O shot combinations? Let me know via Instagram or Facebook!

Orange Creamsicle Jell-O Shots

  • 2 cups of Pinnacle Whipped Vodka (I also highly recommend this for pudding shots)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 small boxes of orange Jell-O mix 

Pink Lemonade Jell-O Shots

  • 2 ½ cups of UV Pink Lemonade Vodka
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • 2 small boxes of lemon Jell-O mix

Strawberry Lemonade Jell-O Shots

  • 2 ½ cups of Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka
  • 1 ½ cup of water
  • 1 large box of strawberry Jell-O mix


  1. Heat water until boiling
  2. Remove from heat and stir in Jell-O Mix until dissolved
  3. Add vodka and stir well
  4. Divide into individual containers and set in fridge over night

Also, apologies for the blogger fail on photos. Apparently I was so deep in vacation mode that I forgot to pull out a camera! Guess this means there will be more Jell-O shot recipes with better photos in the future. 😉
