For some reason, Jell-O doesn’t include directions for making Jello Shots on the back of its packaging. That’s not a problem, though—we’ve got you covered. Making Jello Shots is so easy, and once you master the basics, you’ll be able to make a slew of different recipes, including Margarita Jello Shots, Fireball Jello Shots and even Jello Shots inspired by complicated tiki drinks. Here, step-by-step instructions on how to make Jello Shots.
Large measuring glass
Pot or kettle
Plastic shot glasses
1 cup boiling water
1 packet Jell-O (your choice of flavor)
.5 cup cold water
.5 cup vodka (or your choice of spirit)

First, boil water. Once it’s at a rolling boil, pour one cup of the hot water into a large measuring glass and top with the Jell-O powder. Then, whisk until the mix has completely dissolved.
Add .5 cup cold water and .5 cup vodka to the mix and whisk again. When making Jello Shots, you always need to have a hot liquid and a cold liquid.
Arrange plastic shot glasses on a baking sheet (that will make it easy to move the shots into the fridge). Fill each plastic glass about three-quarters of the way up with the mix.
Place the tray of shots in the fridge and wait for about two hours or until the shots are set. And enjoy!
