How to Serve

Serve your Halloween jello shots chilled so they remain solidified. Top with edible star sprinkles, green sugar, and whipped cream if desired. Jello shots last up to three days in the fridge, it is recommended to keep them covered to maximize their freshness.

What Alcohol is Best for Jello Shots?

Vodka and rum are the most popular and common liquors to use when making jello shots, but anything that works well with the fruity flavor of jello will work. No top shelf bottles required, using a low-mid level vodka will be fine since the flavor of the jello well masks it.
