Halloween Jello Shots – A Beautiful Mess


Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year and what’s Halloween without a party full of decorations, costumes, and themed treats and cocktails? Jello shots are a classic and fun way to serve cocktails and we have some easy Halloween jello shot ideas to make prepping for your next party a snap!

While these are obviously an adult treat, you can also make these without the alcohol to serve at a kid-friendly party as well (try serving along with our Halloween Cake Pop ideas!).

Ingredients for Halloween Jello Shots:

Alcohol: Vodka is the most commonly used alcohol for jello shots, but you can use lots of different spirits too. A lighter flavor like white rum will still allow the jello taste to be dominant, but you can also use stronger tasting options like gin, whiskey, or tequila if that’s your preference or goes best with your flavor profile.

Jello Box Mix: Using a boxed jello mix is the easiest way to get your jello shots made and in the fridge quickly to set, so pick your favorite flavor and get started! This recipe is for a 3-ounce box (which will make 10-12 shots), so just double the water and alcohol if you are making a 6-ounce box.

Water: Water and your alcohol will be the two liquids that you use for your jello shots.

Decorations: Depending on which shot you make, you’ll want green boba pearls for the witch’s cauldron and monster, swizzle sticks for cauldron sticks, candy eyeballs for the monster, gummy eyeballs for the eyeball shots, and jello shot syringes for the blood syringe shots.

Tips and Tricks for Halloween Jello Shots:

  • Try squeezable cups to get your jello shot out easier.
  • Don’t add the boba pearls, candy eyes, or gummy eyes until right before you are ready to serve.
  • Use a flavored vodka (like vanilla or chocolate) to add another layer of flavor to your shot.
  • Layer your shots with different flavors and Halloween colors by pouring a small amount of one flavor in each cup, let that flavor set in the fridge, and add another flavor on top. Repeat with as many flavors as you would like!

How to Make Halloween Jello Shots:

Boil your water: For the base of your shots, boil 1 cup of water and add it to a mixing bowl that contains your flavored gelatin powder. Whisk the powder and hot water until the powder is dissolved.

Add your liquid: Pour in your remaining cold water and alcohol and whisk until combined.

Pour into cups: Pour your mixture into your small cups 3/4 of the way full (it’s easiest to pour from a spouted measuring cup) and add lids. Make sure your liquid is completely cool before adding lids so you don’t get condensation forming on the inside of the lid.

Set your jello shots: Put your jello shots in the fridge for 2-4 hours until set. Once ready to eat, set them out for your guests and enjoy!
