  1. Ingredients for fishbowl jello shots
    Gather your ingredients! Vodka, Blue Curacao, Berry Blue Jello, Gummy Fish
  2. Bring one cup of water to a boil. I recommend you use an electric kettle—they boil fast!
  3. Choose a good mixing bowl. One with a pouring lip helps. To your bowl, combine 1 cup of boiling water with a box of Berry Blue Jello. Keep stirring until everything is dissolved, which will take about 1 minute.
  4. pouring curacao
    Add 1/2 cup of cold vodka and 1/2 cup cold curacao, and stir for 1 more minute. Blue Curacao is sweet liqueur with a paradise-like orange flavor.. you can also get a non-alcoholic Blue Curacao if you want to tone it back on the booze. And side note: Science tells us that your jello shots will solidify better in the fridge if your liquor is as cold as possible when you combine it to the boiling hot Jello. Not sure why, but it just works best.
  5. Now you're ready to pour some jello shots! Carefully pour the mixture into little plastic shot glass cups. Be careful, it's real easy to be messy and waste that precious alcoholic liquid! It may help to move the jello into a smaller more manageable container at this point, from which to pour the shots from.

  6. fish gummies in jello shot cups
    Lay out your shot cups. At this point you have to choose how you want to position your little gummy fish. Do you want them in the bottom of your shot cups? Or do you want them on top? Or both? I tried it both ways as you can see in the photos.
  7. If you put the gummies in first and pour the jello over them and let the shots set, the gummy softens up a bit and isn't super hard or tough, which is sort of nice.
  8. But if you press the gummies in from the top, they will be fresh gummies and will be easier to see. The gummies at the bottom of the shots were pretty hard to see well after the shots were set and ready to consume. Btw, if I make these again, I'm going to buy this awesome rainbow assortment of JuJu Fish.. 2.5lb. JuJu gummies are the best!

    When and how do you place the fish in the jello if you want the fish on top? Do you push it in after it solidifies or like an hour after it’s sat in refrigerator?

    • Jay August 10, 2018 at 5:47 pm - Reply

      Yes, as soon as the jello has solidified, you can do it.

    Do lids fit on cups if fish sticks out the top?

    • Jay August 10, 2018 at 5:46 pm - Reply

      Yeah, but they won’t stick out too far. I’m sure it will still look cool, but wouldn’t have the same wow factor maybe?

    Can you add more liquor than 1/2? I’m dealing with pro drinkers lol

    • Jay March 23, 2019 at 10:24 pm - Reply

      LOL! You can.. I saw another guy that experiemented to see how far he could take the liquor to non-liquor liquid ratio.. and I want to say you can approach 3/4 liquor but it will start to get to the point where it won’t fully gel or solidify into jello, if you add too much booze.. you can definitely go a little more than 50/50 though!

    Can you make the jello and add the fish the next day and push them in jello or will that be too late ?

    • Jay April 11, 2019 at 4:15 pm - Reply

      Yeah, I think that should work fine. You can push the fish through the jello, just know that you’ll have a little spot visible where you pushed it through. You could always cover it with a little spritz of whipped cream though! Whipped cream and jello are best friends IMHO.
