- Bring the tonic water to a boil. Use an electric kettle—they boil fast!
- In a mixing bowl, add the contents of 1 box of jello to the boiling water, and continue stirring until all Jello is dissolved, which will take about 1 minute. Then turn the heat off. Pour in your, hopefully, ICE COLD liquor and stir for 1 more minute. Science says that your shots will solidify better in the fridge if your liquor is as cold as possible when you add it to the boiling hot Jello.
- After everything is totally dissolved, pour the mixture into little plastic shot glass cups. If you want to be really safe about it, check out The Jellinator!!!
- Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, and the jello shots will be ready to enjoy!
Jello Shot King'S RECIPE NOTES:
If all of the powdered gelatin mix is not fully dissolved, you will get uneven Jello. The part with the undissolved gelatin will be very rubbery.. for you people that are into that sort of thing though.
The colder the alcohol when you add it to the mix, the better your jello shots will be. If you’re using 80 proof or higher alcohol, you can keep it safely in the freezer until it’s time to add. This will produce the optimum results for making the perfect Jello shots.
