Are they drinks or food? Who knows? But they are so fun and yummy that it’s worth taste-testing these Jello Shot Recipes for your next 21+ get-togethers!

Everyone would love to have these at their parties all year round.

You can serve Pink Lemonade Shots for your next girls’ night out.

Or, if you want something light, you can also serve the Classic Margarita Jell-O Shots.

But wait until you see #30.

It’s the most excellent way to bring your single friends together!

Okay, we know you can’t wait but go through this list any longer.

Here are 30 of the best, most refreshing, most delicious, and unique Jell-O shots recipes perfect for all occasions.

Scroll on!

Everybody knows that sriracha, the hot sauce that’s taken America by storm, is amazing on pizza and eggs, but what about Jell-O shots?

Why not explore this hot pepper goodness with a twist?

Try incorporating sriracha into your next party by making jello shots with it.

These will be sure to bring out the heat and impress your guests.

If you want to go all out and be super trendy, make these spicy jiggly shots in little bottles shaped like sriracha!

Your friends will find them adorable as well as delicious.

This is truly unconventional and will get your guests gasping even more than normal Jell-O shots would—and enjoying the subtle warmth of the sriracha.

These apple cider Jell-O shots will have you saying, “Felt cute. Might delete later.”

They’re a regular in many menus, but adding apple cider to the mix makes them special.

The sweet taste from the apples mixed with the mellow touch of cinnamon makes for a perfect drink for those who enjoy sugar, spice, and everything nice.

It’s like that warm hug that lasts only for a short while—but it does leave an impression!

With just a little bit of time in preparation, you can enjoy this take on the classic Baby Guinness shot as a Jell-O shot.

The gelatin is made with espresso and Baileys Irish Cream to help get that authentic coffee flavor and adds an element of sweet creaminess to offset the espresso’s bitterness.

These shots are great for those who want something a bit sweeter yet pack a surprising kick later on.

The Tequila Sunrise is a classic summer cocktail, but it can be hard to drink more than one or two in a night.

It’s also a great cocktail for introducing tequila to the uninitiated since the orange juice tends to hide the harsher tastes of the liquor.

These jelly shots are an excellent way to savor your Tequila Sunrises over time—and you can serve them with orange slices as garnishes!

Creamsicles are already a refreshing treat, but this jello shot recipe will make the classic flavor more mature and delicious.

You’re going to want to use cold ingredients to prevent the mixture from setting too early.

The alcohol should keep it from freezing over, so there’s no need to worry about that!

Be sure to dab any spills with a paper towel if you’re using plastic shot glasses.

Once poured, pop them into the fridge for about an hour until they set entirely, and then serve them at any party or celebration!

Making Jell-O shots is a great way to add some fun to your next party, and many people like to play with the flavor combinations.

If you’re looking for something different but still want that perfect balance of sweet and salty, then take a look at this recipe for bacon bourbon jelly shots.

Bacon may be one of the most commonly popular foods right now, and it seems like people are adding it to everything.

That’s why it makes sense that someone would figure out how to make Bacon Bourbon Jell-O Shots.

The bacon pieces make this treat more fun since they’re unexpected in a dessert item. 

Still, they also complement the other flavors perfectly.

It’s so good that everyone will want more than one!

This dreamy drink with a splash of cool vodka will be the perfect dessert for your girls’ night out.

These red-hued shots are a sure hit to young women and working professionals who want something light but still packs a punch.

Boxed white wine is a reliable favorite among moms.

Although it’s already great to serve as it is, there are some fun and unique ways to go about it. 

Simply mix some Jell-O with some boxed wine, add a hint of mint, and have something easy to prepare with quite a twist!

Whoever thought about turning Pink Lemonade into a Jell-O shot was a genius.

It’s pink, it’s refreshing, and it’s bite-sized!

The best part of this recipe is you don’t have to wait for all the alcohol to evaporate out of the gelatin—it’ll jiggle right up for your guests and you to enjoy.

The beauty of this recipe is that it does not require too much time to make.

So even if you’re hosting a last-minute pink theme party (like a bridal shower or bachelorette), you can whip up this lovely treat in no time at all.

Serve these with flamingo toothpicks for an extra dash of color!

The classic margarita is widely-known as one of the most popular cocktails globally, and for a good reason.

It’s beautiful to look at, cool and refreshing on a hot day, and packs a real punch.

If you’ve got a classic margarita recipe handy, you can turn that into the perfect jello shot!

The Classic Margarita Jello Shot is perfect for movie nights, dinner parties, or just sitting around with some friends.

Cranberries and oranges are already light and refreshing.

But this jello shots recipe will go up the ante on any party.

So, if you’re looking far and wide for a way to make your next get-together even more exciting, this is it!

But be careful not to go too heavy-handed on the alcohol—its light, airy texture makes it easy to take in a lot of liquid.

Your guests will love this elegant and classy way to drink champagne.

And even if they’re not fans of jellies, these drinks will instantly change their minds and fall in love.

If you’re going for an even more elegant look, consider using champagne flutes as molds.

You can also use molds or baking pans that have been chilled beforehand.

Remember that when you’re serving up your Jell-O shots at your next party, it’s best to keep them cold!

Floating eyeballs of gelatinous horror!

You can’t get more creepy than these bloody eyeballs when it comes to Halloween jello shots.

Made with edible eyeballs (how cool is that?!).

These tasty treats look amazing. 

They will also make a great conversation starter at your Halloween party.

Sour Patch Kids have got to be one of the most iconic candies.

While they are great on their own, incorporating them into a Jell-O shot is always a welcomed treat!

You can be sure that these will be a hit at your next party.

You can share many fun memories with childhood friends or new ones while munching on these yummy shots.

This particular shot is perfect for a summer party, with its fruity flavor and blue hue. 

The addition of blue curacao gives these shots their light blue color—and their extra oomph!

These shots are a great addition to summer parties and will please your guests with their zesty tartness that isn’t too sour.

These Jell-O shots have an extra layer of flavor.

Like the Fireball Jell-O shots, they’re made with apple and cinnamon, but this time you add an extra shot of spiced rum.

This gives the Green Apple Cinnamon Fireball Jell-O Shots a boozy heat similar to the taste of hot apple cider.

Feel free to garnish these with cinnamon sticks or maybe even mini apples.

Just make sure they’re not too heavy.

The result is a drink that everyone will love!

These are a fun, festive way to get the party started at your holiday gathering.

They’re mini alcoholic Jell-O desserts that come in their little cups—so you don’t even have to break out a tray for them.

You’ve got a boozy treat that will delight Santa when he gets done delivering gifts.

Even if he doesn’t like Jell-O shots all that much, he’ll probably appreciate the effort behind it.

You’re still on his nice list!

Gameday is always better with a peach jello shot.

This isn’t just any old Jell-O shot, though.

We’re talking about a post-up-worthy Jell-O shot that includes real peaches and Crown Royal Peach to give it an extra edge in the spirit of competition.

The peach is a welcome twist from the classic Jell-O shots made with lemon or lime juice.

The lemon or lime can sometimes be too tart for those who don’t care for sour tastes.

Whether serving them to your guests at a game-watching party or simply enjoying them yourself during the action, they hit the spot every time.

It’s best to serve this cold always for a better experience.

You can also add fresh peach bits to your jello shots to make it more interesting.

If you’re throwing a pink-themed party, these are the perfect addition to the drink menu.

These shots have an impressive presentation with a great taste to match.

And by incorporating Starburst into the recipe, you get a sweet and mellow flavor that complements the alcohol nicely.

Do you know what’s even better than a cup of hot cocoa?

A cup of spiked hot cocoa!

Before you start imagining how to make the creamy, sweet drink even better, hold up, and read on because we’ve already figured it out for you!

Hot Cocoa Pudding Shots are not only a great way to get in the holiday spirit.

They’re also simple to whip up and are sure to please everyone!

So while we know that your morning drink is cozy and comforting, it becomes warm enough to make us feel fuzzy when you add alcohol.

Also, this recipe isn’t too sweet or too bitter—it’s made just right for you!

We always give the nod to the classic red velvet cake.

But when you add Bailey’s Irish Cream to the mix, it brings this Jell-o shot to a whole new level.

You can’t go wrong with this recipe with a hint of chocolate-y goodness and creaminess from the Bailey’s.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different alcohols if you’re looking for various flavors. 

We found out that most liquors work well in these shots.

If you thought Jolly Rancher only made hard candy, we have a wonderful surprise!

The brand has branched out and now includes a gelatin mix line that tastes like the candy we used to guzzle as kids.

It’ll definitely remind you of summertime.

Oreo is a well-known snack that everyone has munched on more than once.

Turning the sweetness of Oreo into Jell-O Shots is something that deserves all the praise in the world.

The alcohol balances out the creaminess and the sweetness of the Oreo.

These Jell-O shots are a must-have at Harry Potter parties.

After all, the butterbeer is one of the best drinks in the Harry Potter series.

This authentic recipe can stir up childhood memories, transporting you back to your first read of the beloved series.

And while you can enjoy an authentic butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, this recipe would bring it closer to home.

So you’re looking to take your piña colada game to the next level?

That’s what we’re here for.

These Pineapple Jell-O shots will make you feel like you’re sitting on the beach with friends, even if you are just in your backyard.

In fact, they’re so tasty that you might find yourself making them even after Halloween!

If you want to spice things up with your friends at the next Thanksgiving party, serve them these pudding shots.

We all remember childhood Halloween parties fondly.

All the scrumptious candy, the candy corn in our beds, and trick-or-treating with our parents.

It’s also about spending time with friends and family, so we think it’s important to always include this nostalgic treat in any celebration.

We’re sure you know how much your guests will enjoy these treats: simple to make and absolutely delicious!

Jell-O shots are an easy way to add a touch of whimsy to your next party.
