⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Why do Jello shots get you drunk faster?

They actually don’t. What really happens is the sweetness in the shots masks part of the alcohol flavor. So you end up consuming more alcohol than you realized.

Can you add too much alcohol to Jello shots?

Yes, you can. Too much alcohol prevents the Jello from setting, leaving you with a liquidy mess.

How many Jello shots does it take to get drunk?

4 Jello shots is equal to 1 shot of booze. So multiply your usual shot ceiling by 4.

  • Some people prefer the 2 ounce cups for jello shots and those work well too, you just will get less shots out of each batch. 
  • This recipe is really easy to double or triple (and I recommend it!)
  •  You can use flavored vodka if you like. This would be delicious with whipped cream flavored vodka.
  •  I would wait until you are ready to serve before topping with the whipped cream and sprinkles.
  •  These can also be made without the vodka, just substitute the vodka for water. You can use cherry or strawberry for the bottom layer and the strawberry jello I used was a Starburst Strawberry flavored jello because it was pink, so you can use whatever flavor you like that is pink for that top layer.
