The Bramble: Made with gin, a lemon sour base, and a blackberry liqueur. Garnish with a blackberry and candied lemon. I like this color combination – deep purple and yellow.
Pistachio Pudding Shots
Pistachio pudding, vodka (plain or flavored), whipped cream, and sprinkles or nuts for topping. These look so yummy!
Mimosa Jello Shots
These are made with champagne and orange juice, and cut with an oval cookie cutter. They would be perfect for a bridal shower or girl’s lunch.
Cosmopolitan Jello Shots
Cranberry juice, flavored vodka, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and lime zest for garnish. A garnish on the jello shots really makes a big difference in giving it that gourmet feel.
Blackberry Cosmopolitan Jello Shots
Similar to the traditional cosmo but with a blackberry brandy. These are garnished with a thin slice of raw cranberry and just a dab of lime zest. Miniature cupcake wrappers make these easy to eat.
Bushwacker Jello Shots
Now, THIS is dessert. Made with vanilla ice cream, Kahlua, Bailey’s, rum, amaretto, creme de cacao, and drizzled with chocolate. I wouldn’t mind having one of these with a fresh cup of coffee!
Cucumber & Lime Margherita Jello Shots
Tequila, limeade, cucumber, and Cointreau wrapped with cucumber ribbons. Refreshing!
Espresso Martini Jello Shots
Kahlua, Bailey’s, vanilla vodka, espresso, and agave nectar.
Elderflower Mojito Jello Shots
Elderflower liqueur, rum, mint, lime juice, and agave nectar. The floral pattern was simply painted on with a paint brush and food coloring!
Paloma Jello Shots
Grapefruit soda, limeade, and tequila. Garnished with a slice of fresh grapefruit.
Rainbow Cherry Jello Shots
Have you ever seen rainbow colored cherries like these? Me either! Until now. I don’t know if they are available at your local grocery store but they can be purchased here. These can be made with any of your favorite jello shot recipes, just use the colorful cherries as a handle.
Ocean Margherita Jello Shot
Tequila, Blue Curacao, sugar, and lime juice. Love the brilliant color of these ones!
