American Pride Jell-O Shots Recipe
The Fourth of July is a huge holiday for my family. It’s the one time of year we all gather at my grandmother’s house, grill food, toast to good times, and have fun. We dub July the “Birthday Month” since six people in my family all have birthdays in July! It’s a time for happiness and celebration, along with all things red, white, and blue. In honor of this amazing time of year, I have prepared a simple recipe for Jell-O shots. These shots have three layers of color and a topping of your choice. American Pride Jell-O shots are always a crowd favorite!
American Pride Jell-O Shots
Prep Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 2 hours and 30 mins Creates: 20 Jell-O shots
- In a small bowl, combine boiling water and berry Jell-O mix. Stir until completely dissolved. Stir in vodka.
- In a separate small bowl, repeat process with cherry Jell-O mix. Let both mixtures cool.
- Meanwhile, make white layer: In a medium bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cup of milk. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring remaining 3/4 cup milk to a simmer. Turn off the heat then stir in sugar, vanilla, and vodka.
- Pour heated mixture over plain gelatin mixture and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Let cool for 10 minutes.
- Lightly spray 20 two-ounce plastic shot glasses with cooking spray. Spoon about 1 tablespoon berry Jell-O mix into each. Refrigerate until set but not completely firm, about 15 minutes.
- Top with about 1 tablespoon white gelatin mixture. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes.
- Cover with about 1 tablespoon cherry Jell-O mixture. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
Add topping: There are several topping choices to add a bit of flair to the shots. You can add a dollop of whipped cream or Cool Whip, then add red or blue sprinkles. Then you can garnish with a maraschino cherry or a strawberry!
These fun Jell-O shots will brighten up your Fourth of July party, and your guests will be impressed. They are so easy to make and even easier to eat! I will suggest not consuming these while lighting off fireworks. Have a fun and safe Fourth of July!
