How to Make
Full directions on these 4th of July Jello shots are in the printable recipe card below. This is a quick walkthrough.
Start by making your red and blue Jello according to the boxes. Place them in separate containers, and allow them to fully set up.
To assemble your Jello shots, pour a little of the white, and place pieces of the cut up red and blue Jello. Then add more white, and repeat to create a fun layered look.
Refrigerate the Jello shots in the fridge until they set up full.Print
Making Non-Alcoholic Fourth of July Jello Shots
Don’t want to use alcohol? Go right ahead and make these the same way, but replace the rum with 1/2 cup hot water.
Mix up and make the exact way, and enjoy a non-alcoholic Jello dessert.
The stained glass jello shots need to be stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them up. I buy the shot cups that have lids, so they are covered. Then I place in a 9×13 pan and store in the fridge. That way they can easily be moved in and out.
You can leave your shots out for up to 2 hours, and then at that time you will want to refrigerate them again for at least 30 minutes.
Another trick is to place ice in a bowl, then place a smaller bowl inside. Then add your cups into the bowl. The ice underneath can help to keep them cool while serving your family or friends.
what alcohol to use for jello shots?
For rum, I recommend a white rum, or one that doesn’t have flavoring like a spiced rum. You don’t want the alcohol to overpower the Jello flavors.
