Can I Use Apple Juice in Replace of Apple Cider

If you don’t have Apple cider you can use Apple juice. You will find cider offers more flavor as it is full of warm spices. 

But the juice will give a sweet flavor so it can be interchanged.

There are a variety of ways to serve up this fall treat. Get creative and have fun. 

Can I Make These Non Alcoholic

Feel free to leave out the alcohol to make these non alcoholic. You can add in extra cider or even say a ginger ale or lemon lime soda. 

It will give them flavor and be kid friendly or ready for adults who prefer no alcohol. 

Can I Add Extra Whiskey To Jello Shots

The one thing to remember is adding too much alcohol will make the jello not set up. Unfortunately you can’t really add extra whiskey because it will keep the mixture liquidy.

The jello won’t set up as it should. As you know whiskey and such won’t freeze so you run to similar issues. For shots like this less alcohol is best.
