What Flavor Are These Jello Shots

This St Patty’s day Jell-O shot is a layered shot. The green layer uses sour pucker Apple, the white is marshmallow and coconut, and orange layer is orange liqueur. 

Each layer offers a sweet flavor that will be a treat to enjoy! 

How Do You Make A Layered Jello Shots

What you will do is start with the bottom layer of the shot. Pour it into each container and allow it to refrigerate as directed in recipe card. 

Then you will love on to the second layer and then third. By allowing the mixture to set up a bit then gently pouring in the next layer, will give you defined layers like this shot has.

Top with some whipped cream, sprinkles and candy that looks like a rainbow and serve it up. 

Can I Make These In Advance

Absolutely! Jell-O shots need time to set up so making them in advance is a great idea. 

You will find that adding the whipped topping and such is best to do right before serving. Otherwise it will break down and can almost melt on top the jello. 

Can You Get Drunk On Jello Shots

Jell-O shots are something you will find that if you eat enough of you could get a bit drunk. Depending on the type of alcohol used and how much will play a factor. 

Most of the time Jell-O shots use minimal alcohol as they need to set up properly, and too much alcohol will affect that. 

But if you find using a stronger alcohol you can affect the strength in these shots for sure.

Can You Taste Alcohol In Jello Shots

Because you are using flavored alcohols you will find they stand out more than say a classic vodka. 

Now if you make your Jell-O shots feel free to change up the alcohol if you don’t have or can buy the drink. Now, you are welcome to use a plain vodka for all the layers if you want. 

Celebrate St Patrick’s day the right way and serve up these tasty shots to pass out to guests!
