Our Best Summer Jelly Shots
It’s just not a summer party unless you have the best of the best jello shots! MORE+ LESS-

Spiked jello shots bring out the kid in all of us. A kid that’s over 21, drinks responsibly, and always identifies a designated driver, that is. Outside of that, all bets are off. 

If you’re bent on enjoying summer to the hilt, we highly suggest adding a few rounds of our best jello shots to the menu. Refreshing on hot days, mood-boosting on the rainy ones, and happy-making on every day in between.


1. Root Beer Float Jello Shots

Yeah, just like those drugstore counter root beers you always heard about, complete with tiny sippie straws. Slurp.


2. Banana Cream Jello Shots

Look at these little bananas, so innocent and appealing. You wouldn’t guess that each one packs a 99-proof punch! Consider them your gift from the boozy gods of the universe.


3. Neapolitan Jello Shots

Fans of ice cream will love these cone-shaped jello shots.


4. Red, White and Blue Strawberry Jello Shots

Fresh strawberries jam-packed with a patriotic jello shot. It’s going to be one heckuva 4th!


5. Ocean Margarita Jello Shots

What makes these margaritas? A bolt of tequila, por supuesto. What makes them blue? A hit of blue curacao. And what makes them awesome? All of the above.


6. Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Shots

Unbelievably gourmet-tasting. Completely tipsy-making. Each mega-marshmallow is hollowed out to serve as a shot glass for liqueur-laden gelatin. S’more, please!


7. Watermelon Basil Martini Jello Shots

Basil and watermelon together create an insanely delicious flavor, and when you add a little gin or vodka, there’s nothing like it on earth. Making you the winner of the host/hostess of the century award.


8. Jello Shot Gummy Fish Bowl

Being a showoff isn’t the worst thing in the world. Especially if you’re showing off your jelly crafting skills in this fun centerpiece—then serving it up for everyone to share!


9. Cucumber Lime Margarita Jello Shots

So classy looking, from the minimalist shape to the delicate color and elegant finishing touch. Of course, the kick-in-the-pants tequila doesn’t hurt none, neither.


10. Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shots

Oh yeah, there’s some freshness going on here. Each hollowed-out strawberry delivers delicious daiquiri flavor in jello shot form to your mouth. Berry bottoms up, folks.


11. White Wine Sangria Jello Shot

Use that cheap $5 bottle of white wine that someone abandoned at your last party to be the hit of the next one. Fruit, vino, chill, victory.


12. Piña Colada Jello Shots

Pineapple layers sandwiched between coconutty creaminess. Oh, and did we mention the rum? Yeah, figured you’d like that part.


13. Fruity Vanilla Jello Shots

Itsy-bitsy-teeny-tiny jello bowls holding even itsier-bitsier-teeny-tinier chunks of flavored jello. All spiked with flavored vodka. All absolutely irresistible, especially after popping that first delicious bite.


14. Flaming Marshmallow Jello Shots

Marshmallows filled with vodka—that’s cool already, but then the white-hot heat of fire for a toasted campfire-flavor finish? That’s so cool, it’s hot.


15. Slanted Rainbow Jello Shot 

Tipsy from the start. Make layers of colorful spiked jello by tipping over the shot glasses as the gelatin solidifies; you simply can’t possibly make enough of these for your next house party (decorated in matching colors, naturally).
