Tropical, sweet and summery, this jiggly take on an old fashioned cake is ready to party. Made with butterscotch schnapps, we think even grandma will approve of these jellies.

  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 box (3 oz) Jell-O™ pineapple
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch schnapps
  • 12 maraschino cherries with stems, drained


  • 1
    Prepare 12 plastic shot glasses by spraying each lightly with cooking spray. With a paper towel, wipe all but a trace layer out. This step will help the jello shots to release later.
  • 2
    In a medium size bowl with a spout, combine the gelatin and boiling water. Stir until the gelatin has dissolved.
  • 3
    Add in the vodka and butterscotch schnapps.
  • 4
    Drop a cherry into each plastic shot glass with the stem sticking out, then pour the gelatin mixture over the top.
  • 5
    Place in the refrigerator until the gelatin has firmly set, three hours or more. To serve, set jello shots on counter at room temperature for a few minutes until they release easily when tipped out. Place on a serving tray and serve immediately.
