Tips & Tricks

  • If you don’t have apple cider, you can substitute regular apple juice instead
  • You can also experiment to create other fun Jello shot recipes. Try adding cranberry apple juice or pear juice for more flavor variations.
  • For a fancy optional garnish, top your whipped cream with red hots candies or crushed Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.
  • Turn these into apple pie Jello shots by sprinkling crumbled pie crust over the whipped cream, then drizzling a little caramel sauce over the top.
  • Be careful not to use too much alcohol or your shots won’t set properly.
  • To drink your shot, start by running your finger around the inside of the cup to separate the Jello from the shot cup. Then just tip the cup into your mouth and enjoy!

How Should I Store Apple Cider Jello Shots?

Your shots should keep in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. Keep them in an airtight container or use Jello shot cups with lids to keep them covered.
