Why We Love These Halloween Shots

It’s Unique – No plastic cups needed – the unique syringe delivery method is what makes this recipe special. These shots are super fun and a great addition to any party.

Make a Kid-Friendly Version – You can make a non-alcoholic version of these by simply omitting the vodka and preparing the Jello according to the package directions. Kids will go nuts for this fun and playful way to eat Jello.

Easy to Eat – The only downside to traditional Jello shots is how awkward it can be to get the Jello out of the cups. One of the best things about syringe Jello shots is that they release the Jello easily with no mess.

Ingredients

Tips & Tricks

  • You can reuse the syringes – just be sure to wash them thoroughly using a fine bristle brush or buy the dishwasher-safe kind and put them in the dishwasher.
  • Change up the flavor of the Jello to get a variety of shots. The red Jello is a fun choice for Halloween since they look like bloody syringes, but orange, grape and lime Jello are all great Halloween themed colors too.
  • Be careful not to add too much alcohol, as this could prevent your shots from setting properly.
  • Can’t find syringes? You can also serve these in 2 ounce Jello shot cups.

Can I make this Jello shot recipe with other kinds of alcohol?

Absolutely! You can make rum jello shots or even make these with tequila or Fireball Whisky.

What kind of syringes should I get?

You’ll want to get syringes that are specifically made for drink and dessert recipes. Look for products that are labeled food grade or food safe. We found our syringes on Amazon but you can also find them at your local party stores.

How do I store Jello shot syringes?

Keep them refrigerated and they should last 3-5 days, similar to any other kind of Jello shot.
