Tips & Tricks

  • If you can’t find whipped cream flavored vodka, you can substitute plain or vanilla vodka instead.
  • To make the shots easier to remove from the cups, spray some coconut oil in the cups before pouring in the Jello mixture.
  • Add some ground nutmeg on top of the whipped cream for even more delicious fall flavor.

Can I Make These Ahead Of Time

Sure – Just wait to add the whipped cream until you’re ready to serve them. Keep your shots in the fridge an airtight container or use the Jello shot cups that come with lids. They should last for up to 4-5 days.

Can I Freeze Them?

I wouldn’t recommend it, as freezing can alter both the taste and the texture of the shots.
