Here's what you'll need to make your Jello Shots: Jello Shot Cups With Lids (Essential!) A lot of Jello. Each 3 ounce Jello box will make approximately 20 shots. Willing partygoers Here are secrets to The Perfect Jello Shot Recipe and the answers to all your burning jello shot questions: After you dissolve the jello in 1 cup of boiling water, the secret is to use a half cup of hard liquor (typically vodka) and a half cup of flavored liqueur (substituted for the 1 cup cold water per jello package directions). This will give a strong shot that doesn't taste too strong. Jello shots should be yummy. (Not something to make you pucker, right?) Triple sec is a good choice for the liqueur as it mixes well with many jello flavors, and gives a sweet/tart finish. Peach schnapps will make any shot taste more like candy. Flavored vodkas can also be used.
