Recipes Tips

If you want to make these Jello shots even more festive, try using different colors of Jello and layering them in the shot glasses. You can also add whipped cream or sprinkles on top for a fun touch.

Be sure to let the Jello mixture cool down before adding the tequila, as the alcohol can evaporate if the mixture is too hot. You can also adjust the amount of tequila you use depending on your preference for a stronger or weaker drink.

When pouring the Jello mixture into the shot glasses, it can be helpful to use a measuring cup with a spout to prevent spills. And if you're having trouble getting the Jello shots out of the glasses, try dipping the bottom of the glass in warm water for a few seconds to help loosen the Jello.
