Basic Instructions for Preparing Syringe Shots Recipe

There are different ways in which jello syringe shots recipes are prepared but here are the basic guidelines.

  • Replace half of the water required to make the jello with alcohol.
  • For a six ounce pack of jello, you need two cups each of boiling water and cold water.
  • Substitute all the cold water with alcohol.
  • Do not use more alcohol than needed because the jello will not set up.
  • In addition, you should also bear in mind that the greater the proof of alcohol you use, the lesser the amount you should use. This means that you will have to use more cold water to set up the shots.
  • Measure the water needed by the gelatin and bring to a boil.
  • Once it boils, pour the water in a bowl or pitcher and then add your choice of jello. Stir well until the jello is dissolved completely. A whisk would work best for this process.
  • Get your choice of liquor, measure the precise amount that is needed and stir it into the jello.
  • Suck the mixture into jello shot syringes and put them inside the refrigerator.
  • The jello need at least three hours to set but full setting requires overnight refrigeration.

Alternative to Jello Syringes

In some circumstances, you may be worried about getting your syringes back, so you may choose to make your jello shots in a cup form instead.


If you’re making liquor-based jello cup shots, put your chosen bottle of liquor in the freezer around thirty minutes before you wish to make your shots.


  1. When you are ready to make your jello shots, place your chosen jello flavor into a large mixing bowl. Follow the instructions from the jello box when adding your hot water to the bowl.
  2. Set the bowl to the side and allow it to cool for two minutes.
  3. Once it has cooled for two minutes, add 6 oz of cold water and 10 oz of your chosen liquor to the mixture and stir it up.
  4. Pour the mixture into your shot cups evenly
  5. Place the shot cups into the refrigerator for at least three hours so that they have time to go firm.


By adding the hot water first, mixing the mixture, and then waiting for two minutes before adding the cold water, you will achieve the optimum firmness for your jello shots. They won’t be too hard, or too soft, they’ll be just right.
