Jello shots

These are so much fun for a party...just bring out a tray full every once in a while and pass it around. I use little paper cups or plastic sauce cups, and use a turkey baster to fill them.
You can provide plastic spoons if you want. We usually just suck'em out of the cups.

Margarita shots
Lime Jell-O, large box or two small boxes
2 cups boiling water
1 cup cold water
1/2 cup Tequila
1/4 cup Triple Sec

Bocce Ball Jiggle Shots
Two small boxes (or one large) Orange Jell-O
One cup boiling water
One-half cup Amaretto

Carribean Sunset Jell-O
1 large box of Orange Jell-O, or two small boxes
2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups cold water
1/2 cup Rum

Daiquiri Jell-O
Large Box (or two smalls) Lime Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
1+1/4 cup cold water
1/4 cup Triple Sec
1/4 cup Dark Rum
1/4 cup Light Rum

Fuzzy Navel Jell-O #1 - Figmo's Favorite
Small box of Orange Jell-O.
1 cup boiling water
1/3 cup cold water
2/3 cup Peach Schnapps (approx 30 proof)

Honolulu Mai Tai Jell-O
Mixed Fruit Jell-O or "Tropical Punch" jell-o, small box.
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup Dark Rum
1/4 Light Rum
1/4 cup pineapple juice (canned, don't use fresh-squeezed)

Scary Yellow Pina Colada Jell-O #1
Pineapple Jell-O, large box (4 cup size)
2 cup boiling water
1 1/3 cup cold water
2/3 cup Coconut-flavored Rum (such as Malibu or Coco-Rhum)
Or: 2 cup boiling, 1 cup cold, 1 cup coconut rum for stronger "shots")

Strawberry Daiquiri Jell-O #2
Use large box or 2 small boxes of Wild Strawberry Jell-O.
3.25 cups water (half or all of it boiling)
1/2 cup Light Rum
2 TBLS. fresh lime juice.
3 TBLS. Triple Sec

Tequila Sunrise Jell-O Shots
1 large box (4 cup size) or 2 small boxes (2 cup/400-500 ml size) Orange Jell-O
2 cups water
2 cups Tequila
Grenadine
cupcake pans
cupcake liners
I do a variation of [Margarita Jell-O] with Orange Jell-O and tequila. When making Orange Jell-O I use tequila for the 2 cups of "hot water", once it's mixed I add 2 cups cold water, pour into cupcake pans (with liners) and let set. Using a bit less cold water and pouring a splash of grenadine into the individual cups makes a nice sunrise effect

That takes me back to my college days. Don't use them over light colored carpet. I've had a few friends that have had to replace their carpet after a few people had a little too many :)

these are definitely delish. just be very careful. the one and only time i ever got alcohol poisining was after doing jello shots in high school. to this day i can't eat strawberry jello...actually i'm not particularly fond of any flavor of jello since that incident.
