Substitutions and Additions

  • Replace The Raspberry: If you can’t find the raspberry jello, any red colored jello will work. You can use strawberry, cherry, cranberry, or any other you prefer.
  • Which Wine: Most red wines will work in these jello shots. I think a medium or full-bodied wine, such as a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Rioja, or Pinot, will taste delicious.
  • Fresh Fruit Swap: If you prefer, you can garnish your shots with citrus fruit slices instead of berries, such as limes, lemons, and oranges.
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring tools
  • 2-Ounce shot glasses

Tips From Our Recipe Developer

  • I like to line up my shot glasses on a flat, firm, moveable surface like a tray or cookie sheet. This makes it easier to move them back and forth from the fridge.
  • Do not add the garnishes to your shots until you’re ready to serve them. They can be garnished for a couple of hours before serving, but do not leave them overnight or the garnishes will become gross, effectively ruining the entire shot. 
  • If you can’t find raspberry jello, you can always swap it out for another red jello, just so the color gets close enough.

Storage Tips

  • To Store: You can store your jello shots covered in the fridge for up to a week.
  • To Freeze: Do not freeze these jello shots!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I add more alcohol to my jello shots?

Be careful adding more alcohol than what the recipe calls for. This can cause the jello shots to remain liquid. If you like your jello shots a little softer, feel free to add a bit more brandy. 

Can I make my jello shots without alcohol?

Yes, it is easy to make it a jello shot mocktail! In place of the wine, use cranberry juice, cherry juice, pomegranate juice, or any dark cherry/berry juice. For the brandy, replace it with orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, or even lemon-lime soda.

How should I garnish my jello shots?

If you want to garnish your jello shots, slice the strawberries into chunks. Top each shot with whipped cream, and one of each fruit (blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry). You can also skip the whipped cream and simply top the shot with just the fruit.
