Mistletoe Jell-O Shots Are Exactly What Your Christmas Was Missing


Psh, forget waiting under the mistletoe! This mistletoe Jell-o shot recipe is really easy to make and is perfect for your next holiday soiree! You can make them with whatever alcohol you prefer, but I personally recommend sticking to vodka. Happy holidays (and happy Jell-O Shot..ing…)


  • Lime wedge, for rimming glasses
  • Red sanding sugar, for rimming glasses
  • 1 c. water
  • 2 (3-oz.) packet lime Jell-o mix
  • 8 oz. vodka, chilled
  • whipped cream, for garnish
  • Mint leaves, for garnish
  • Red Hots, for garnish
Get a set of shot glasses and run the lime wedge around the rim of each, then dip the glasses into sanding sugar. Bring water to a boil in a pot or saucepan and, once boiling, stir in a pack of lime Jell-o mix, and stir completely until the sugar has completely dissolved. Turn off the heat, and pour in vodka, tequila or whatever alcohol you prefer, mixing until it’s all well combined. Pour into a small pitcher or glass measuring cup (so it’s easier to pour into shot glasses) and pour the mixture into each of your prepared shot glasses. Place them in the refrigerator for about 2 hours or until the Jell-o sets. Top it with whipped cream, mint leaves and red hot candies and serve immediately!
