Champagne Jello Shots FAQs
Vodka and white rum are great alternatives for jello shots.
You can also use gin, whiskey, tequila, and brandy.
However, vodka will allow the jello to shine and taste delicious.
Does it matter how much alcohol you put in Jello shots?
For the jello shots to set properly, you can only add ½ cup of the liquor that you are going to use.
The maximum is 2/3 cup, which will still allow the jello to have the correct consistency as it sets.
Anything more than that will not give the jello the right consistency.
How long before a party should you make Jello shots?
Allow the jello shots to set for a maximum of four hours. The jello will have to be set in the fridge for 2 hours.
But if you happen to make layered jello shots, each layer takes about 30 minutes to set before you put on another layer.
So you have to take into consideration how you want your jello shots to come out before the party.
How many jello shots get you drunk?
This depends on the person’s alcohol tolerance.
The jello shots contain a small amount of alcohol in them, so 1 cup of booze will take about 4 jello shots. You do the math.
Can you use ice cube trays for Jello shots?
