Jell’OOOOoOOOOOOOOOo Shots (in ghost voice). That is what Devin wanted to name this post! So happy I get to marry this guy. Happy DAM Good Drink Wednesday! I thought I would bring it back to our college days and make some Jell-O shots. I don’t know why Halloween makes me reminisce about Jello-O shots but I’ve always craved these every year.
To help prepare you all for the holiday house party weekend we have a Caramel Apple Jello-O Shot and Vampire’s Mouthwash. Muha ha ha… What is Vampire’s Mouthwash you ask??? Well, it’s store-bought strawberry Jell-O, rum, and mint extract. Basically a strawberry mojito! Devin also found these amazing shot syringes which made the strawberry mojito Jell-O shot Vampire’s Mouthwash. Super fun and perfect for any Halloween party!
Caramel Apple Jell-O Shots –
1 packet of gelatin (try to find an Apple Jell-O packet if you can)
8 oz Apple Pucker or Apple Liquor
8 oz Apple Juice (you can also use water if you want to cut down the sweetness)
Caramel Syrup (garnish)
Coarse Sea Salt (garnish)
1 Strawberry Jell-O packet
1 cup water
1 cup rum
1/4 tsp mint extract
Caramel Apple Jell-O Shots – Follow instructions on the gelatin packet but replace half the water with apple pucker or Apple liquor. You will end up with one cup of water and one cup of Apple Pucker. Stir well until well combined. Pour into desired containers. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Once they are solid take them out and drizzle the caramel syrup on top. We highly recommend garnishing with coarse sea salt.
Vampire’s Mouthwash – Follow instructions of the Jell-O packet BUT replace the half the water required with rum. You will end up with one cup of water and one cup of rum. Add the mint extract and stir until well combined. Pour into desired containers. We used the shot syringes. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
