TIPS AND SECRETS FOR MAKING THE BEST WATERMELON JELLO SHOTS
- You can substitute different fruits, but avoid kiwi or pineapple, which contain enzymes that will prevent the jello from setting properly.
- For alcoholic jello shots, the best liquor choices are your favorite rum or vodka. Some other options are tequila or triple sec.
- For non-alcoholic jello shots, replace the liquor with a clear juice concentrate like apple juice or cranberry juice.
- The recipe includes 1/2 cup of spirits, which is 4 ounces. You can adjust the amount to suit your crowd without affecting the recipe.
- Before you place in the fridge to set, try to pop or remove any bubbles that may have risen to the surface.
