If there is ever a time that calls for color coordinating Jell-O shots, it’s a football party. It’s an afternoon spent with friends, yelling at the TV, indulging in cheese dip and wings, and hoping that your guys come out ahead. Now that you know how to make an alcoholic treat that celebrates your team’s colors, you might just be the one who wins the day.


Things You’ll Need

24 to 28 disposable plastic ramekins with lids
2 colors (3oz each) of Jell-O
2 cups chilled vodka
2 to 3 cups boiling water
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (if making a white layer)
1 cup chilled pina colada mix (if making a white layer)


Step 1: Set Up a Tray
Add ramekins to a rimmed baking sheet for easy transport.


Step 2: Boil Water and Jell-O
Add the color Jell-O (3 ounces) you want to use for the first layer in a large measuring cup (for ease of poring) or bowl. Stir in 1 cup of boiling water until dissolved.


Step 3: Add Vodka
Stir in the chilled vodka.


Step 4: Pour into Cups
Add about 1/2 inch of Jell-O to each cup. Chill until set, about 2 hours.


Step 5: Make the White Layer (Optional)
If making a white layer (Jell-O doesn’t offer a white flavor), try this: add the unflavored gelatin in a large measuring cup (for ease of poring) or bowl. Stir in 1 cup of boiling water until dissolved.


Step 6: Add the Pina Colada Mix
Add the chilled pina colada mix, stir until well combined.


Step 7: Pour Over the First Layer
Pour about 1/2 inch over the chilled first layer, chill until set. Unflavored gelatin will set a bit faster than typical Jell-O and should be ready in about 30 minutes. Do not proceed until it has set.


Step 8: Mix the Third Color
Add the remaining color Jell-O (3 ounces) to a large measuring cup (for ease of poring) or bowl. Stir in 1 cup of boiling water until dissolved.


Step 9: Add Vodka
Stir in the chilled vodka.

Step 10: Pour in the Final Layer
Pour into the cups until about 1/8 inch from the top of the cup. Chill until set. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
