The Best Homemade Boozy Gummy Bears

Boozy gummy bears are easy to make and can be made in your favorite flavor!

These gummy bears are a delicious boozy treat and so easy to make! Prep time is about 10 minutes and they can be ready to eat in under three hours. You’ve probably seen vodka soaked gummy bears, which of course are also easy to make. Literally just soaking a bowl of gummy bears with vodka. However, you have to soak them overnight, up to 24 hours, to really get the vodka in there.

Enter, the homemade boozy gummy bear! I came up with this idea when my son and I were making regular gummy bears one day using jello. Since I make jello shots often, I thought why not try it as a gummy?! What’s great about the homemade version is that you can come with so many flavor varieties and really customize it to your favorites!

I used raspberry flavored Jello for these shots and the flavor really pops! You can taste the vodka a little bit, but it’s not an overwhelming flavor. Basically you get the raspberry flavor, with a little bite of vodka at the end.

How to serve boozy gummy bears

I think a great way to serve these would be to add a handful into shot cups so everyone can grab a “shot” worth of gummy bears! This recipe is for about 50 bears so if you make it for a party you’ll need to make several batches. Each bear holds about 3ml in liquid form, so I’d estimate about 10-12 bears equal a one ounce shot.

They are a bit tacky and stick together so keep that in mind when serving them. Keep the gummies in the fridge until ready to serve. They’ll stay good a few days if you cover them, after that they start to shrink down as they dry out.

After making the mixture use a dropper to carefully squirt it into the gummy bear molds. A lot of molds come with eye droppers to use but the ones I have did not. Instead I used a medicine syringe and it worked wonderfully.

These little guys pack a punch so beware! They are purely alcohol, no other liquid goes into making these. But they are so sweet it would be easy to eat a whole bunch without realizing it! Be sure to clearly keep them separate from other candy so your kids aren’t tempted.

Tequila Jello Shots

These are genuinely the best tequila jello shots I’ve ever had. Combing tequila and jello provides for one awesome and fun drink you won’t be able to resist.


1 packet unflavored gelatin (or 1 tablespoon)

salt and lime for the rim


  • Lay small plastic shot glasses out onto a baking tray.
  • Pour the cold water into a pot. Stir to combine and let sit for 5 minutes to allow the gelatin to bloom.
  • Heat the water to a boil, whisk the allow the gelatin to melt.
  • Add the sugar, lime juice, and tequila. Stir to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into the shot glasses. Put them in the fridge and let them sit for 2-3 hours to set.
  • Optional: use food coloring to change the color of the shots.
  • Remove from the fridge and rim with salt, garnish with a lime wedge.
  • Serve chilled.


  • Using plain gelatin and white tequila will give you a clear colored jello shot. If you desire green or any other color, you can add a couple drops of food coloring into the mix. Alternatively, you could also use a box of flavored and colored jello but be sure to follow the instructions on the box on how much powder and liquid you should use.

How To Make Jell-O Shots

When it comes to cocktails, it doesn't get much easier than Jell-O shots. In their most simple form, they are only three ingredients: jell-o powder, hot water, and alcohol. Below, we'll walk you through the process so your shots are the best they can be!

Gather Your Ingredients & Supplies

To make your shots you will need: a measuring cup, a whisk, small plastic (or glass) cups, and something to boil water with. For ingredients, all you need is your favorite type of Jell-O, water, and the alcohol of your choice.

Step 1: Dissolve Jell-O

Fill your measuring cup with 1 cup of boiling water, then add the Jell-O powder. Whisk together until jell-o powder has completely dissolved into water.

Step 2: Add Your Alcohol

One of the biggest mistakes people make when making jell-o shots is adding the boiling water and alcohol together over heat. You want to make sure your jell-o mixture is cool enough that the alcohol doesn't burn off when it's added. Adding alcohol off-heat into a large measuring glass not only protects the alcohol, you can also measure it on the spot! You can add whatever alcohol you like best. If you need some inspiration, check out our 100+ favorite jell-o shot recipes. There's something in there for everyone. 😎

Step 3: Pour Into Cups

Once you've whisked in the alcohol, all that's left is pouring them into shot glasses! Both plastic or glass shot glasses work, though we don't know anyone with a shot glass collection big enough to accommodate a whole batch! You could also go the unconventional route and serve your shots in fruit like these pink lemonade jell-o shots, or get really crazy and serve them in PICKLES like our famous pickleback jell-o shots. Place your shots in the refrigerator to firm up for 3 to 4 hours and serve!

This strawberry daiquiri jello shots recipe is really easy to make. You are basically substituting the alcohol and lime juice for the cold water portion of the standard jello recipe.

Start by pouring the jello crystals into a bowl.

Then add 1 cup of boiling water to the jello and mix until all of the sugar has dissolved.

Add 1/2 cup of white rum, 1/4 cup of strawberry pucker and 1/4 cup of lime margarita mix (I use Jose Cuervo mix) to the bowl and mix again.

Spread out your jello shot cups on a cookie sheet. While not totally necessary, the cookie sheet catches any spills and makes the jello shots much easier to transport to the refrigerator.

Pour the mixture into the jello shot cups.

To prevent condensation from building up on the inside of the jello shot cups, let them sit until they have cooled completely (about 15 minutes) before putting the lids on. This isn’t a critical step since the condensation doesn’t hurt the jello shots, but they look better without it.

Refrigerate until set, about 2 to 4 hours.


  • If you don’t have strawberry pucker, you can replace it with more white rum.
  • Instead of the margarita mix, you can use 2 Tablespoons of lime juice and 2 Tablespoons of cold water.
  • If you want a really sweet strawberry daiquiri taste, replace the lime margarita mix with strawberry daiquiri mix.

Strawberry and Champagne Jello Shots Are More Dangerous Than They Look

At your next romantic brunch, you could make a toast to true love with a plain ol&rsquo flute of bubbly and a sad, sunken strawberry, or you could get rowdy with these gorgeous, grown-up Champagne jello shots. Champagne jello shots&mdashor jello jigglers, if you prefer&mdashhave completely taken over Pinterest. I don&rsquot hate it, but I am, however, surprised at the sad lack of rose (like the flower) and rosé (as in pink sparkling wine) jello shots. Oh, hello, rosé rose jello shots. Trust that this jello shot recipe ain&rsquot anything like the ones you remember from your dorm room days. They&rsquore a boozy masterpiece that&rsquoll have you swooning (and quite possibly swaying).

This recipe for strawberry and Champagne jello shots takes three days, but I swear it&rsquos not that time-consuming. And even if it were, it&rsquod be 100 percent worth the wow. Just set aside a few minutes for prep before bed, and wake up to these pretty-in-pink brunch party treats. First, soak strawberries in rosé overnight to make strawberry-infused Champagne and Champagne-infused strawberries&mdashboth of which are used in this rose jello shot recipe. On the second night, prepare the gelatin mixture as you usually would when making jello shots and include rose simple syrup to add sweetness in place of granulated sugar and fresh edible rose petals (if you&rsquore feeling fancy) for a vibrant garnish.

Now you&rsquore probably thinking, Those are some expensive, bougie-ass jello shots&mdashbut they are not at all. I happily left my neighborhood liquor store double-fisting bottom-shelf rum and a $15 bottle of rosé. Opt for the cheapest bottles to save a few bucks, but if you can afford to ball out, by all means, do just that, too.

But beware: No matter which price range you stick to, these suckers will make it extremely hard for you to predict when you&rsquove had just enough. They&rsquore strong and sneaky. With a decent amount of rum and a double dose of strawberry-infused Champagne mixed into the gelatin, you&rsquore bound to get the party started early and quickly. Serve these easy Champagne jello shots at your Galentine&rsquos brunch, or treat yourself and your special someone to boozy breakfast in bed.

In a small bowl, combine the cold water and liquor. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to reach a consistent temperature.

In a separate bowl, place the gelatin, and slowly add the boiling water. Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

Pour the gelatin mixture into the water and liquor mixture. Stir well. If using food coloring to change or enhance the color, add it now.

Pour the mixture into shot glasses, molds, or a baking pan.

Refrigerate until the liquid sets—at least 2 hours, but overnight is recommended. Serve cold and enjoy.

For Fun Shots

Here are a few expert tips on how to make the best Jell-O shots:

  • Small, plastic shot cups are perfect for serving because a good squeeze pops the shot into your mouth. To make this easier, you could spray some cooking oil into the cups, or rub them with a tiny drop of vegetable oil. This won't affect the taste.
  • If making these a couple days ahead of time and/or taking these to a party, buy shot cups with lids to protect your creations and store in the fridge until serving.
  • If you serve the shots in small glasses, it's best to provide miniature spoons so guests can dig out the gelatin.
  • To make a bigger Jell-O creation and easily unmold it, reduce the liquid volume slightly. Try a test batch with all the liquids cut in half or double up on the gelatin.

Customize Your Shots

There are many things you can do to customize your Jell-O shots. Experiment with any of these ideas and be sure to start out with a test batch before scaling up the recipe:

  • Mix and match flavored gelatin: Use it to replace or enhance a certain flavor. In the margarita Jell-O shot, the lime-flavored gelatin gives a nice boost to the lime juice, but switching to strawberry gelatin creates an imitation of the strawberry margarita.
  • Unflavored gelatin: Plain gelatin usually comes in 1/4-ounce envelopes with 2 1/2 teaspoons of gelatin, which should gel the 2 cups of liquid used in this recipe. Use unflavored gelatin when you want other flavors to shine. Some of the shots that use unflavored gelatin can look dull and boring. While the mix is still liquid, change or enhance the color by adding small amounts of food coloring until you get the desired hue.
  • Flavored booze: Use flavored vodka, rum, or tequila to add to the flavor of your Jell-O shots.
  • Color by flavor: Distinguish flavored shots by their color. Use yellow for a banana daiquiri, red for a planter's punch, and blue for a blue Hawaiian.
  • Rainbow shot: To make layers, begin by making one flavor of gelatin and fill cups 1/2 or 1/3 of the way full. Chill these until it's almost set—about 1 to 1 1/2 hours—before adding the next flavor. Repeat until you have completed the layers.
  • Fruit molds: The rinds of citrus fruits are fun molds for shots. Cut lemons, limes, or oranges in half and remove all of the fruit, leaving the peel intact. Fill this "bowl" with the gelatin mixture and allow it to set. Cut each rind into thirds or quarters for single-serve pieces.
  • Fruity bits: Add small fruit pieces to the gelatin before it sets up. Berries and pitted cherries are the perfect accessories.
  • Sweeten it up: If the shot is too tart, add simple syrup in lieu of a portion of the cold water—1 ounce or less of syrup should do.

If you want to experiment, you can transform almost any of your favorite cocktail recipes into a jelly shot. The key is to maintain the original cocktail's proportions while keeping the volume of cold liquid at 8 ounces.

Why Not Use a Higher-Proof Alcohol?

Even if you'd like boozier shots, resist the urge to use a higher-proof liquor such as Everclear. Your best bet is to add a little more of an 80-proof liquor and cut a bit of the cold water. You'll want to keep the alcohol content in check, for a few reasons:

  • A clear vodka tastes better than Everclear.
  • Often, people will have a few Jell-O shots along with other alcohol, so using Everclear in the shots can easily send a person over the edge.
  • If you use a higher-proof liquor, you may have some issues getting the shots to set up, as liquor has a different freezing point than water, so you need to maintain a balance between the alcohol and the other liquids.

How Strong Is a Jello Shot?

If you make the basic Jell-O shot with a single 80-proof liquor, the alcohol content comes out to be about 12 percent ABV (24 proof). That's equivalent to the average wine. While a couple of 1-ounce shots may not get you drunk, overindulging on these shots can happen more quickly than you might expect.

Jell-O Shot

Just thinking about Jell-O Shots probably reminds you of a college party or other event where cheap beer dominated and trash cans doubled as punch bowls. But who says Jell-O Shots have to end after college? These tried-and-true party drinks are fun, easy to make and instant crowd-pleasers. And, with a little effort, you can create better-than-usual shots featuring quality liquor and complementary flavors, rather than grain alcohol and a flash of neon.

When making Jell-O Shots, you just need three ingredients: gelatin, water and liquor. Any flavor of gelatin will work, but do not use the unflavored variety, or you’ll be the unwitting creator of sad, tasteless shots. Vodka and white rum are both great options for your alcohol, although other spirits, like gin, whiskey, tequila and brandy are all fair game. Vodka is the most neutral, so it will allow the Jell-O to shine, while other spirits will infuse more of their own essence into the final product.

If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even make Jell-O Shot cocktails, like a Whiskey Sour, Margarita or Daiquiri. In that case, you need to match the cocktail ingredients with the liquid requirement in the recipe. For example, if you’re making a Daiquiri and using one package of gelatin, the rum, lime juice, and simple syrup should maintain their proper ratios while keeping the total volume of non-boiling liquid (cocktail plus cold water) to eight ounces.

Jell-O Shots are a blank canvas for creativity, so mix it up with different colors, flavors and shapes. Your friends will love them.

How do you take jello shots?

If you’re using the type of cups pictured here, run your finger around the outer edge of the shot and then suck it out of the cup.

Now they have these squeezeable jello shot cups and they’re are pretty awesome! You don’t have to get your fingers dirty and they’re easy to squeeze. No fighting the plastic to get your shot!

Love the idea of jello shot syringes? Me too! I even made Halloween jello shots in some. The thing here is that you need 2-ounce syringes. They’re big. Like bigger than you’d normally expect, but they are the same amount of jello as these little cups. You could always buy the smaller syringes, you’ll just need more of them to get a buzz.
