Plastic cups are a great way to reduce your clean-up time. You can use these to serve to your guest at a casual party or make some jello shots, depending on what kind of plastic cup you purchased. Red solo cups are excellent for serving drinks, while small souffle plastic cups are great for making jello shots.
Why are Jello Shots Popular?
Jello shots are easy to make. You can buy a gelatin packet in any grocery store. Choosing any flavor is easy since you can mix the gelatin powder with any liquid. Fruit flavors are the most popular, but you can also use other drinks depending on your taste.
Jello is a fun dessert to have. They jiggle and come in bright, vibrant colors. Many people often associate jello with childhood memories, but now you can reminisce with a twist!
Being able to choose the colors means you can customize how you want your jello shot to look. You can add solid ingredients like fruit or candy and garnish it with some powdered sugar or edible glitter.
Jello Shot Ideas
This is a pretty simple recipe. Mix different colored gelatin powder in separate glasses of hot water and let them cool. Add a splash of vodka to each mixture. Pour in the first color in the plastic cup and let it freeze or harden, then pour in the following color, and keep doing that until you get a rainbow-colored jello shot.
To make a sweet candy jello shot, you need to infuse your favorite candy into a bottle of vodka. Pour jello powder into hot water, and remember to use powder similar in color to your candy. Add a splash of your infused vodka and pour it into your plastic cup to let it freeze.
We all know we can’t put ice in champagne because this will dilute the drink. But what if we have cold champagne jello shots to chill your sparkling drink. Add gelatin powder in hot water and let it mix.
In another mixing glass, pour champagne and ginger ale and stir together. Combine the liquor mixture and gelatin mix and pour it into the plastic cup. Add slices of your favorite fruit to pair with champagne and lay it in the container. Freeze and add the jello to your bubbly.
