4th Of July Jello Shots

These jello shots are some of my favorites to enjoy for Independence Day. They are so good and simple to make. Each one comes in a disposable shot cup which can make this the perfect party, BBQ, or Picnic treat. These shots are sure to be a hit and you will want to make them every year!

Key Ingredients You’ll Need

Jello: You will need blue jello and red jello for the top and bottom layers of the shot.

Liquor: You are going to need Berry Vodka for the blue layer, Malibu Rum for the white layer, and cherry vodka for the red layer.

Sweetened Condensed Milk: This will be used to add color to the white layer as well as give it a sweet flavor.

What Do 4th Of July Jello Shots Taste Like?

These shots have a combination of flavors. Each layer has its own unique flavor that pairs so well with the next. The main flavors of these shots are berry and cherry.

How Long Do 4th of July Jello Shots Last?

Jello shots can last for a while depending on how they are stored. If you get shot cups with lids, this will make storing them a lot easier. But, if not, I recommend storing them in an airtight container. This will allow the shots to last in the fridge for up to 10 days.
