Destined to be a hit with guests and family, these gyrating shots will bring about an extreme amount of holiday cheer. From Eggnog jello shots made to look like Santa hats, to gelatin aperitifs to accompany your holiday eating binge, these five jello shots are destined to become a new Christmas tradition.
5 Best Holiday Jello Shots
While this recipe seems like something your crazy cat lady of an aunt would bring to Christmas dinner—we assure you that it’s the perfect boozy holiday treat. Somewhere between a fruit salad and a jello shot, this dessert is made with rum, cranberry, mandarin oranges, pineapple slices, and both raspberry and orange Jell-O. For a particularly nostalgic Christmas, serve this edible tipple with your coziest pajamas and a late night viewing of A Christmas Story.
If you want your holiday to be a rager—rather than a somber, “adult” affair—make a round of these wintry, cinnamon-flavored whiskey-fueled shots. Super easy (and inexpensive) to make, your boozy Christmas is only a bottle of Fireball and a package of Jell-O away.
These savory jello shots are the perfect accompaniment to a proper holiday brunch spread. Made in celery sticks instead of shot glasses, these piquant Bloody Marys in-miniature could easily replace the bagels and shmaltz as the holiday breakfast centerpiece.
Bloody Mary mix
This bitter, jiggly variation on the classic is the perfect holiday shot to take right before a heavy meal. Not only will they whet your appetite—and help you digest your assortment of all-day holiday grazing—they’ll instantaneously spread holiday cheer amongst your guests, and family.
This decadently creamy cocktail is an absolute must during the holiday season. And while you could make your eggnog the traditional way, these shootable versions are less filling, boozier and way more fun for guests. Just make sure that you get holiday-themed molds to make your Eggnog jello shots extra festive.
