Classy Jello Shots for Grown-Ups

By

Jello Shots are more closely tied to parties with pong tables and sticky floors than they are to parties with passed apps and RSVPs. But here at Supercall we believe that Jello Shots deserve an elevated place far from the frat houses of the world. We’ve turned some of our favorite drinks into high-end Jello Shots that any host or hostess could be proud to serve at their cocktail party, right alongside their mini quiches and polite conversation. Here, seven fancy Jello shots that reimagine what “classy” means.

Tart and sweet with an herbaceous kick from juniper-y gin, these are a perfect, jiggly recreation of the Prohibition-era classic.

No drink evokes the idea of a classy party quite like sparkling wine. But who wants to deal with all those Champagne flutes, bottle popping and effervescent overflow? Mixing a bottle of sparkling rosé with grapefruit liqueur and some gelatin, and you eliminate the possibility of any Champagne related hassles.

The Essentials

sparkling rosé
condensed milk
gelatin

No cocktail was bigger in the first half of the 2010s than the Negroni. Its popularity brought bitter Campari to a whole new generation of drinkers. And this semi-solid ode to the bright red drink looks and tastes just like the original.

The Essentials

gin
Campari
unflavored gelatin

When you think of brunch and Jell-O together, it’s probably as part of a buffet flanked by heat lamps and stacks of warm, generic plates. But get a batch of our Bloody Mary Jello Shots together and you’ll have an entirely new outlook on J-E-L-L-O next to your French toast and omelets. You don’t have to prepare yours inside celery stalks, but we think it completes the experience. You don’t want an ungarnished Bloody Mary, do you?

The Essentials

Bloody Mary mix
unflavored gelatin
Vodka

One of the first drinks to breakthrough as part of the 2000s cocktail renaissance, the Moscow Mule and its gingery, tart flavors are accessible to anyone—even more so as a Jello Shot. And we don’t want to tell you your business, but serving them in these Moscow Mule shot glasses wouldn’t hurt.

The Essentials

ginger beer
unflavored gelatin
vodka

Like a boozy Coke bottle candy, these Cuba Libre shots take the typical party Rum and Coke and turn it into something fun yet worthy of bearing the Cuban classic’s name. Just be careful when you’re heating the Coke: The cola can quickly boil over into a sugary mess on the stove.

The Essentials

Coca-Cola
unflavored gelatin
rum

If you’re looking for something a little more like dessert, look no further than this take on the classic after dinner drink. If you’ve never had coffee jello topped with whipped cream, you have no idea what you’re missing.

The Essentials

hot coffee
irish whiskey
Cinnamon Syrup
