The quintessential tequila Jello Shot, this jiggly little beauty perfectly captures the original delicious cocktail. Made with tequila, unflavored gelatin, lime and simple syrup, this shooter couldn’t be easier to concoct. It even has a salt rim for garnish to give it that extra savory oomph. Just be sure to double the batch for a party because these green-hued jigglers are guaranteed to disappear quickly.

Bright, vivaciously hued and jiggly beyond belief, these Jello Shots are a must for any partay. Just like the classic cocktail, they combine the tang of orange juice with the tart fruitiness of grenadine (here replicated with either pomegranate or cherry Jell-O). Watch out—they’re so flavorful that it’s hard to taste the alcohol at all.
