1 Large Box Orange Jell-O
2 Cups Boiling Apple Cider


2 Cups Fireball Whiskey




Put Jello into heat proof bowl
Pour in boiling Apple Cider — being sure to stir until Jello is completely dissolved — around 2 minutes or so


Add the 2 cups of Fireball Whiskey — If you don’t like the shots to strong, you can boil 3 cups of cider and use only one cup of the whiskey.
Stir until well blended
Arrange empty shot cups on serving trays of some kind — to make it easy to carry to refrigerator when they are ready to be chilled.


Carefully pour ingredients into 1 oz. or 2 oz. paper or plastic souffle cups of your choice


Place into refrigerator until set

    Can apple juice be used instead of cider? How many does it make?

      Hi Brandi

      I think Apple Juice would be fine. Just a little taste difference, not much. As for how many it makes – well you’ll have to do the math. It’s 32 oz. of liquids – so depends on what size cups you use.
      Thanks for stopping by, and for the comment.

    Will this work with hot water instead of cider? I’m worried about adding all that extra sugar…Jello has enough sugar as it is.

      Hi Brooke
      You could use water, however the taste would not be the same. Maybe you can use a cup of cider and a cup of water? or at least 1/2 cup of cider to get the flavor. All you can do is give it a try, and you will find out :) Let me know how it turns out. I am curious if you do use just water – how the shots would taste. Pretty good I would imagine. Thanks for great question
      Take Care,

    Has anyone tried these? When looking up recipes, I found another that called for 2 cups cider and 1 cup fireball using a small box of orange jello. I would think that would be too much liquid in order for them to gel but response said it worked. Normally a small box of jello would be 2 cups liquid. Any thoughts?

      Hi Sue

      Yes this is correct — large boxes of jello —> uses 4 total cups of liquids and small boxes uses 2 cups of liquids.
      Thanks for question.
