1 Large Box Orange Jell-O or Jolly Rancher Green Apple Jello

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

    Trying these for a party

  • Jennifer Burkett says:

    I was wondering if this would taste good with apple jello has anyone tried

  • Courtney says:

    I see the comment about trying this with cherry jello but I’m just curious if you can taste the Orange flavor from the jello in the original recipe? Or does it taste just like fireball?

      Hi Courtney
      I have not tried these so I can’t help you there — but hopefully someone can help with this question. If anyone has made these by the recipe, please let us know. Thanks

    What color do these turn out? Could I add a few drops of red food coloring? Trying to be festive for a Christmas party :-)

    • admin says:

      Hi Karen
      If i remember correctly, they were not red — but sure just add food coloring. It would work just fine and not hurt the taste at all.

  • Heather says:

    How long does it take them to set up?

    • admin says:

      Hi Heather
      Shouldn’t take any longer than jello. Give them a couple hours check that they are set. :)
      Depends on how big they are.
      Thanks for question.

    How do you think it would taste using Rum Chata? Im making jello worms and other recipes call for whipping cream to make them “cloudy”, so was thinking the Rum Chata would be a nice switch up.

      Hi Jan

    can use sugarfree jello!

  • Brandi says:

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

    • admin says:

      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.


  • Brooke says:

    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.

    • admin says:

      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,

  • sue says:

    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?

    • admin says:

      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.
