Jell-O shots are colorful confections that pack a punch and are a fun addition to any party.

A general recipe for how to make Jell-O shots is 1 cup of boiling water, 3 ounces of Jell-O powder and 2/3 thirds cup of liquor. Combine the water and Jell-O and mix until the Jell-O dissolves. Mix in your alcohol and then pour the mixture into two-ounce cups. Refrigerate until it's set and serve at your party.

Colors and flavors can be mixed and matched for endless variety. Mimic some of your favorite traditional cocktails and desserts or create something completely new.

One of the most fun cocktails to drink also translates well to Jell-O. Combine lime Jell-O with tequila and a little triple sec. Before serving your margarita Jell-O shots, rim the edges of the cups with salt or sugar, or a mixture of both, and garnish with a slice of lime.
