Orange Layer

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 small package Orange Jell-O 3 oz.
  • 1 cup Tequila

Cherry Layer

  • 1 cup boiling water I added ½ cherry juice, ½ water for this layer
  • 1 small package of Cherry Jell-O 3 oz.
  • 1 cup Tequila
  • Maraschino Cherries for tops of shots


  • Place shot glasses on baking sheets and spray with non-stick spray.

Orange Layer

  • Boil water for Orange Layer. Dissolve Orange Jell-O into boiled water. Add tequila and stir.
  • Fill jell-o mix into each shot cup up to ⅔rds full. Chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
  • Repeat the Jell-O making process by mixing the second layer of Cherry Jell-O, tequila and boiling water/cherry mixture.
  • Pull out the set cups from the refrigerator. Pour the second layer into the cups. Place back in the refrigerator and let set, just enough to hold the next layer for 15 minutes and place the cherry on top of Cherry Jell-O layer by pressing down lightly and put back in fridge.
  • After the last layer has been poured, let the final product set for at least one hour before serving.


You can substitute Vodka, Rum or whatever liquor you would like if Tequila isn't your cup of choice.
Makes 22 - 24 Jello Shots
