Jell-O shots can make any party a whole lot more fun. They combine the deliciousness of sugar with the fun of alcohol. What's not to like about that?! The best part? It's not hard to make them, especially since the Internet is filled with instructions for how to make Jell-O shots that make your guests love coming to your house.

For most Jell-O shot recipes, it's as easy as combining your favorite alcohol (champagne, vodka, gin, or tequila) with some water and a great Jell-O flavor. Or you could get super fancy and add some edible gold leaf and maraschino cherries. It's up to you!

Remember that just because they're called "shots," that doesn't mean you have to take them out of a boring shot glass. You can create fun ones with fish-shaped candy molds, or even pour shots into Ring Pops. Honestly, the hardest part of making Jell-O shots is waiting for them to cool in the refrigerator.
