Margarita Jello Shots of the Jello Masters

"Inspiration for this shot comes from the Jello Maven himself, Chaz Bosten Baden, and his archive of Jello shot recipes at I have altered it to suit my tastes and used many other shots from his site, having since been named the "Jello Shot Master" by my friends."

Ready In:
32 shots




  • Mix boiling water and Jello. Stir for a minute until dissolved. Add rest of ingredients, stir.
  • Pour into small paper dixie cups, cool on one or two cookies sheets stacked in the refrigerator.
  • Unless you use ice and water for the cold water, allow 5 or more hours for Jello to cool and set.
  • For every party I throw, I'll make this recipe and one more from Hazel's site to satisfy the partygoers.

Questions & Replies

  1. I have 2 small boxes of Jell-O, no sugar added lime flavour jello. Each will make 4 servings if combined with 1 cup each cold and boiling water. The weight on the box says 10.3 grams (.36 oz) I planned to use them to make your jello shots but your recipe says use 1 (6 ounce) box lime Jell-O gelatin (large box). Am I misunderstanding or will my 2 small boxes work? Thanks, Pat


  1. Simply amazing....I halved the recipe b/c they were just for a few of us, and I wanted to have a few other flavors. I could have made them ALL from this recipe and would have been happy!!!
  2. This recipe was fantastic. I usually hate jello shots b/c they taste like bad cough medicine but this was perfection. You could taste the alcohol but the lime jello really cut the severity of it. Everyone at the party raved about them and I became the most loved guest. THANK YOU!
  3. These are AWESOME!!! We make them for our annual Cinco de Mayo Party and we always get requests for us to bring them to other parties!!! Right before we serve the shots, we add salt on top of the jello, it really makes it a Margarita!!!
  4. Lovely!!!
  5. Can not wait to get blasted drunk off these at my birthday


Raleigh is my current home base, but I am from Philly and have also lived in South Florida. I love pastries and baking but I also do lots of fun shortcut dinners.
