I know what you're thinking: "Really, Matt, Jell-O shots?" Consider it an ode to spring breaks past. And on a stick, no less. Beach and suntan lotion are optional.

Serves a party
Serves a party


  • 3 (6-ounce) packages lime or strawberry Jell-O
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tbsp triple sec


Special equipment: 80 cocktail picks*

Line a 9-by-9-inch baking dish with plastic wrap.

Combine Jell-O powder and 2 1/2 cups boiling water in a large bowl and stir to dissolve. Add tequila, lime juice, and triple sec and stir until well combined. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and refrigerate at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours.

Once Jell-O has set completely, turn out onto a clean surface and peel off plastic wrap. Cut into 1-inch cubes and serve on cocktail picks. Cheers!

Cook's Note

* Lose the plastic cups. Cocktail picks make these jiggly cubes easier to eat.
