Seahawks Jello Shot Recipe:
It's game day, baby! Woo-hoo! What does that mean? It means it's time for SEAHAWKS JELLO SHOTS! It's a little time consuming, but super easy and super cool. Here's what you'll need:

Ingredients:
3 oz Berry Blue Jello
3 oz Lime Jello
2 Packets Knox Gelatine
2-1/2 cups Vodka
2-1/2 cups Boiling Water
1 cup Pina Colada Mixer (such as Mr. and Mrs. T's)
5-10 drops of Blue Food Coloring (optional, but makes to colors darker like Hawks Colors)
5-10 drops of Green Food Coloring (optional, but makes to colors darker like Hawks Colors)
25-28 Jello Shot Cups/Lids

Yield: 25-28 Jello Shots
Time to Make: about 3-1/2 hours (includes time for Jello to set up)






Directions:
 - Chill your vodka and pina colada mix. Set Jello Shot Cups on a cookie sheet for easy transport.

First Layer
 - Following the Blue and Green Layer directions below, make blue layer first and chill for approximately 1 hour (or until set).


The right cup is pulling the blue up through the white layer






 - After set, follow the White Layer directions below and pour on top of the blue. Chill for approximately one hour (or until set). If the white layer starts to 'pull' the blue layer up into it (see photo to right) don't worry. You won't really see it in the end product.

 - After set, follow the Blue and Green Layer directions below, make the green layer and pour on top of the white. Chill for approximately 1 hour (or until set).

 -  Put lids on top of cups and enjoy within 24-48 hours.


For the Blue and Green Layers:
In a microwave safe container, heat 1 cup water for three minutes (or until almost
Mixing the Blue Layer
boiling) in microwave. Pour 3 ounces Jello in hot water, stirring until  fully dissolved (about 1 minute). Add 5 - 10 drops food coloring (green food coloring in Lime Jello and blue food coloring in Berry Blue Jello) to water. Stir in 1 cup chilled Vodka. Pour an even amount into each jello cup. Follow directions above.





For the White Layer:

They look a little green in the photo, but they are green, white, and blue!
In a microwave safe container, heat 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vodka for three minutes (or until almost boiling) in microwave. Carefully and slowly (it will boil over if you don't pour slow!) pour 2 packets Knox Gelatine in hot water, stirring until  fully dissolved (about 1 minute). Add 1 cup chilled pina colada mixer. Pour an even amount into each jello cup. Follow directions above.

  2. Where did you buy the cups with the lids?

    1. cups and lids are available and cheap at Cash & Carry

      Delete
    2. In addition to Cash & Carry, you can usually find them at any party store or at BevMo.

    3. Ah darn. I went to 4 stores today and the smallest clear cups I could find were 9oz. But of course I live over the mountains in Eburg. Oh well, they'll do.

      Thanks for the recipe! GO HAWKS!!!!

  3. Cash and Carry has the cups/lids.

  4. Does it have to be vodka? Could you sub any clear alcohol?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Any clear alcohol is fine. I just used vodka because it went with all three flavors and it is typically liked by most people.

      Delete
  5. I was able to get 125 Jello Shot cups w/ lids on Amazon for $8.10 (Free shipping w/ Prime)

  6. You can get cups/lids at Costco, or Walmart even!! Or any restaurant supply store.

    1. Another great place to get them is at United Grocers/Cash and Carry if there is one in your area. I got a big bottle of the Pina Colada mix there is well for less than $4.00. Go Seahawks!!

  7. Can these be made in advance, say on Thursday-they'd be double-wrapped w/Saran wrap.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Pam. They can, although they won't be quite as fresh. They may end up with a little bit of a firmer top on them. If you can hold off until Friday, that would be best, but they will be okay if you need to make them Thursday.

      Delete
    2. Thank you. I sort of figured that this would be your answer. I have to be out of town on Friday and half of Saturday. Could I make part of it on Saturday night-ie, let the first layer settle, then do the rest on Sunday before the game?

      Delete
    3. That's actually what I typically do. Or make them throughout the day Saturday as I have time. Good luck!

  8. Do they transport well, if I keep them in a cooler?-- Brenda

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For sure! I actually just put them in a little paper bag, drive to wherever I am going, and put them in the fridge at the house I am going to when I get there. It's just jello, so it will be fine. Stack them using the lids and they'll transport well.

  9. What a cute idea! Could you omit the middle pina colada layer? Would that effect anything?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you! You could, but there wouldn't be any white. It would also either make less shots, or smaller ones. They would be fine though.

      Delete
  10. I can't wait to make these this weekend. I also found the cups and lids at Party City.

  11. is/are there a/any non-alochol subsitution(s)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I was looking for non-alochol version of this "shot" since my household doesn't drink/touch alochol. (we have a preschooler who loves Seahawks!)

      Delete
    2. Use water instead of vodka. It will taste great!

      Delete
    3. Jello is usually made with one cup boiling water and one cup chilled water. Alcoholic shots replace the one cup of chilled water with a chilled liquor (rum, vodka etc). To make a non-alcoholic version you simply used chilled water in place of the chilled alcohol.

  12. Is it a 2 oz cup or a 4oz cup ???? thanks love, love, love it !!!! Michelle Toller Kaliespell, MT....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Glad you love them! Thank you! I used a 2.5 oz cup but the 2 oz would be fine. I am sure the 4 oz would be as well, but sometimes those can be a little difficult to get all the jello out of.

      Delete
  13. with the amount of water and alcohol, would you say that the vodka is not very noticeable? or is it strong? or just right in between? I don't have time to do a test batch before the game and i want to make sure they're good! I've never made jello shots before! thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd say it's noticeable. Not too, too strong, but you can taste the vodka.

      Delete
    2. I'm using a whipped cream flavored (Pinnacle) vodka and so far they smell delightful. Not sure how they'll taste but I can't imagine it'll hurt! :-)

  14. I was wondering the same thing as the above comment. My family knows how to party, and we plan on doing just that this weekend, especially since we've been hawks fans since the 80's (when nobody was a hawks fan!) and we live in the Seattle area (Issaquah). Are the shots pretty strong or should I add some vodka and take out a bit of water? And if I do that, will it change the consistency at all and effect the way the jello solidifies or will I be okay?

    ReplyDelete

    1. P.S. These look AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

    2. I love your dedication and that you are in Issaquah! We are an Issaquah-based company, so you should come introduce yourself sometime at the Issaquah Farmers Market this Spring. Sign up for the newsletter and I will post the dates we are there starting in April :)

      You can add more vodka without ruining anything. You could possibly use only vodka, but I've never tried that. It would be VERY vodka-ey at that point. Plus, I would think that if you heated the vodka for the boiling water portion, it would boil some of the alcohol right out. Maybe use part vodka/part water for the hot water portion? Or make them according to the directions, but double up on the number. GO HAWKS!

    3. I signed up for the newsletter and I'll certainly be coming by for the farmers market! I originally saw your post on a facebook page and didn't realize you were Issaquah based! I love that!!!!! Just finished making my jello shots and they're perfect. I only added 1/2 cup of vodka and I think that'll be good. They look perfect!!!! They're solid, delicious, paper bagged and ready to go. I can't wait to hand them out tomorrow! Thanks for the post!!!! LET'S DO THIS SEATTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    4. Thanks for signing up, Angela! Looking forward to meeting you this Spring. GO SEAHAWKS!!

  15. Hello! I am currently attempting to make these for our big party on Sunday :) I just put them back in the fridge for the white layer to set, but I noticed that once I added the pina colada mix it became very thick and sort of stringy. I still layered it on top of the blue and hope that it's okay. Is this normal? I've never used Knox gelatin before so my fingers are crossed that I didn't mess it up!

    Thanks for this recipe, I'm so excited to see how they'll turn out!

    GO HAWKS

    2. I just did a taste test...they're so good! The white layer seems to be a little more firm, but that's okay. I also may have over filled my cups a little which makes for some very large shots but they're still good. Thank you again :)

      Delete
    3. Oh good! The white layer is a little more firm, but I am glad they turned out :)

      Delete
    4. I have friends who say the white layer is not super flavorful and is a little chewy. I was planning on making the white layer a little thinner as a result. But this is good feedback! Their recipe was not from this site so maybe it was slightly different.

      Delete
    5. You know, I think the white layer is pretty good - but it isn't as strong and it is a little chewy. Let me know how it turns out for you, Kari!

  16. Hi! I made these using the 2 ounce cups, and they were a little bit hard to "pop" out. Do you use spoons or do you just try to squeeze the cups?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, I typically use my tongue, squeeze the cup and get it out that way, but if you don't want to do that then use your finger.

      Delete
    2. I like to let the jello set up slightly before putting it into the little cups. It does not stick as solid to the sides and is a lot easier to get out of the cup without a spoon.

  18. I'm making the shots in 4oz little cups, it made about 20 and the blue is in the fridge still setting as I type. Do you think these will turn out alright? :)

  19. Thanks for posting this recipe Shelly!! They are looking amazing! Can't wait to try them.

  20. i wanted to tell you that while i was at safeway picking up the ingredients, there was another couple buying the same stuff! I doubled the recipe since the only blue jello was a 6 ounce box (and heck, why not?) - i've ended up with leftover that i put into a regular jello dish and am layering. once it sets I'll cut them into cubes. Yummy! This has got to be the most popular recipe online right now!

    1. Thank you so much, Daryl! The cube idea is awesome.

      I am a huge Hawks fan and love to make recipes (including my fun soap recipes) so anything I can do to put a little good Seahawks Mojo out into the world...I'm In!

  21. We took the last 2 Berry Jello's from our local store here in Spokane. Everything else is well stocked, so I have a feeling lots of us are making these jello shots. Thanks for posting the recipe and would love to see some of your soaps. Do you have a full website? If so, would love to visit it and see what other great ideas you come up with. Thanks again for sharing the recipe .... GO HAWKS!!!!!

    1. Our Safeway ran out today too! In fact, I almost didn't get to make my own recipe. Funny.

  22. Just finished the last layer, followed your recipe with an extra splash of vodka to the green and blue layers. They look awesome and the colors did not run. Thanks for posting!!!!!

  25. I just got done doing the Jello Shots for tomorrow's game. I made one batch with coconut flavored vodka and the other batch with whipped vodka...They turned out perfect and I just wanted to thank you for sharing this great idea!

    1. Coconut flavored vodka sounds so good! I will have to try that next year. Can't change it up this year, because so far they've been working (superstitious). Ha. Thank you for the comment - I appreciate it :)

  26. Using 44 North Huckleberry Vodka...everyone apparently took all the blue berry Jello so I am using Blue Berry Koolaid and regular gelatin with some extra food coloring added for good measure. Hope this works!

    1. That sounds pretty good, actually. Very creative. Crossing my fingers that it works for you!

  27. I made a double batch of these last night - they look awesome!

    My tip is to use muffin tins instead of cookie sheets. Since you're taking these in & out of the fridge several times, it gives it more stability - not to mention they stack super easy in the fridge too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. My Safeway was also out of blue and green jello, I bought lemon and am using a bit of green and blue food coloring, so far so good! Thanks for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  29. These were such a huge hit--thank you so much for this recipe! We even had some people who made plain jello shots for Sunday (rookies!) and of course these were more delicious. I also used whipped flavored vodka each time so the vodka taste barely registered--they were perfectly sweet.

  30. Thank you so much for the compliment and feedback, Kari! I really appreciate it and am happy your jello shots and the Seahawks were such a success on Sunday!
