Here’s what you’ll need to make these jello shooter syringes-
Syringe Jello Shots Ingredients
- 2 (3 oz.) boxes of jello- you can choose your flavor of jello, either red jello (strawberry jello or cherry jello) or green (we used Sonic green apple jello).
- 3 cups of cold water, divided
- 1 cup vodka
- 32 (1 oz.) plastic syringes for jello shots
Note: Using the Sonic green gelatin changes the instructions a bit, as the water required is different than the Jell-O brand. The main instructions on this recipe are for using Jell-O brand, but you’ll find instructions for the Sonic flavors below as well.)
How to Make Jello Syringes
Step 1: In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
Step 2: Remove from the heat and whisk in red or green jello packets, stirring until powder is dissolved.
Step 3: Add 1 cup cold water and 1 cup of vodka. Whisk to combine.
Step 4: Fill the syringes with gelatin mixture, place the caps on, and place them onto a plate or pan.
Step 5: Move the syringes to the refrigerator to chill for about 4 hours, until jello is set.
These fun Halloween jello shots is such an easy recipe, the hardest part is just waiting for them to set!
How to Make the Green Ooze Syringes with Sonic Jello
To make the Sonic jello according to the package instructions, you need 3 cups water total according to the box directions, so we are going to alter this recipe and use 2 1/4 cups of water and 3/4 cup of vodka. The rest of the directions are the same.
Halloween Jello Shots Syringes FAQs
Where can I buy plastic syringes?
You can find them at party stores, like party city sometimes, and they are always available on Amazon!
How much alcohol is in these unique jello shots?
Since this recipe makes 32 syringes, and we put in 8 ounces of vodka, there is only 1/4 of an ounce of vodka in each shot. Two syringes would be the same as our usual 2 ounce jello shot cups.
Can I use a different liquor?
Absolutely! You can use any liquor you prefer. Rum jello shots would also be delicious!
