Peach Jello Shots Ingredients
- Jello mix - peach jello mix
- Schnapps - peach schnapps
- Candy rings - Peach candy rings
You can adjust the strength of your jello shots by changing the ratio of peach schnapps and water. For a stronger jello shot, use up to 1 full cup of peach schnapps. Or for a lighter jello shot, you can use additional cold water and reduce the amount of alcohol. You just need two cups total of liquid to combine with the jello mixture. If you don’t want to use peach schnapps you can substitute vodka for all or some of the liquor as you will still get plenty of peach flavor from the hello itself.
Keep jello shots refrigerated until consuming. They can start to liquefy in the summer heat. Also, the gummy peach rings get soft and slimy if they sit on top of the shots for too long. We recommend popping them on just before serving this boozy treat.
If you can’t find the 2-ounce plastic shot cups with lids, they may be labeled as plastic condiment cups. You can also use any shot cups you prefer, but keep in mind that your servings may differ from this recipe.
