Green Apple Jello Shots Recipe

Green Apple Explosion

Sometimes Jello shots are just meh. The vodka is too strong and the flavor is too weak. You don't have to worry about that problem with these Jello shots. These delicious shots are packed full of green apple flavor and are guaranteed to become your new favorite Jello shot.

This Green Apple Jolly Rancher Jello Shot recipe was inspired by Slimer from Ghostbusters. So whether you are hosting a fun party or watching Ghostbusters, these easy green Jello shots are sure to be a huge hit! And their green color makes this a perfect and fun recipe for a Halloween party, St. Patrick's Day, and even Christmas!

Sour Apple Jello Shot Ingredients

✽ Boiling Water: The gelatin powder will dissolve in a cup of water to ensure there are no clumps in the final product.

Green Apple Gelatin Packet (Powder): I used a package of Green Apple Jolly Rancher Gelatin, and it's so good! It's quickly become my favorite flavor of Jello! Sonic also has a green apple gelatin that I have found at the grocery store as well.

✽ Vodka: Half of the liquor in this recipe comes from vodka. With the strong green apple flavors, you won't even know it's there.

✽ Sour Apple Schnapps: The other half of the liquor in this recipe comes from sour apple schnapps. This adds just a bit of sourness and more green apple flavor for the best Jell-O shots ever! Two of my favorite brands are Mr. Stacks Sour Apple Schnapps and DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps.

Green Apple Gummies: Completely optional to garnish the shots with green apple gummy rings, but they are a fun addition and the perfect way to make these shots look super cute!

How to Make Green Jello Shots

➊ Add 1 cup of boiling hot water to 3 ounces of green apple gelatin powder in a medium mixing bowl or large measuring cup. Stir for about 2 minutes until all the powder is dissolved.

Green Apple Gelatin

➋ Now mix in 1/2 cup vodka and 1/2 cup of sour apple schnapps. Stir well.

➌ Pour Jello mixture into 2 ounce disposable plastic shot glasses. You should get about 10 shots. I like to set all the shots on a small baking sheet or cookie sheet so that it is easier to transport them. Place the shots in the fridge for 3-4 hours or until set. If desired, garnish with green apple gummies. Cheers!

Appletini Jello Shots: Questions

✽ Can you use green or sour apple vodka instead of sour apple schnapps?

I chose to use schnapps instead of vodka because the schnapps makes these shots sweet, takes away that strong vodka flavor, and gives you the best tasting shots. If you don't mind a more 'vodka-tasting' Jello shot then green apple vodka will work too! Just a side note- replacing vodka with schnapps will make these shots a tad bit stronger.

Since green apple vodka is not common, I did not call for using it in this recipe. You could though swap the regular vodka out for green apple vodka.

✽ Can I turn these Green Apple Vodka Jello Shots into Caramel Apple Jello Shots?

Yes! Caramel and green apple make for such a great flavor combination! An easy way to get a bit of caramel flavor into these shots is to substitute the 1/2 cup of vodka for 1/2 cup of caramel vodka.

You could even go all out and dip the rims of the shots glasses into a little bit of caramel sauce. My caramel sauce recipe that I make for my caramel apples works really well for this.

✽ Can I put more alcohol in these jello shots?

I do not recommend adding more alcohol than this recipe calls for (1 cup of alcohol) because you run the risk of the jello shots not setting properly.
