These Gatorade Jell-O Shots Are The Most Important Football Snack Of All Time

A very ~on theme~ way to get turnt at your Super Bowl party.

Posted on

Pour 3 cups Gatorade into a medium pot over high heat and bring it to a boil.

The Gatorade will be chilled because you're using another 1 1/2 cups from the same bottle again later to help cool down the liquid before you add the alcohol. So, you're not chilling Gatorade just so that you can boil it; you're chilling it so that the remaining 1 1/2 cups will be cold enough to cool the liquid and keep it from killing the booze.


Repeat with as many colors as you want to make.

We made four, two for each team, using orange Gatorade, light blue Gatorade, dark blue Gatorade, and dark blue Gatorade with black food coloring.


Gatorade Jell-O Shots

Makes about 45 1-ounce shots

Recipe by Christine Byrne

We made 4 batches of shots using different Gatorade flavors so that each of the Super Bowl team's colors were represented. To make the black Jell-O shots, we added 15 drops of black food coloring to dark blue Gatorade as it heated.


4½ cups Gatorade, chilled

1 ounce unflavored gelatin (4 envelopes)

1½ cups vodka


Bring 3 cups Gatorade to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove the pan from the heat and add the gelatin, vigorously whisking the mixture until all the gelatin has dissolved. Add the remaining 1½ cups chilled Gatorade and whisk the mixture until it cools to room temperature. Add the vodka and whisk to combine.

Place shot glasses (we used these) on a large rimmed baking sheet or a large, shallow plastic container. Fill the shot glasses with the liquid and refrigerate until set, 3 to 4 hours. Serve chilled.
