These Grinch Christmas Jello Shots are guaranteed to liven up the party! An easy video tutorial and step-by-step recipe included!
Grinch Jello Shots
Jello shots are a flashback to my college days — I think they were pretty much a staple at every party. Not that I went to a lot of parties or anything… wink, wink…
These Grinch Jello shots are such a fun departure from the “usual” holiday drinks. Plus they are super pretty and will look great on your party table! (Be sure to keep out of reach of the kiddos!)
TIP: If you’re hosting a family party, you can totally make these nonalcoholic and serve as a party dessert instead. That way kids can enjoy them too!

Kitchen Supplies Used:
For your convenience in re-creating our Christmas Jello Shots, I’ve provided shop-able ad links to some of the products used; disclosure policy available here.
- We used these Edible heart confetti sprinkles on top of our whipped cream – they make the perfect “Grinch hearts!”
- Be sure to allow your Jello shot liquid to cool to room temperature before pouring into shot glasses. If the liquid is still boiling it could melt plastic shot glasses or crack glass.
- We love break-resistant shot glasses – they look like real glass, but are actually thick plastic so they’re much safer for parties.
