Creating Your Irish Flag Jello Shots

To create this Irish flag inspired Jello Shot you will need to layer it, which means allowing plenty of time for each layer to set properly. If you are planning to serve these at a party ensure you make them the day before so they are fully set and ready to be enjoy. Have some whipped cream on hand to top each jello shot right before serving. You can also grab some gold sprinkles or St. Patrick’s Day themed ones to sprinkle on top to add a little flare! Get creative and have some fun! Guests will enjoy having these patriotic Irish Flag Jello Shots.

Non-Alcoholic Irish Flag Jello Shots

If you want to create some Non-Alcoholic Irish Flag Jello Shots you definitely can! You will need to remove all the alcohol. Don’t worry we have a few ideas on what to replace it with.

Green layer you will need to replace the Watermelon Liquor that is listed, to do this we suggest adding watermelon juice if you want to stick with similar flavors. You can also just use water and make jello as usual. Both work well and it’ll still have the flavor from the watermelon jello.

White layer you need to replace your Whipped Vodka and Irish Cream. For these we suggest mixing in whipped cream with some water and using cream as replacements. This will stick with the flavors the original has.

Orange Layer you need to replace Jameson Liquor, for this later we suggest just using water since the flavor from the orange jello would be enough or you can add some orange juice to if if you wish to make the flavor even stronger. Feel free to experiment and pick which one you like best!
