Awesome Valentine's Day Jell-O Shots (RECIPE)

For a fun Valentine’s Day party drink, make delicious red and pink Jell-O shots! 

Maybe you’re getting together with girlfriends or the bros and want to add a little flair to the Valentine’s Day plans. And since this year the Super Bowl is the night before Valentine’s Day, you have another reason to buy some Jell-O and make a batch of fun Valentine’s Day party shots for family and friends. Since these shots aren’t that boozy (1 can of wine makes 12), they are perfect for almost any occasion. Just make sure to let the kids know that this Jell-O is for adults only.  

For a simple Jell-O dessert, make these recipes and pour into dessert cups instead of shot glasses. They may take longer to set, but they are just as delicious. Top with whipped cream or Cool Whip if you’re feeling fancy. 

These wine Jell-O shots prove that wine works well in just about anything and are delicious all year long! Make the raspberry rosé shots for pool time in the summer, and break out the red wine shots at a bonfire in the fall. Just remember to pair with a cooler of Graham + Fisk’s wine, so everyone has a full can of the good stuff to go with their Jell-O shots.
