One of those trademark inventions of America that seem to have been around forever, jell-o shot, jelly shot or jello shot (also known as vodka jelly or simply jelly shot in the UK and Australia) is a shooter made as standard gelatin dessert – however, the water used for gelatin is replaced by liquor such as rum, vodka or tequila.

The first jello shot was made in 1862 by American bartender Jerry Thomas and the shooter remains popular to this very day. Thomas’ original jello shot consisted of rum, cognac, lemon juice, and, of course, gelatin. The alcohol-low jello shot has been reinvented and expanded ever since, with new ingredients, colors and flavors.

Jello shots are particularly popular with the younger people and are usually served at the parties – they are juicy, refreshing and fun. The creativity of the bartender is simply limitless when it comes to jello shots – all kinds of fruits, sweets, colors and tastes can be used to produce tastier and nicer shooter.
