NOTES

  • Store in the fridge for up to a week.
  • Use 1 oz cups (makes approximately 30 shots) or 2 oz shot cups (makes approximately 15 shots). 
  • Starburst and Jolly Rancher make green watermelon jello and pink watermelon jello but lime/cherry will also work.
  • Ciroc and Smirnoff make watermelon flavored vodka if you don’t want to use plain.
  • If you don’t like vodka, another light liquor can be substituted. 
  • Once these are set and have the lids on them they are easy to transport and can be tossed into a bag or cooler.
