Ingredient Notes

  • Sonic Ocean Water Jello – If your local store doesn’t have this brand, look for any brand of coconut-flavored gelatin or buy it on Amazon.
  • Blue Raspberry Vodka – Svedka offers an excellent version of the blue raspberry vodka that is worth using in this recipe.
  • Gummy Sharks – Gummy sharks are readily available at different stores, such as Dollar Tree and Dollar General, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding them to add on top of your gelatin shots. You can also order them here.

  • Chill. Transfer the mixture to condiment cups then chill in the fridge. Once the jello sets, add a gummy shark on top.

Tips for Making the Shark Water Jello Shots

  • When preparing your shots, be sure to mix the gelatin well with the boiling hot water to avoid clumps of sugar.
  • Keep the shots refrigerated long enough to give the gelatin enough time to hold its shape. If you take them out too soon, they won’t hold the shape, and they won’t be ready to eat and enjoy.
  • Wait for your jello shots to fully set before placing the shark on top as the finishing touch. You may then want to top the condiment cups off with a plastic lid, depending on if you’re traveling with the shots or not.
  • You can use either 1 ounce or 2 ounce condiment cups.

Jello Shot Essentials

  • Condiment cups – Unless you have a large stash of shot glasses, you’ll want to make your jello shots in condiment cups. Most jello shots are made in 2 ounce condiment cups but if you want the shots to go further, you can use 1 ounce condiment cups instead.
  • Sauce pan – You’ll want to use a decent, non-stick saucepan for preparing your jello shots. We like this one.
  • Baster – A baster is my secret to easily filling the jello shot cups, without making a mess!
  • Measuring cups – To ensure you’re adding the right amount of water and liquor, you’ll want a decent measuring cup as well.

Can I Make This in Advance?

It’s fine to make the Shark Water Jello Shots in advance. If you’re planning to make them for a party, you can make them the night before to give the gelatin plenty of time to set. Be sure to keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them.

FAQs

  • What if I can’t find the Sonic gelatin? If you can’t find the Sonic Ocean Water gelatin, look for any other brand that offers a coconut-flavored gelatin. You may also swap it out for a blue raspberry gelatin if you don’t like the taste of coconut.
  • How long will the shots need to sit in the fridge? The jello shots will need to spend at least two hours in the fridge, if not longer than that to form. It’s the reason why it’s best to make them in advance if you have time to do so.
