Storing Jello Shot Leftovers

Pineapple Jell-O Shots are best enjoyed fresh, but if you do find yourself with leftovers, here’s how you store them.

Keep leftover shots in the fridge, covered with cling film, for up to three days. The pineapple shell may start to lose its freshness beyond this point. If you’ve made the shots in individual cups, simply keep them covered in the fridge.

Tips and Tricks

  • When hollowing out your pineapple, use a pineapple corer if possible. It makes the job a lot easier, and you can save the fresh pineapple for another use.
  • Allow your Jell-O mixture to cool slightly before adding the vodka. This prevents the alcohol from evaporating and keeps your shots at their intended strength.
  • Patience is key! Make sure to let your Jell-O shots set completely before serving to achieve the perfect consistency.

Best Practices For Making Pineapple Jello Shot Cups

  • If you’re hosting a larger party, consider preparing your Pineapple Jell-O Shots a day ahead. They will need several hours to set, and their flavor only improves with a little extra time in the fridge.
  • Ensure your pineapple is ripe but firm. This will not only give you the best flavor but will also make it easier to hollow out and hold its shape when filled.
