The Best of the Halloween Syringe Jello Shot Recipes

This recipe we call “Swamp Sludge” and it seems fitting to serve alongside any of the Mummy Treats we talked about. I have no idea why, but the movie Swamp Thing is stuck in my head here and they just seem to go together.

See what I mean? Mummy + Swamp = awesomeness!

Now, why is Jello so fantastic?

– Jello shots take almost no time to make

– There is little clean up involved – always a plus when you have crowds over or want to drink in the comfort of your own home without worrying about having to clean up the next day

Halloween syringe jello shot recipes variations

Yes, the best part of all those choices is all the unique Jello shots you can create – both with and without alcohol. I know I have shared a few fun Jello shot creations in the past – like our Unicorn Shots and our Mermaid Jello Shots but there are so many ways you can switch up these Halloween syringe jello shot recipes just by changing out the Jello flavor or the food coloring to create a Jello mixture that will wow someone.

  • How about a red Jello with a hint of blue food coloring to make bloody syringes?
  • Green gelatin can make a “Biohazard Toxic Ooze”
  • Try using chilled malibu rum, cream vodka, pineapple juice, or even lemon-lime soda instead of cold water to be the perfect way to customize your 1.5 ounce Jello shots.

You get the idea – there are a ton of ways to switch it up.

How do you make alcoholic Jello shots?

How do you make alcoholic Jello shots?

OK, so I mentioned a few different kinds of alcohol you could use on your shots – but it isn’t an even swap out with the cold water! You can follow the normal Jello recipe but replace only HALF of the cold water with the chilled booze. Since these Halloween syringe jello shot recipes we are sharing today uses 1.5 cups of cold water, you would use 3/4 cup cold water and 3/4 cup of your favorite flavor of alcohol.

I am thinking Vodka would be great with our Swamp Sludge – but that is just me… and you would be using less than one cup vodka for the entire batch – where plenty of Halloween cocktails easily use that much in every drink.
