Let’s mix-up the game day drinks with a game day Jell-o shot. Are you ready for some Jagerbombs? Yes? Well let’s stray from the traditional mug-gripping college affair and step it up with these Jagerbomb Jell-o shots for your game day drinks.
Yeah, this might be my all time favorite jello shot I’ve created. And even though Matt came up with the idea of a Jagerbomb jelly shot, I am taking full credit. See, every year we kick off football season with friends and I am traditionally expected to make a Jello-shot. This year, in the midst of complaining about my stalled brain, Matt blurted this out. I quickly snatched it up and got busy. Now it’s mine. Yes, I’m awful like that. Thank goodness I can turn out a good Jell-O shot so all is forgiven.
If not—have another, Babe. As for the rest of you, join me as I restart the annual Boozy Bites Series (expect more Jell-o Shots along with a few other small boozie bites until the Super Bowl). And remember, slurp and eat responsibly, these are called bombs for a reason.
A few notes:
- I made the shots using two forms (1) a mini cupcake pan and (2) these silicone cannelle molds here (side note: removing the shots from the cannelle molds was a bit tricky because of the deep wells). Alternately, the shots will work just as well poured into a loaf pan and cut into squares. To cut into squares, make sure to use a sharp knife and to lightly cover it with bake spray.
- I cut the Jagermeister with some cherry limeade because Jager straight is just too much for me. If cherry limeade is not available where you are, try straight limeade or any juice that suits your preference.
- Since the Jagermeister is 70 proof, you may find that a few will split from the beer bottom, and while you can add more gelatin to the Jager mixture to firm it up the texture will end up being more rubbery rather than soft and jelly like.
- These can be made two days in advance, anything beyond that and they start to shrink a bit.

Jagerbomb Jelly Shots
- 1/2 cup Jagermeister
- 1 cup cherry limeade
- 1 envelope of plain gelatin + 2 envelopes of plain gelatin (divided use)
- 2 cups beer
- Stir and combine Jagermeister and cherry limeade. Pour half of mixture into a small saucepan and sprinkle 1 envelope of gelatin on top. Set aside for 1- 2 minutes for gelatin to bloom. Place pan over low heat stirring constantly until gelatin has dissolved (mixture will resemble syrup consistency), about 3-5 minutes. Stir in remaining 3/4 cup of mixture until combined. Pour into mold and chill for at least 30 minutes or until slightly set. In the meantime, open beer and pour into a shallow bowl to flatten some of the carbonation while the Jagermeister portion chills.
- Pour half of 1 cup of beer into a small saucepan and sprinkle 2 envelopes of gelatin on top. Set aside for 1- 2 minutes for gelatin to bloom. Place pan over low heat stirring constantly until gelatin has dissolved (mixture will resemble syrup consistency), about 3-5 minutes. Stir in remaining cup of beer until combined. Pour beer mixture over Jagermeister layer and chill for at least 3 hours or until set.
- To remove jelly shots, firmly press finger in the center until jelly shot pulls away from the side walls of mold. Then use an offset icing spatula, gently guide jelly shot out of mold.

Oh boy, the memories (or lack of) of these I have downed in my teenager party days are coming back to me. Maybe it is time to revisit them with a Friday shot of boozy jello? I look forward to more jello this week!
Averie @ Averie Cooks says
Whoa, I need a Jello shot. I am not a big Jager fan (oh, the memories of it…LOL) but the creativity you have is just amazing! Off to re-read your other Jelloshot recipes. Pinned!

This was totally worth the Instagram induced wait.
Love the smashed shots, both the photos and the bombs! A perfect use for cannele molds too!
Amazing. And if we’re being honest here, my husband has come up with a few of my recipes, too. I rarely give him credit, though-hah!
Sommer @ ASpicyPerspective says
This is beyond brilliant! Thinking I need to go make these right now! 🙂
I spent my college years in a Jager-indused hazy.. So these are right up my alley… Love this photos.
jamie @lifelovelemons says
Jello just got real… Loving these!
Laura (Tutti Dolci) says
Love these photos, you captured the mood perfectly!
Kevin (Closet Cooking) says
Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet says
These shots are stunning!
Julie @ Table for Two says
haha this reminds me of some bad times in college 😉 but the way you creatively made them – just beautiful!
Your photography leaves me gasping and asking for more!
And jagerbomb jello shots? yes please.
Never thought about using beer in a jello shot. That’s pretty awesome.
Aimee Wimbush-Bourque says
OK, I’ve never had Jagermeister, but something tells me I need to start with these shots for my introduction.
Heather Christo says
only you could make jello shots gorgeous…
FRIKIN AWESOME!!! So creative girl ~ must try 🙂
Karen @ HonestlyYUM says
Omg! So insanely creative!!! And of course gorgeous.
I am so inspired by these! I would love to do it with red bull instead of beer for the second layer.
This post is incredible!!! I usually don’t care for Jager, but the cherry limeade sounds enticing. What a creative recipe and those photos are absolutely gorgeous. You continue to amaze me 😉
Would using all jäger no limeade be ok?
The Jagerbombs I’m used to are Jager in Red Bull, I might have to give that a go using your beer method. Love the photos, at first I thought you’d re-created gummy cola bottles! Once again pure genius.
Alley @ Alley's Recipe Book says
I love Jager Bombs! We make them with Red Bull though… might have to try that and cut out the limeade and beer.
Jessica – Yes, that should work. I would try 1 cup of Jager and use 1 envelope of gelatin. If you try this, please come back and let the rest of us know.
I’m so glad you like it!!! 🙂
Jacqueline – Red Bull will work just fine. Don’t forget to flatten it a bit or the gelatin will clump.
I mean, wow. Just WOW. I’m not really even a turbo Jager fan, but I NEED one (or two) of these tonight at cocktail hour. Mind = blown. Cheers!!
I tried making fancy jello shots once and it was a major fail. No one should have to eat alcohol with a fork…
I want to inform you that I have used an image of this post for making a summary link on my blog about international blogs with interesting content. You are perfectly linked. Thanks a lot
Brandon @ Kitchen Konfidence says
Nice. This takes me back to my college days 😉
Found these on amazon would be great for these shots…Im going to give it a try my New Years Party!! Thanks for the recipe!
In the ingredients you mention to use 2 cups of beer, but in the actual recipe you are only using 1 cup, or am I getting something wrong?
