What Are Good Jello Shot Recipes

Over the years I have acquired a drawer full of awesome jello shot recipes which I have typed up and listed below, bookmark this page and visit often. I will be adding more of my favorite recipes.
Each recipe is titled with what kind of jello and liquor is needed along with approximately how many shots you will yield for the recipe.
*TIP* – If you use a large glass measuring cup, and if you keep track accurately, all you will need to use is just that one measure cup.*
*TIP* – Check to see what the liquid level is on your measuring cup. If you have a steady hand, you can just use simple addition and check the displacement in the measuring cup as you add in each additional ingredient. This will help you avoid a sink full of dirty measuring cups when you are all done.*
