It’s no secret that we love jello shots—we even have a full archive of them!
I decided to make cranberry jello shots for Thanksgiving and they turned out so cute and festive.
Ingredients For Cranberry Jello Shots:
- Cranberry juice cocktail
- Cranberry jello mix (one 3 ounce box)
- Orange vodka
To garnish, cut small pieces of rosemary and roll fresh cranberries in honey and sugar.
Add them to the top of each shot after they’ve set. Be sure to tell your guests that they don’t have to eat the garnishes (although, some of my guests did anyway, ha!)
You can serve cranberry jello shots in regular shot glasses or you can use cute little glitter cups like these, and I recommend a pretty wooden serving board, too.

Do you think you could sub champagne for the vodka? Have you ever tried that?
These are so good!
I found cranberry jello at a Walmart, they even had the great value brand. So, I just made these and they are currently in the fridge, waiting for them to turn into jello. The recipe calls for 2 1/4 cups of cranberry juice right? Not 2 – 1/4 cups of cranberry juice? Alot of people here said they were going to try this recipe, but couldn’t find anyone that actually made them. Seemed like a lot of liquid for 1 pack of jello and wanted to make sure I didn’t misunderstand and just messed them up. Thank you!
Happy Thanksgiving!!! I love your blog but i just wanted to let you know I tried 4 grocery stores and none sold cranberry jello mix for the cranberry Jell-O shot recipe you have listed! 🙁 I substituted it for orange jello but maybe it should be listed this is a seasonal item and difficult to come by 🙁 either way your blog is amazing and I hope you have a happy holiday!!
Hey Thanks Elsie for this lovely Jello shots, I tried it after Cod with Salsa! Great Taste! Great experience!
Oh, and I found the CUTEST little tiny silver (plastic) spoons at Dollar Tree when I bought the shot glasses there. They are soooo perfect!
My cousin brought them to Thanksgiving and then I just took them to a work party over the weekend. I had to send the link to five people this morning. Totally fun, yummy, and elegant.
Not sure where you were looking, but I got mine at Fred Meyer?
We made these Jello shots for Thanksgiving at our house this year and they were such a huge hit! We loved them! SO easy to make, and YUM YUM YUM – MAYBE too good! LOL
I wrote a post that included a link because I wanted to help spread the word!
I bought some off Amazon since I am determined to make these for my Christmas party!
I can’t find it either. 🙁 Checked multiple groceries. Going to try it with raspberry jello instead and see how that goes…
Any idea what grocery stores have cranberry JELLO? haven’t had any luck finding that flavor so far. 🙁
love this idea! but where did you find the cranberry jello? i live in ny and can’t find it anywhere!
Where did you find those shot cups? I can only ever find the plain old squat ones, and those are so fancy!
I’m also having a “Friendsgiving” party so these would be an awesome addition! I’m going to try and use the vegan jello I’ve had laying around for ages and see how that goes!
I love Jello shots! I had them, when I was in the states but I haven’t had them since. I will definently be making my own jello shots soon.
Alcoholic cranberry sauce. I love it!
These look delicious and perfect for a holiday party! Can’t wait to try this!
So cute, love the sugared cranberries on top. Great touch.
Umm, yum! Love those cranberries on the top too! I wish we had thanksgiving in the UK, I guess I will have to wait till Christmas to try out this recipe!
