These are just to name a few, and the most commonly used in PB&J shots by far are Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey and Frangelico. These are pricier bottles though, so if you’re on a budget, any nut flavored liqueur will do the trick.
What Alcohol Tastes Like Jelly?
You can get creative with the jelly component of a peanut butter and jelly shot because there are so many different flavors of jelly.
That said, the majority of the time you’ll find these liqueurs and spirits emulating the jelly component of a PB&J shot or cocktail.
Of the above, Chambord is the one you’ll see the most in recipes.
You’ll also see recipes that make a simple syrup or coulis instead of using a liqueur for the jelly part of the shot. Then for jello shots, often recipes use flavored jello to stand in for jelly instead of or along with a liqueur.
So in short, there are a lot of great options, and you can have endless fun coming up with different combinations. For specific peanut butter and jelly shot recipes though, read on!
If you enjoy a good PB&J, prepare to fall in love with these delicious peanut butter and jelly shots! From fun layered jello shots to easy 2-ingredient shooters, there's a PB&J shot for every occasion and palate.
This shot is super fun and only requires two ingredients: 1.5 ounces of strawberry liqueur and 1.5 ounces of peanut butter whiskey.
Instead of just mixing them together like a regular ol' shot, you pour the strawberry liqueur in a shot glass, put a rocks glass on top of it, and then flip it upside down. Then you add the peanut butter whiskey on top.
When you're ready, pull up the upside down shot glass and shoot it back!
To give it a creamy peanut butter texture, this shot uses a combination of Frangelico and Baileys Irish Cream. The only other ingredient you need is Chambord.
To make it, pour a 1/2 ounce of Chambord into a shot glass followed by a 1/2 ounce of Frangelico and finally a 1/2 ounce of Baileys. Make sure to pour each layer slowly over a cocktail spoon in order to get the layered effect.
But even if you don't nail the layering, it's all going to the same place and would taste exactly the same: delish!
Who wouldn't be totally thrilled by these bright purple PB&J jello shots!? They are SO fun and would no doubt get a party started off on the right foot.
They're also super easy to make. You simply whip up a box of grape jello, mix in 1.5 cups of peanut butter whiskey once the jello mixture is off the stove and cooled, then pour it all into shot cups and throw them in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours.
Garnish with crushed peanuts for a show-stopping, pretty in purple jello shot!
This is very similar to the above recipe, but a little more complicated to make and even more visually pleasing.
The peanut layer is made with plain gelatin, peanut butter, heavy cream, and vodka. You make the jello as you normal would, then whisk in the peanut butter and heavy cream, and finally the vodka once the mixture has cooled a bit.
For the jelly layer, you follow the same process but with grape jelly instead of peanut butter and heavy cream.
To make the shot, pour the peanut butter layer in a loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray, and then pop it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Once it's set, add the jelly layer and repeat the process until you have three layers. Cut into squares when you're ready to serve.
Sure, it's a labor of love, but it's also the most visually fun shot PB&J jello shot you'll come across!
This recipe is for anyone who is ALL about the grape jelly. It's also one of the more creative PB&J jello shots I've found and the one I'm most excited to try!
To start, you boil 2 cups of grape soda, add in grape jello to the boiling soda, and stir til it's dissolved. Then you add in another cup of grape soda, a 3/4 cup of peanut butter whiskey, and a 1/4 cup of Peanut Butter and Jelly Moonshine (like Sugarlands PB&J Moonshine).
It's basically an explosion of delicious grape booziness in one tiny shot glass and I have to have it!
This shot obviously isn't for every occasion, but it would be perfect for Halloween or a scary movie night! You could also leave off the eyeball altogether and then it's just a normal, non-spooky PB&J shot.
If you do want the eyeballs, you could find something similar at any dollar store. For the shot, all you have to do is fill a shot glass halfway with peanut butter whiskey and then finish it off with grape juice. Simple, but tasty!
I wanted to include this shot as an honorable mention, because it's not exactly a PB&J shot.
It's a combination of The Elvis (a peanut butter, bacon, banana sandwich) and a Fools' Gold (a peanut butter, grape jelly, and bacon sandwich Elvis also loved).
Now I know this might sound strange, but these sandwiches are insanely good and the flavors work together like magic, so I have nothing but confidence in this jello shot.
You make it like any other jello shot, and for ingredients you just need a box of grape jello, Creme De Banana liqueur, and peanut butter whiskey. Top the jello shots off with a slice of bacon and let out your inner Elvis!
Which of theses PB&J shots reminds you of your childhood?? You know… without the booze.
For me, it’s the jello shot made with grape soda — it’s calling my name and I have to have it!
