Gourmet Apple Cider Jell-O Shots are not your average Jell-O shot, and they will be the star of your holiday party. Combine Martinelli’s Apple Juice or Cider, cinnamon, sugar and gelatin — with an extra cinnamon sugar rim! — to make this festive treat that’s fun for the whole family.


  1. Gently grease shot glass cups with cooking spray to help the Jell-O shots release better. Wipe away excess with a paper towel so that only trace residue remains.
  2. In a saucepan, stir together Martinelli’s apple cider and sugar. Sprinkle gelatin over top, evenly covering the surface. Let sit 2-3 minutes until surface is wrinkled.
  3. Heat on medium heat and stir until sugar and gelatin have dissolved. Mixture should be smooth with no graininess.
  4. Pour into the prepared shot glasses. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
  5. Meanwhile, make the cinnamon sugar. In a medium bowl, combine sugar and ground cinnamon. Stir until evenly distributed.
  6. Pour some onto a plate for rimming the glasses. Rub a lemon wedge around the edge of the shot glasses. Roll the edge in the cinnamon sugar.
  7. Serve!
