Everyone loves jello shots, but these are next level! They say 4th of July and Happy summer all in one cute little package. Perfect for any summer gathering but especially so for 4th of July. The classic "Bomb Pop" Jello shot.

We pulled this recipe from one of our favorite bloggers: Bread Booze Bacon and even added a twist of our own!

This boozy treat is an adult twist on a classic summer treat that we all love. I mean they are great by themselves, but add a little rum and you've got yourself a winner. The nostalgic look of the Bomb Pop jello shot will take you back in time, but packed with a punch they will for sure get the party started!


  • 3 envelopes unflavored gelatin (about 3 tablespoons)

  • ¾ cup cold water

  • 1½ cups hot water

  • ¾ cups sugar

  • ¾ cups silver rum (We used Bacardi)

  • Red: 3 tablespoons grenadine

  • White: 2 tablespoons cream of coconut (like Coco Real)

  • Blue: 2 tablespoons blue curaçao


  1. Pour the gelatin powder into a medium mixing bowl Add the cold water and stir to combine Allow to sit for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the gelatin has absorbed the water.

  2. Whisk in the hot water until the gelatin is dissolved Whisk in the sugar until it is dissolved Add the rum and stir to combine.

  3. Divide the jello base evenly into 3 separate bowls (a little over 1 cup of liquid per bowl).

  4. To the first bowl, add the grenadine and stir to combine.

  5. To the second bowl, add the cream of coconut and stir to combine.

  6. To the third bowl, add the blue curaçao and stir to combine.

  7. Pour 1½ tablespoons of the red jello mixture into the bottom of 18, 2-ounce silicone molds. Refrigerate the jello for 30 minutes, or until the jello has started to set and the surface is firm.

  8. Remove the jello from the fridge, and pour 1½ tablespoons of the white jello into each mold. Return the jello shots to the fridge and let set for 20 minutes.

  9. Remove the shots from the fridge, and pour in 1½ tablespoons of the blue jello into each mold.

  10. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to make sure the jello is completely set. Cover the mold with plastic wrap (or the cover it came with) and keep the jello shots refrigerated until ready to serve!

We added a jazzy rim thanks to Fancy Sprinkles (we love their products) Miss Americana which went perfectly with our 4th of July theme!

This recipe is relatively simple, you just need to have the patience to wait for the layers to set. But once you do, you will be glad you did. They will wow your crowd and I'm sure become a favorite for those summer events!
