Vodka is the usual choice for making jello shots. There are a few reasons why vodka is the go-to option. Vodka is clear so the color of the jello will show better. The flavor of vodka is also relatively weak so the jello flavor can stand out more. And who doesn’t want a jello shot of vodka? But you don’t have to use vodka to make jello shots, you could make jello shots with rum recipes. That will really throw your party guests for a loop and they will love them just as much as they would if they had vodka.
Jello shots don’t have to be made with vodka and the best jello shots with rum recipes prove that with every shot you take.
But the beverage you choose is a little more fluid than the rest of the ingredients. You have to have jello to make jello shots but what beverage do you use? Most people will say vodka cause, duh.
But vodka isn’t the only option out there. You could get adventurous with your jello shots and use jello shots with rum recipes. These recipes are very similar to normal, every party jello shot recipes.
The biggest difference is the content of that beverage. Rum has a different flavor than vodka and that could interfere with the flavor of the jello you choose.
Instead of getting a little more than tipsy with the trial and error method, just use these recipes. They have been tried and proven to be good, now you just need to use them for your next party.

Not all rum is dark rum. In fact, the majority of these recipes use white rum. You may be familiar with white rum and it is among the most popular. The only rum that is slightly more loved is spiced rum.
Still, white rum allows you to get that vibrant color from the jello in each shot. However, you don’t have to stick with white rum, it is more like a guideline.
