What Are Crown Peach Jello Shots?

Crown peach Jello shots are a popular party treat that combines the smooth, fruity flavor of Crown Royal peach whisky with the classic gelatin-based Jello shot. They’re served in small, single-serving cups and topped with a peach candy, so they’re both fun and flavorful!

The use of Crown Royal Peach, a smooth Canadian whisky known for its rich, peach-infused taste, adds a unique twist to the traditional jello shot, taking it from a simple gelatin dessert to a fun adult-friendly treat.

Making Crown peach Jello shots is actually pretty simple. It involves dissolving peach-flavored jello powder in boiling water, then mixing in peach whiskey (or another peach flavored liquor) instead of the cold water typically called for in Jello recipes.

Crown Peach Jello Shots Ingredients

ingredients to make crown peach jello shots
  • 3-ounce box peach gelatin
  • 1 cup peach juice (such as Simply Peach) or water
  • 1 cup Crown Royal peach whisky
  • 12 peach gummy candies (such as peach rings or Haribo peaches)

Ingredient Tips and Substitutions

  • This recipe basically substitutes peach juice for the hot water and peach whiskey for the cold water on the standard Jello preparation recipe
  • You can swap in peach schnapps or peach-flavored vodka (like New Amsterdam) instead of the Crown Royal peach if preferred
  • Feel free to also split half and half with another flavor of liquor, like Malibu rum for a peach-coconut tropical mix, or strawberry vodka for a peach-strawberry combination!
  • Other garnish options besides peach gummies would be fresh peach slices or whipped cream

Equipment Note

  • You’ll need something to boil your juice (or water). A stovetop or electric kettle works, or you can also use your microwave
  • To make Jello shots, you also need plastic shot glasses with lids (or mini condiment cups). I wanted to make these shots earlier in the week and forgot to get cups, so don’t be like me! These 2-ounce plastic cups work great (and the lids make them easy to stack)!

How to Make Crown Peach Jello Shots

  1. Boil 1 cup of juice (or water if preferred). You can do this in an electric kettle, stovetop kettle, or in the microwave. I microwave my juice in a large measuring cup on high for about 3 minutes in my 1000W microwave (it needs to get to 212°F)

  1. Combine the Jello mix with the boiling juice or water in a bowl, and stir until it’s fully dissolved. If you boiled your juice using a bowl or similar in the microwave, you can just add the Jello to the bowl!

  1. Pour or ladle your peach mix into individual Jello shot cups. I like to set them on a baking sheet to catch drips, and it also makes them easier to transfer in and out of the fridge

Recipe FAQs

Can I Use Different Flavored Jello?

Yes, you can experiment with different flavors. While peach Jello complements the Crown Royal peach, other flavors like strawberry or raspberry can also work well.

Pineapple, cherry, or lemon Jello are other great flavor combinations that work well with peach, though they are less traditional options.

How Long Do Crown Peach Jello Shots Take To Set?

Crown Peach Jello shots typically take 2-4 hours to set in the refrigerator.

For best results, leave them overnight.

Can I Make Non-Alcoholic Peach Jello Shots?

Yes, you can make non-alcoholic mocktail versions by replacing the peach whiskey with an equal amount of cold water or peach juice.

You could also use a different complimentary flavor of juice, such as strawberry, blueberry, cherry, pineapple, or orange juice.

What Is The Best Way To Serve Crown Peach Jello Shots?

Serve the Jello shots cold directly from the refrigerator.

You can garnish them with a dollop of whipped cream, fresh peach slices, or mint leaves for extra flair.

How Long Can I Store Crown Peach Jello Shots?

Crown peach Jello shots can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Keep them covered to prevent them from drying out or absorbing other fridge odors.

Can I Make Peach Jello Shots In Advance?

Yes, you can make them a day or two in advance.

Just be sure to store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve them.

What Type Of Cups Should I Use For Jello Shots?

Use small plastic or silicone shot cups, typically 2-ounce size.

They make it easy to serve and consume the Jello shots.

How Can I Make Jello Shots Set Faster?

To speed up the setting process, you can place the Jello shots in the freezer for 20-30 minutes before transferring them to the refrigerator.

Be careful not to leave them in the freezer too long, or they may freeze solid.

Recipe Pro Tips For Crown Peach Jello Shots

  • I like to boil my juice and mix everything in a large Pyrex measuring cup because it also provides a spout to easily pour the mixture into the individual cups. However, you can also use a funnel, ladle, or similar to aid in this process
  • These are pretty strong as written (like a typical shot would be). However, if you want to reduce the strength or hide the alcohol a bit more, use ½ cup Crown and ½ cup cold water with it instead
  • Try to fill your cups relatively evenly and not all the way to the top, or else they’ll end up with funny lid imprints once they set. They still taste fine (and you could probably cover imperfections with the candy if needed)!

Storing and Serving Jello Shots With Crown Royal

  • Store peach Crown Jello shots in the refrigerator for up to one week. It’s best to keep them covered to avoid drying out and taking on fridge flavors. I usually use cups with lids for this reason (plus you can stack them for easier storage)!
  • You can make Jello shots up to 2 days in advance and store in the refrigerator until needed for your get together, making it easy to prepare ahead!
  • Serve Jello shots cold, directly from the cup. Feel free to remove the lids and add garnishes such as peach candies, peach rings, fresh peach slices, or whipped cream before serving to guests
