A Video Guide to Making Three-Layer Gelatin Shots with Jevo
We love making layered shots with Jevo. It’s a great way to celebrate a special event or cheer on a sports team using creative color combinations. It’s also a great way to increase the variety on your menu by introducing fun flavor combinations, which can also be done by using flavored spirits.
Recently we shared our recipe for making red, white, and blue Jevo shots and we’ve gotten feedback from some customers that it seems like a lot of work. While the word-heavy instructions can make the process seem confusing, you’ll see it’s pretty simple once you get started. You’ll need three brief sessions of hands-on time over the course of a few hours; It takes us about 8 minutes at a time.
Basically, you just need to remember two key things:
- Don’t put anything in the fridge until after the liquid has been split.
- Allow each layer to set before starting any work on the next layer.
We created an instructional video to help make this process crystal clear. You can watch the video in its entirety below, and scroll down for some handy step-by-step instructions with clips from the video.
Step 1: Use Jevo to make your first (bottom) color, and don’t refrigerate them yet
Step 2: Divide each shot evenly among three cups so each cup is a third full
You’ll grab two fresh cups and keep some in the original.
While we recommend using four trays for a three-layer shot, you can also use three trays and place shots back into the source tray as it empties.
Chill the first layer until it’s set. Don’t start working on the second layer yet.
Step 3: Use Jevo to make your second (middle) color, and don’t refrigerate your shots yet.
Step 4: Fill each cup from steps 1 & 2 with a third of the liquid from the new cup, so each cup is now two-thirds full.
Chill until the middle layer is set. Don’t start working on the third layer yet.
Step 5: Just like the last step, empty a third of each cup from the new batch into our layered cups.
Aim for getting that top layer up to about between the eyes and the rim of the cup.
Chill until the top layer is set. At that point, you’re ready to serve your three-layer shots!
That’s it! Not so tricky after all. Now you can get some practice making your own three-layer shots. To show them off, tag your social media posts with @getjevo or #jevoshots; we love sharing our customers’ handiwork.
