Homemade Rose Amaretto Jello Shots Recipe

This pink, bubbly concoction is perfect for holidays, spring, summer, ok any time of year really let’s be honest. Rosé amaretto jello shots are a delicious adult treat that is served up in sweet little coupe glasses(short-stemmed champagne glasses), making you feel like a fancy big kid. So, what makes up this precious, pink drink you may ask? Well, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and voila! Just kidding, we totally have the recipe listed down below with step by step instructions on how to prepare them.


This recipe will make four large shots or 6 to 8 small shots depending on the glasses used.

1 1/4 cups rosé sparkling wine

1/4 cup amaretto 

1/4 cup club soda

1/4 cup of simple syrup*

2 packets of unflavored gelatin

Garnish: Berries, cherries, or citrus

*Since amaretto is sweet, if you use a sweet rosé then you may want to lessen the amount of simple syrup. 


To start, add the simple syrup and club soda to a small pan. Add the gelatin packets last and let sit for about 2 minutes. After the mixture has sat, warm over medium heat and stir continuously. Once the gelatin has dissolved, pour the mixture into a medium to a large bowl.

To the bowl, add the rosé and amaretto and stir. Next, pour equal amounts of the mixture into glasses. At this time place any fruit you want in the bottom so it can set with the gelatin mixture. Lastly, chill in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours or until ready to serve. Serve with a spoon and a citrus slice hanging on the rim, or citrus peel shaved atop the drink. 

This recipe can be placed in heart molds for Valentine’s, square molds to resemble ice, or in little plastic shot cups for a large party. The garnish choices for this jello shot recipe are endless. Any berry, cherry, or citrus will do. Get creative and serve it as a refreshing adult dessert at a patio party or bridal shower.  

As mentioned above, the sweet almond flavor of the amaretto and the rosé in addition to the simple syrup could make it too sweet for some. Have fun and play with the flavor combinations until you find the flavor that puts a smile on your face.
