Do you love pumpkin spice lattes? Do you love shots? Then you’ll LOVE pumpkin spice latte shots! These little babies are super easy to make, and they taste absolutely amazing.
When the weather starts to cool down, one of my favorite things to drink is a pumpkin spice latte. And that’s why I love these pumpkin spice jello shots. They are the perfect combination of Fall and boozy.
What are Pumpkin Spice Latte Shots?
Simply put, these pumpkin spice latte shots are jello shots that taste like your favorite latte!
These pumpkin spice latte jello shots are the perfect way to enjoy all the flavors of fall in one delicious (and boozy) treat. Simply combine coffee, milk, and pumpkin spice with some gelatin and vodka, and you’ll have a batch of jello shots that are sure to be a hit at your next Halloween party.
Pumpkin Shot Ingredients
- Caramel Coffee– Prepare your caramel coffee before starting the jello shots. If you don’t like caramel, you can do vanilla instead.
- Gelatin– You want to use unflavored gelatin. This is because you want the caramel coffee and pumpkin spices to come through.
- Sweetened Condensed Milk-If you don’t have any, use whole milk and reduce it down to a cup. Then, mix it with 1 cup of sugar, preferably one that melts easily.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice– If you don’t have any pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own. Follow my simple Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice recipe.
- Vodka-The best vodka for jello shots is a middle shelf option like Smirnoff or Absolut. But, you can get whatever vodka you prefer.
- Whipped Cream– This is totally optional, but I like to top my jello shots with a healthy dose of whipped cream.

How Long Do Jello Shots Last?
These jello shots are best if you consume them within 3-5 days. So, you can definitely make these shots a few days in advance if you need to save time. But, only make them a day or two in advance for best results.
What Kind of Coffee Should I Use?
I recommend using a strong brewed coffee for these shots. However, if you don’t have any on hand, you can also use instant coffee.
Can I Use a Different Alcohol?
Yes, you can definitely experiment with different types of alcohol. Just keep in mind that the pumpkin spice flavor will be more pronounced with darker liquors like bourbon or rum.
