How to Make Apple Cider Fireball Shots

Gather your ingredients, it helps to have everything pre-measured and ready to go!

Bring the water to a boil, add the gelatin and whisk gently until dissolved.


Remove from heat, add the fireball.


Transfer the mixture to shot cups. I used the Tovelo pen to create quick, even shots.


Hard Cider Apple Shots

  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 cups of Hard Apple Cider
  • 1/2 cup of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
  • 1/2 cup of Sour Apple Schnapps
  • 2 envelopes of Knox Gelatin

Combine water and apple cider into a saucepan and heat over medium heat.

Add Knox Gelatin, stir till dissolved.

Remove from heat, add Fireball and Apple Schnapps, stir

Let the mixture cool 5-10 minutes before transferring into plastic jello shot cups.


Sour Apple Fireball Shots

You’ll Need:
1 pkg Sour Apple Jello
1 1/2 c. fireball
1/2 c. water

Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan, add the sour apple gelatin, whisking until it’s completely dissolved. Remove from heat, cool 5 minutes, add the fireball and whisk gently to combine. Cool 10 minutes and then fill the plastic shot cups.


I’ve found that Tovolo Pancake Pen works absolutely fantastic for filling the shot cups without any mess. Just fill the pen, cap it off and squeeze gently to evenly fill each cup. It works wonders for pudding shots too!

  1. Define “hard” apple cider plz!
    Like, Angry Orchard?(alcohol, sugar, carbonation)(isn’t really hard cider no matter what the package says)
    Or, apple cider from a jug that has been sitting until the fermentation process has started again and has a bit of a tang to it?(actually made from apples)

  2. I just took these off the heat and while waiting to cool, scrolled down to read the comments. I used 1 1/2 cans of Bold Rock Hard Cider which has some carbonation to it. Hoping these still turn out ok! Where do you get hard cider that’s not bottled like Angry Orchard, Crispin or our local Bold Rock?
