Guinness Jello Shots

Throwing a St. Paddy’s Day bash?! This is the perfect treat that all your guests will love!

Guinness Jello Shots

Beer Layer Ingredients

  • 10 tbsp Guinness
  • 2 tsp unflavoured gelatin
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder (optional, to add a hint of chocolate)

Foam Layer Ingredients

  • 4 tsp unflavoured gelatin
  • 6 tbsp Bailey’s


  1. Combine the cold Guinness with 2 tsp of gelatin. Add the cocoa powder.
  2. Boil 1/4 cup of water and add it to the beer and gelatin mixture. Stir until gelatin is dissolved and pour into shot glasses. Place in the fridge until hard.
  3. Sprinkle 2 tsp of gelatin over a bowl of 2 tbsp of cold water.
  4. Boil the water.
  5. Measure out 2 tbsp of boiling water and 3 tbsp Bailey’s and combine it with the gelatin and water mixture. Stir until combined. Pour onto a plate and place in the fridge until firm.
  6. Once hard, chop the jelly into tiny chunks. Pile these jello chunks on top of the firm Guinness jello.
  7. Make a second batch of the Bailey’s jello using the same process. Once the gelatin is dissolved, drip the mixture over the chopped bits in the shot glasses. This will fill in the empty spaces, creating the “foam”.
  8. Place back into the fridge until firm, about 1 hour.
