Total Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 16 1-ounce shots <– for me, it was more like 12 or 13

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz Jell-O or other gelatin (any flavor)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) vodka (or other distilled spirit)
  • 1/2 cup cold water

Preparation:

  1. Chill the liquor and cold water mix in the refrigerator so they are a consistent temperature.
  2. Pour gelatin into a bowl.
  3. Add boiling water, stirring until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
  4. Stir in chilled liquor and water mix and food coloring (optional).
  5. Pour into shot glasses, molds, or a baking pan for a sheet of Jell-O to cut up once set. Tip: The small, plastic or paper shot cups are perfect because the drinker can just squeeze the shot out.
  6. Refrigerate until the liquid sets. (At least 2 hours, but overnight refrigeration is recommended)
  7. Serve cold.
