  • 3 ounces jello gelatin mix varying flavors
  • 1 cup water boiling
  • ½ cup cold water
  • ½ cup vodka plain or flavored
  • 2 ounce plastic containers with lids or shot glasses
  • whipped cream optional
  • fruit toppings optional


  • In a small pan, boil one cup of water.
  • Once boiling, add in jello gelatin mix and whisk until completely dissolved. Remove pan from the stove and pour the mixture into a separate pourable container. This can be either a glass measuring cup or a small pitcher.
  • Begin by whisking in cold water, and then add in vodka.
  • Once combined, pour finished mixture into 2-ounce containers or any plastic shot glass until almost full.
  • Allow to set in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour, preferably 2 to 3 hours.


TIP: I usually serve our simple Jello shots in mini 2-ounce cups with lids. For Halloween, you could also make Jello shot syringes for a great themed option. 
TIP: Allow the dissolved gelatin mixture to cool slightly before adding in vodka. This will prevent alcohol from boiling out, resulting in weaker shots. By pouring the mixture into a separate container, this will allow the mixture enough time to cool to a sufficient temperature and make it easier to pour into your containers!
TIP: If you’re feeling fancy, feel free to combine two flavors together! Fill a 2-ounce container up halfway, allow the first layer to set in the freezer for about 20 minutes, just to help it firm up a little faster, and then pour on the second flavor. Allow mixture to set in the fridge for a couple of hours until completely set.
