Vodka jelly, or Jell-O shots as they are known in the United States, can be made for parties, card games, neighborhood BBQs, you name it. Because it is colorful and fruity, vodka jelly is enjoyed by almost every consenting adult age 21 or older. Additionally, Jell-O can be molded into a variety of shapes for interesting visual presentations or allowed to set in, for example, martini glasses (with a spoon for serving), for an original presentation. Almost any Jell-O flavor can be used, but sometimes the cherry flavor mixed with the alcohol tastes too much like cough syrup. Lime and orange are safe bets.
Things You'll Need
- One package of Jell-O (4 servings; 3 oz.)
- 1 cup boiling water
- ½ cup cold water
- ½ cup vodka
- Medium-sized bowl
- Shot glasses, small plastic containers or martini glasses
Dissolve the Jell-O in the boiling water by stirring until all particles are liquefied.
Combine the cold water and vodka; stir into the Jell-O mixture.
Pour into a bowl, ice cube trays, plastic cups with lids, shot glasses or martini glasses.
Chill in refrigerator until set.
Tips & Warnings
- Replace the cold water with chilled vodka for a much stronger version.
- Although it may look harmless, this concoction can be potent. Consume in moderation.
