What are Vodka Jello Shots?
Vodka jello shots are a popular party staple which combines the fun and flavor of jello with the kick of vodka. They're typically served in small plastic cups or fancy containers, making them easy to enjoy in just one or two bites. Not only are they visually appealing, but they also taste delicious and pack a punch.
Choosing the Right Ingredients
To make perfect vodka jello shots, you'll need the following ingredients:
Your choice of vodka is crucial. A good-quality vodka will make for smoother and better-tasting shots. Vodka with a higher proof will create stronger shots, but ensure you don't go overboard on the alcohol content as it might hinder the jello from setting properly.
Jello is available in various flavors, so get creative! You can choose a jello flavor that complements your vodka or go for a bold contrasting taste. Alternatively, you can use unflavored gelatin and add your own flavors with fruit juice or other ingredients.
3. Cold liquid
This can be water or another cold liquid that complements the flavor of your jello. If you're using flavored gelatin, make sure to use a liquid that doesn't overpower the jello.
To make vodka jello shots, you'll need the following:
- A stirring utensil (whisk or spoon)
- A mixing bowl
- A saucepan
- Measuring cups
- Plastic shot cups or fancy containers

- Empty the jello packet into a mixing bowl.
- Add boiling water to the jello and stir until it's completely dissolved (about 1-2 minutes).
