  • Layout plastic cups on a baking sheet without the lids on. Set aside.
  • Place gelatin mix in a medium mixing bowl or 4-cup liquid measuring cup. Pour in boiling water and whisk until gelatin is completely dissolved. Pour in vodka and cold water. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into each plastic cup, filling until almost full.
  • Refrigerate the shots for 2-3 hours or until set. Put lids on cups and store in the fridge until ready to serve.


  • You can use any flavor of Jell-O you like. I grabbed grape, orange, cherry, lime, and berry blue. Each 3-ounce box of gelatin mix will make about 10 shots, so it's good to make a few different flavors.
  • Want to kick these shots up a notch? Omit the 1/2 cup cold water and use 1 cup vodka instead. Just be sure to warn your friends!
