It's Jello with a kick. Vodka is mixed with any fruit flavored gelatin and drunk in a shot glass.

My cousin, the gelatin shot queen, taught me the trick of lightly spraying the cups with ***original Pam***...(only original Pam works she says), before adding the liquid. The shots will slide out like they are supposed to. Bottoms up! Read More

I make these for parties all the time with all sorts of flavored gelatin. I recommend using flavored liquor and sugar-free gelatin - it seems to help cut the taste of the alcohol a bit. And I was SO excited to see new gelatin flavors of margarita, pina colada, and strawberry daiquiri. Yummy! Read More

My favorite party drink! But as a bartender, I constantly try to improve recipes, so here's what I did. I prepared the Jell-O shots as stated, but on the side used a melon baller to dissect a melon into little balls. I placed the balls on a triple or quadruple paper towel-lined cookie sheet and let them sit at room temperature for a couple of hours, until the paper towels dried the melon balls out. I put the dehydrated melon balls in a bowl filled with vodka (or Everclear alcohol would work) and allowed them to soak, covered, for about an hour. I removed and lightly dried each ball, and placed one into the center of each slightly firm Jell-O shot. Served with whip cream when fully firm. It goes down like water and hits you with a harder punch. You can also put them in a full Jell-O mold or Bundt pan and slice it up for your pleasure. Enjoy!! Read More

This Jello to Vodka ratio worked out very well. They were just the right potency to be a hit with the crowd. Instead of using regular Vodka I used Rasberry Vodka for one batch and Green Apple Vodka on another. Read More
