Making Jello shots

We generally use cheap Vodka, but you can use other liquors - but beware because some don't taste so good together. Like raspberry jello and tequilla? Lime with coconut rum? Eww. Tequilla is really good in the blue jello.

Basically, you do 1/2 and 1/2. So if it is a 6oz package of jello you would follow the basic directions like this:
Boil 2 cups of water (we microwave it)
Completely disolve the jello in it
Stir in 2 cups of cold vodka

Then pour it into something to set. We use the 2oz size plastic cups from GFS. Refrigerate until set. Since we make so many, we do 4 cups water, 2 large (or 4 small) jellos, 4 cups vodka at a time.

Being winter in Ohio (um, it's 19 degrees out) we just stack them in coolers in the garage with the lid open and it's cold enough for them to set.

How do you eat them? Well, you're not supposed to top them with whip cream and use a spoon. Some say if you use anything other than your tongue it's cheating.

I'm off for a play date with Mini J!


  1. LOL, great, I made a link...funny how I took those pics and seems like I always make friends when we travel...each place we stopped we were hanging out, drinking, laughing...

    I also did not expect so many comments on that...I was afraid I would look like a lush, but I am really a moderate drinker!

    I agree the tongue or nothing...

  2. There's always room for jell-o...

  3. Thanks for the recipe, now I just need to go shopping..

  4. You got me cracking up, I guess we all got the same goddess in us...

    Wunderwoman- get your Jello on girl and have one...well ten for me! Whoa!

    Jello Goddess Hoodchick...
