To make tasty vodka Jell-O shots, begin by selecting a flavor of Jello-O. The commonly sized 3-ounce box of Jello-O is combined with 1 cup of hot water, a half cup of cold water and a half cup of vodka. This recipe makes approximately 16 one-ounce shots.
Heat 1 cup of water in a sauce pan until it is almost boiling and remove from heat. Stir Jello-O into the hot water until it is dissolved. Add a half cup of cold water and a half cup of vodka and stir. Pour liquid into shot cups, mold or baking pan and refrigerate for two hours.
Peach Schnapps can be substituted for the cold water to add a candy flavor to the Jello-O shots. Triple sec is another alternative to the half cup of cold water to add a tart taste. Flavored vodka further enhances the flavor of the Jello-O shots. Three Olives brand vodka offers many flavors that can be used in a Jello-O shots recipe including orange, pineapple, peach, cherry, blueberry, vanilla and strawberry.
