Basic alcohol pudding shot recipes like vanilla and chocolate are always gluten-free, providing the liquor used conforms to gluten-free standards. More complicated gluten-free flavors include limoncello, caramel apple and chocolate caramel.
Basic alcohol pudding shots are made to retain only the flavor of pudding used to create them. Mix a box of instant pudding, 1 cup of whole or skim milk, and 8 ounces of Cool Whip with 1 cup of gluten-free liquor. Vodkas produced with grapes, potatoes or corn, including the popular Smirnoff and Ciroc brands, are safe for a gluten-free diet and are masked well by the pudding's flavor.
To make gluten-free Limoncello pudding shots, mix a box of instant lemon pudding, 3/4 cup of milk, 1/4 cup gluten-free vodka, and 1/3 cup of Limoncello. Fold in 8 ounces of Cool Whip, and freeze.
To make gluten-free caramel apple pudding shots, use a box of butterscotch pudding, 1 cup of milk, and 8 ounces of Cool Whip. Add 1/2 cup each of gluten-free apple vodka and Bailey's Irish Cream, which is also gluten-free. Top with cinnamon, and freeze.
When making gluten-free chocolate caramel pudding shots, mix a box of chocolate fudge pudding with 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of gluten-free caramel vodka. Add 8 ounces of Cool Whip, and freeze.
Pudding shots should be stored and served in 2-ounce plastic soufflé cups. They should be kept frozen until ready to serve.
