How To Make Vodka Jello Shots

While recipes can vary, the most common way of making vodka jello shots is the following:

  1. Combine 1 3oz package of jello with 1 cup of boiling water and stir until the jello dissolves
  2. Pour in a 1/2 cup of cold water and a 1/2 cup of vodka to the jello mixture
  3. Stir until combined, then pour into shot cups
  4. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until the shots are firm

This will make 12-16 shots depending on how strong your pours are.

The following vodka jello shot recipes use this method or variations of this method, but you can take lot of creative liberties when making jello shots.

Ultimately, the only real rules are 1. you need to have equal parts boiling liquid and cold liquid so it mixes and freezes properly and 2. you don’t want to boil the vodka for obvious reasons.

The Best Vodka For Jello Shots

Ultimately, any vodka will mix in fine with jello, so the best vodka for jello shots comes down to your price point, preference, and the recipe.
