What do you think Bill Cosby would say if he knew I was adulterating his precious Jello with vodka?
I love Jello shots because they’re a naughty take on a classic childhood favorite. I giggle when they jiggle, and the buzz is just a plus. They’re the perfect way to use up flavored vodkas, and you can mold them into a thematic shape for any occasion! (Baby showers and children’s birthdays, not advised.)
If you’ve never made them before, here’s how:
- 1 cup Whipped Cream flavored Vodka
- 1 cup water
- A package of strawberry Jello
Then you just follow the directions on the package. Mix 1 cup boiling hot water with the Jello powder until it’s totally dissolved. Then add a cup of VERY cold vodka (I store mine in the freezer beforehand).
Then give it a stir and pour into your chosen container. I found these cute little ice cube molds at Target for $1. A quick spritz of Pam helped them slide out smoothly after they cooled in the fridge. Now they’re the perfect, popable, bite-size grown-up treat!
