Colorful Jello Shots

Key Ingredients You Need

This is a quick recipe that uses only these 4 simple ingredients. You will have perfectly made jello shots in just minutes.

Whipped Cream Vodka: This vodka is whipped and made to mimic the flavor of whipped cream for a sweet and delicious taste. You can however choose to use a different flavor if you would like, but I highly recommend it.

Water: You will need HOT water for the gelatin to allow the ingredient to bloom. Blooming is an action in which the gelatin activates and dissolves when mixed to later be chilled and become firm jello.

Gelatin – It is best to use unflavored gelatin. This will reduce the risk of flavors clashing and allow the full potential of the alcohol to absorb into the gelatin and give a nice strong flavor.

Food Coloring Gel: Be sure to use food coloring gel and not the liquid form to make it blend easier into the ingredients. You will need the colors Neon Pink, Neon Aqua, Neon Yellow, Neon Lime Green.

Supplies You Need

Shot Glasses

How To Make Tie-dye Jello Shots

1. Gelatin. Put the gelatin into Hot water and allow it to sit (bloom) for 5 minutes, then mix until completely dissolved. Pour in the vodka and combine.

2. First Layer. Arrange the 12 shot glasses onto a tray or cookie sheet that can fit in the fridge. Pour the vodka-infused gelatin into each glass halfway and add a small amount of the food coloring using the end of a toothpick and mix. (use different food coloring for each cup, i.e, Neon Pink, Neon Aqua, Neon Yellow, and Neon Green or the same coloring for all) Set in the fridge to chill for an hour.

3. Second Layer. Take the shot glasses out and add the rest of the gelatin into each cup. Use the end of the toothpick to add in the food coloring using a different color than the first layer. Set in the fridge for 2 hours to chill for the best results.
