Drink of the Week for May 30th, 2002: Jello Shots

What we had to say

Huzzah! We got a new camera! After the old one was so mercilessly ripped from our grasp by dark, shadowy demons of untold power and evil [Editor's note: It may have been the neighbour's cat... not much difference in the description though], we have been struggling along, hoping that you, the denizens of Internet Land, would have the foresight and wisdom to prevail over the mysterious drink recipes without pictures to guide you. [Editor's note: We actually mean we weren't worried at all... just mad about the camera].

So! Without further ado, we present you a recipe so classic it defies time, space and the RIAA. Jello Shots!

Glass to Use

Drink Colour:



  • 2 Cups Vodka
  • 3 packages Jello

Mixing Instructions

Make the Jell-O as you normally would (usually one cup of boiling water per package of Jell-O). Once you've mixed the Jell-O powder, add in 2/3 the amount of vodka as you used water (ie. if you used 3 cups of water to mix the jell-o, add 2 cups of vodka). Put it in the freezer to set, as vodka requires colder temperatures than regular Jell-O. If you have plastic shot glasses, these are great to chill it in as you can serve them individually. If not, serve with a spoon!
