Total Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes
3 oz Jell-O or other gelatin (any flavor)
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup (4 ounces) vodka (or other distilled spirit)
1/2 cup cold water

Chill the liquor and cold water mix in the refrigerator so they are a consistent temperature. Pour gelatin into a bowl. Add boiling water, stirring until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in chilled liquor and water mix and food coloring (optional). Pour into shot glasses, molds, or a baking pan for a sheet of Jell-O to cut up once set. Tip: The small, plastic shot cups are perfect because the drinker can just squeeze the shot out. Refrigerate until the liquid sets. (At least 2 hours, but overnight refrigeration is recommended) Serve cold. Next call SlackerTown and leave us a message at the end of your party! 321.600.1200
