Patriotic Jello Shots

Our 4th of July pool party is just around the corner, so we are starting on early party prep activities.  We decided to kick-up the standard jello shots with new-and-improved patriotic jello shots.  We just love how they turned out!

The two-toned red and blue turned out perfectly and the addition of the whipped cream added a bit of whimsy.  They took a little bit longer than standard jello shots, but are totally worth it.

Patriotic Jello Shots

(1) 3 oz. package berry blue Jello-O
(1) 3 oz. package cherry Jello-O
1 liter vodka, chilled
36 plastic shot glasses

1. Place shot glasses on a baking sheet and set aside.

2. Pour berry blue Jello-O into a medium bowl and set aside.

3. Place 8 ice cubes in a 1 cup measuring cup.  Fill to top with chilled vodka.

4. Heat 1 cup of water in the microwave.  (In my microwave, I heat on high for 90 seconds.)

5. Pour hot water into the bowl over Jello-O.  Whisk until fully dissolved.

6. Add ice/vodka mixture to bowl.  Whisk until ice is melted and liquids are incorporated.

7. Pour mixture into plastic shot glasses, up to the half-way point.

8. Place baking sheet, with partially filled shot glasses, in the refrigerator for 3 hours.

9. Repeat steps 2-8 with the cherry Jell-O.

10. Just before serving, top with whipped cream.

Makes approximately 3 dozen Patriotic Jell-O shots.  Jell-O shots last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
