Who wouldn't love picking from a colorful array of flavors like these?Check out a few tips for making Jello shots, and then give the recipe a try.
Choosing a Vodka
You can use any kind of vodka for your vodka Jello shot recipes, although it's better to use a middle-ground brand. A very expensive vodka might be wasted since you won't really be able to taste its flavor, and cheap brands might taste too strong and overpower the Jello flavoring.
Picking a Glass
If you're making Jello shots, you need to decide which receptacle to use. If you're making them at home or for a nicer party, consider using nice glassware that will show off your colorful treats. If you're going to a raging party, Dixie Cups are a great option, since they're cheap and disposable. Otherwise, why not try a regular Jello mold?
Using a fine vodka might be a nice surprise if you are catering an a classy event. Imagine the surprise your friends will feel when you show up with Gray Goose or Belvedere Jello shots? You'll be the talk of the party!
Jello Shot Desserts
Another great idea is to turn your Jello shots into real desserts. Why not try using classic Jello molds, creating a colorful dessert with a kick? Pouring your Jello shots into champagne glasses or turning them into a fruit salad will be a fabulous and creative surprise for your party guests.
