Gelled Raspberry Vodka Shots

Raspberry and vodka go well together. I mean, Smirnoff sells Rapberry Vodka, so there must be a market for it. That was actually what inspired this combination for the jello shots. Gelled Raspberry Vodka Shots are simple to prepare, and are very tasty. Give them a try. You’ll be glad you did.

What will you need to prepare this recipe?

From the Pantry:

  • Raspberry Gelatin
  • Vodka (You might not keep this in your pantry, but since I don’t have a bar, or a liquor cabinet, that’s where you will find my bottle of vodka.)

This is only the second time that I’ve made “jello shots.” The first time was when I made Cherry Rum and Coke Gelatin Shots. They turned out well, according to my taste testers, but I thought they had too much rum in them. Of course, I have to tell you that I don’t really drink, so I’m probably not a good judge of the appropriate alcohol content. I also thought that these had too much vodka in them, but my taste testers insisted that they were perfect. I’m trusting them on this since they actually drink alcohol on a regular basis.

You may have noticed that I topped these with fresh raspberries in the photos above. That’s totally optional. I thought they looked prettier this way, but three of my five taste testers just took the berries off and put them on a plate on the table before ingesting their shots, so I don’t think my garnish was all that popular.
