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.
Making Gelatin Shots is a simple process, and they are a great thing to serve at your next party.
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.

Gelled Raspberry Vodka Shots
- 1 (8 serving) box raspberry gelatin regular or sugar free ($0.99)
- 1/2 cup boiling hot water
- 2 1/2 cups cold water
- 1 cup vodka ($2.98)
- Dissolve raspberry gelatin in the boiling water, stirring for several minutes until fully dissolved.
- Add cold water to gelatin mixture and stir to incorporate.
- Add vodka to gelatin mixture and mix well to fully combine.
- Arrange 2 ounce portion cups in a baking pan.
- Pour the gelatin mixture into 2 ounce portion cups.
- Place the lids on the portion cups if desired. (I did this, so I could stack the shots on top of each other in the pan while they chilled in the fridge.)
- Place in the refrigerator for 4 hours to fully congeal. (I would make these the day before if I wanted them for a party to ensure they were fully set.)
