Strawberries + Cream Jell-O Shots

Strawberries + Cream Jell-O Shots 4

In my opinion we're never too old for Jell-O shots.  I probably enjoy them more frequently now than I did in college.  I think they're great when you're at an outdoor concert or something fun to bring and share at a party.  I'm a big fan of on the go beverages.  I really like getting creative now with all the different flavored vodka options that are in the supermarket.  I bought a bottle of Smirnoff's iced cake vodka for a fancy recipe I saw in People magazine in January and it was not tasty so the partially used bottle has been sitting ever since.  Until I came up with this!

  • Dissolve the package of strawberry jell-o in 2 cups boiling water, stirring until gelatin is dissolved
  • Stir in chilled iced cake vodka
  • Pour mixture into 2oz plastic cups (I buy mine at Smart &Final) 
  • Let shots set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours
  • Spray with a dollop of homemade whipped cream
Strawberries + Cream Jell-O Shots 3

I brought these to a birthday picnic at a winery (classy, I know) and they were a BIG hit!  I'm sharing these now because I thought they'd be fun for you to make in honor of our nation's upcoming birthday.  Maybe drop a blueberry into the whipped cream to achieve the complete red, white and blue look and then bottoms up! :)
