Grape Creamsicle Jello Shots
November 25, 2016
Cream and jello go really well together. Grape Creamsicles are more rare than orange ones, but I swear they are just as good, if not arguably better! So it's a perfect marriage for a jello shot! It's a pretty simple recipe.. you take a grape jello shot and cover it in whipped cream. BAM! It's a shot made in heaven.. it's so easy.. yet so pleasy!
1Gather your ingredients! Whipped Cream, Vodka, Grape Jello.
2Bring one cup of water to a boil. I recommend you use an electric kettle—they boil fast! We've had this "Brentwood" model for 6 years now, and it's still going strong.
3Choose a good mixing bowl. One with a pouring lip helps. This Oxo type is just about the perfect bowl.To your bowl, combine 1 cup of boiling water with a box of Grape Jello. Keep stirring until everything is dissolved, which will take about 1 minute.
4Add 1 cup of cold vodka and, and stir for 1 more minute. And side note: Science tells us that your jello shots will solidify better in the fridge if your liquor is as cold as possible when you combine it to the boiling hot Jello. Not sure why, but it just works best.
5Now you're ready to pour some jello shots! Carefully pour the mixture into little plastic shot glass cups. Be careful, it's real easy to be messy and waste that precious alcoholic liquid! It may help to move the jello into a smaller more manageable container at this point, from which to pour the shots from.

6Let the shots chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours and you're good to go!
7Slather some of that whipped cream on top of those babies, and consume immediately!
