Step By Step  

Root beer floats are all grown up and turned into boozy jelly shots!

As prepared by E is for Eat,

Cute root beer float jelly shots are the perfect sweet and creamy treat for your next party. 

So ... I have a confession to make.

You know when you went to other kids’ birthday parties growing up? And they had root beer floats for dessert? I was the kid who was never really super duper excited about it. 

I don’t know what it is. I’m not a huge root beer fan for some reason. 

But you know what I *am* a fan of? 

Root beer float jelly shots. 

Go figure. Add a little booze to the equation, and suddenly I’m the biggest root beer fan around.

So, I guess what I’m saying is: If you’re a root beer fan (and even if you’re not) you’re probably going to like these jelly shots!

 

Root Beer Float Jelly Shots

First, pour the root beer in a small saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin. Allow it to soak in a minute or two. It will look all weird and alien-like.

Heat on low and stir until gelatin dissolves. Pour in vodka and water and stir. It may bubble up initially, but it'll settle down. To make it taste more like a real root beer float, make sure to grab a vanilla or whipped cream vodka. (You’ll thank me later.)

 

Root Beer Float Jelly Shots

Pour mixture into shot glasses, filling about 3/4 to leave room for whipped cream later. Place in the fridge and allow shots to set for 3-4 hours.

While shots are setting, cut straws so they'll fit in the glasses and stick out the top a little bit. (Mine were slightly less than half a straw).

When ready to serve, insert straws into the side of shots and top with whipped cream.

Howwwwww cute are these? Mini root beer shots, mini straws, mini cups of goodness! And as an extra bonus, the straws will help your guests dislodge the shots from the cups.
