Boozy and colorful, these slanted rainbow jelly shots are a fun party treat.
These colorful jelly shots are tipsy. In more ways than one.
And they’re fun. Like follow-the-yellow-brick-road, pot-of-gold-at-the-end-of-the-rainbow fun!
All you need is some gelatin, vodka and a little patience.
First, get packets of gelatin, one in each color of the rainbow. Then in 5 separate bowls or heat-resistant cups, add 1 cup boiling water to each packet of gelatin. Stir until gelatin dissolves and stir in 3/4 cup vodka to each mixture/color.
Then place shot glasses inside openings of a muffin pan and tilt on the edges. Fill the glasses 1/5 of the way with either red or blue gelatin, depending on which way you want your rainbow to go (or a mixture of both).
My shot glasses equaled out to about 2 teaspoons of each of the five colors/flavors of gelatin. Even though it takes a bit longer, I measured it out to achieve more even layers.
Place in fridge and allow to set for about 20-30 minutes. Repeat with the next color in the rainbow and place back in fridge for another 20-30 minutes. Repeat until you have used all 5 colors. When you get to the final layer, your shot can sit upright. Refrigerate another additional 3 hours or overnight.
You can serve the jelly shots as they are without any garnish.
Or when ready to serve, top with a dollop of whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles.
Enjoy the tipsy rainbow!
