  • 3 packets unflavored gelatin divided
  • 2 cups water divided
  • 7 oz sweet condensed milk only comes in 14 oz size, so 1/2 of a can
  • 1 cup vanilla vodka divided and chilled
  • 3 oz box lime or green apple gelatin
  • 2-3 drops orange gel food color
  • Whipped cream and sprinkles for garnish


  •  In a small saucepan, add 1 cup of water.  Let it come up to a boil and then remove from heat.
  • Add 1 packet of unflavored gelatin to the boiling water. Whisk until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
  • Add the green jello mix into the saucepan and whisk until dissolved.
  • Add 1/3 cup chilled vodka and stir well.
  • Pour the green mixture into the bottom third of each shot glass. Chill for 1 hour or until the gelatin has "set."
  • Wash the small saucean out for the second layer.
  • Bring 1 cup water up to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat. 
  • Add the 2 remaining packets of unflavored gelatin into the boiling water. Stir vigorously until dissolved.
  • Add in the sweetened condensed milk and 2/3 cup of chilled vodka. Mix will to incorporate.
  • Pour half of the white gelatin mixture into a microwave safe bowl, cover and chill for later use.
  • For the second layer, pour the remaining white gelatin mixture into each shot glass, filling it 2/3 of the way.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the gelatin to "set."
  • When the second layer is set, remove the remaining white gelatin from the refrigerator. It will be set like jello, so you will need to microwave and stir it in 20 second increments until completely melted and smooth.
  • Add 2-3 drops of orange food coloring and stir until the food color is thoroughly incorporated.
  • Pour the orange gelatin on top of second layer, filling up to the top of each glass.  Chill for 30 minutes.
  • Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkles. This is totally optional. I love the shots without out.
