Best Vodka For Eyeball Jello Shots?

You can use any kind of vodka for this recipe, but I recommend using a higher quality vodka for the best tasting shots.

Or simply use your favorite, you know you already love it.

Equipment

  • Saucepan
  • Measuring Cup
  • Whisk
  • Baking Sheet
  • 2 oz Plastic Shot Glasses (here’s the ones I use: condiment cups for jello shots)

Ingredients

All you need are 4 ingredients to make these easy Halloween eyeball jello shots:

RED JELLO: You can use strawberry jello or cherry jello, whichever is your preference. Strawberry is my favorite!  Note: 1 box of jello makes 12 of these boozy treats.

VODKA: Use your favorite vodka and remember, the better the vodka you use, the better they will taste! You’ll need 1 cup of vodka.

WATER: 1 cup of water for dissolving the jello.

GUMMY EYEBALLS: The candy eyeball on top makes it extra spooky! I love the red bloodshot veins that make them scary. Plus, they taste yummy too.

Eyeball Jello Shots Recipe

The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the jello to set up! Here’s the step-by-step directions:

STEP 1: Add the water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.

STEP 2: Remove from heat, pour in the box of gelatin, and stir with a whisk for 3 minutes or until completely dissolved.

STEP 3: Add vodka and stir well.

STEP 4: Arrange the plastic shot cups on a baking sheet. This just makes it easier to move the jello shots in and out of the refrigerator.

STEP 5: Pour jello shot mixture into the small cups, filling them almost to the top. Leaving a little room to add the eyeball.

TIP: Use a funnel or a measuring cup with a spout to easily fill up the mini shot cups.

STEP 6: Chill for 2 hours at a minimum for the jello to set up.

STEP 7: Remove from the refrigerator, and add a gummy eyeball to the top of each cup.

STEP 8: Return to the refrigerator and chill until ready to serve.

Variations

  • Use a matching berry vodka to give this tasty jello shot even more flavor.
  • Use a different alcohol. Try it with white tequila or a white rum for a completely different flavor.
  • Omit the vodka and add 1 cup of water for a kid friendly spooky treat.

Tips

  • Anytime you’re making boozy jello shots, add the alcohol after you’ve dissolved the jello powder in the hot water. If you add it while boiling, some of the alcohol will evaporate.
  • Make sure to use the 2 oz plastic cups. The 1 ounce plastic cups are way too small for Eyeball Jello Shots.
