Red, White, and Blue Layered Gelatin Shots will be the hit of your summer party.

Celebrate all summer long, whether it’s for the 4th of July, Memorial Day, or just a fun summer BBQ! You can change out flavors and colors of gelatin for different themes that taste yummy. It takes time to let each color set before adding the next on top, but the results look amazing and are worth the wait. 

Time: 3 hours 30 minutes | Servings: 12


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups vodka, divided
  • 4 cups boiling water, divided
  • 1 box berry blue gelatin dessert (3 oz)
  • 1 box strawberry red gelatin dessert (3 oz)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin


Blue Layer:

Pour the blue gelatin into a bowl. Add 1 cup boiling water, stir gently until completely dissolved.

Stir in 1 cup of vodka and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.

Carefully pour the liquid into each of the shot glasses, filling ⅓ of the way. Chill for 1 hour or until the layer is set.


White Layer:

Pour the 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin to a mixing bowl and whisk in 2 cups of boiling water, dissolving the gelatin completely.

Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir well to incorporate. Cool for 10 minutes.

Carefully pour on top of the blue layer, dividing it among the glasses evenly. Then chill for 1 hour or until the layer is set.


Red Layer:

Pour the strawberry gelatin into a bowl. Add 1 cup boiling water, stir gently until completely dissolved. Stir in the vodka and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.


Carefully pour on top of the white layer, filling to the top of each glass. Chill for 1 hour.


Important note:

Make sure you allow time in between each layer to let each color set before adding the next layer on top.
