Total Time 3 hours 15 minutes
Servings 30 shots


  • 30 2-Ounce Shot Cups with Lids
  • Baking Sheet
  • Injector


  • 1 box Pink Starburst Jell-O 3.93 ounces
  • 1 box Lemon Jell-O 3 ounces
  • 1 box Grape Jell-O 3 ounces
  • 2 ¼ Cups Whipped Cream Vodka
  • 1 ½ Cups Boiling Water
  • 1 ½ Cups Cold Water
  • Whipped Cream optional


  • Line the cups up on a baking sheet that will fit all of them. No lids.
  • Place the yellow jello mix in a medium mixing bowl and add ½ cup boiling water. Mix until no graininess remains.
  • Add ¾ cup vodka and ½ cup cold water to the bowl. Mix well.
  • Using the injector, fill up each shot cup a third of the way.
  • Place in the fridge for an hour or until solidified.
  • Repeat steps 2-4, but use the grape jello instead.
  • Once the purple jello has solidified, repeat steps 2-4 for the pink jello.
  • Once the last layer has solidified, top with some whipped cream, if desired, and enjoy!


  • Do not add whipped cream to the top of your shots if you’re not serving them right away. You’ll want to keep lids on your shots and top them right before serving.
  • For some strange reason, I had to go through three grape jello boxes as it seemed to react differently than the other flavors. If you have an issue with it not setting up, add less liquid, starting with the alcohol. You can also place it in the freezer before placing the last layer on.
  • You can use any vodka or alcohol you prefer, just don’t go over ¾ cup of alcohol in each layer as it won’t solidify if you do.
  • Don’t try and add a new layer until the layer below it is solid. If it’s runny at all, it will make the colors mix.
  • You can keep these in the fridge for up to 5 days, with lids.
  • You can use other means to get the liquid in the cups. However, I have not found anything that works as quickly or cleanly as the injector. Strange? Maybe, but it works.
