    Substitute 1/2 the water in the recipe with vodka!

    vodka is the best... you can also add some puckers to kick up the flavors.. i.e. watermelon jello with vodka and sour apple pucker or watermelon pucker..

    i use the reg jello size pack.. i think 3oz...mix in 1 cup boiling water to the jello... then in the measuring cup put 1/3 cup with the pucker add vodka to the cup til you get to the 1/2 cup mark then put cold water til you reach the 1 cup mark.. mix that in... poured them into separate cups (i got mine from party city.. they were actually jello shot cups with lids) i stacked them in the fridge and served them the next day with some whipped cream...

    you can do half hot water, half vodka but they dont taste that good.

    Yeah vodka is pretty good...

    but if you want some really strong jello shots, use EVERCLEAR!

    those will be some super strong jello shots. Good times...

    Vodka, that way you will really be able to taste the jello flavor and not the booze.

    Here is the recipe:

    Vodka. Cut half the water. Replace with vodka!

    I personally like doing cocktail jell-o shots; like margarita ones with lime jell-o, the cold water replaced with tequilla. You can also do pina colada ones with pineapple jello and coconut rum( coconut rum isn't all that strong, so I'd replace maybe 3/4 of the water with coconut rum, instead of half). You can also do strawberry daquiri ones with strawberry jellow and half rum half water. Be creative, have fun and happy birthday!!!
