By

Just about every cocktail under the sun can be turned into a Jello Shot, from rummy Eggnog to bourbon apple cider. But if you’re looking to keep things simple with a Jello Shot that everyone will enjoy, no matter their spirit preferences, you can count on vodka Jello Shots to please the masses. Its neutral flavor allows for other ingredients to shine, making for a truly delicious shooter. Here, our seven favorite Jello Shots made with vodka.

Whether you’re hosting a Fourth of July party, honoring the Patriots on gameday or simply just love ‘Murica, these red, white and blue layered Jello Shots are for you. Prepping them will take some time, as you need to let each individual layer set before adding the next one. But the delectable combo of vodka, strawberry Jell-O, Berry Blue Jell-O and sweetened condensed milk will make your efforts worth it.

Milk’s favorite cookie is also vodka’s favorite Jello Shot. Break out the condensed milk (we promise the sweet, jiggly version of it is insanely good), spike it with vodka and gelatin, and spread it out in a tray. Once set, you just need to cut out circles with a cookie cutter and place them between Oreo cookies. What you do with the cookie’s original creamy inside is up to you.
