  • 1 (6-ounce) package of Jello
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1 1/4 cup chilled alcohol

Step 1

Chill alcohol at least 1 hour prior--not in the freezer, unless the alcohol is over 80-proof, or 40%; anything else might freeze and break the bottle.

Bring water to a rolling boil, then remove from heat. Stir together boiling water and powdered gelatin in a mixing bowl. Stir constantly until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in cold water and alcohol.

Spray the inside of the cups with cooking spray, so the Jello easily slides out of the cups during use. Adding spoons, if you have enough of them, can help, too. Popsicle sticks can serve as a cheaper alternative. Chill in the fridge until solid or overnight.
