Vodka Jello Jigglers With Raspberry Jello


These vodka jello jigglers are perfect for any get together or just to whip up on a random Sunday afternoon.

Hello, I’m Amy and I blog at I usually do crafts or DIY, but I occasionally like to make a delicious, easy dessert.

My kids have been obsessed with Jello lately, and my husband and I love a good mule, so I decided to mix the two! I think summer is all about having fun and what screams more fun than jello.

Also, the sparkling aspect of this, I think up-levels a jello shot. It makes it a little fancier, while still being easy and fun!

How to Make Raspberry Vodka Jello Jigglers

This raspberry jello mule is the perfect summer dessert. It’s refreshing and has the tiniest bit of fizz to keep it interesting.

Vodka Jello Jiggler Shot Tips:

I can only find 6 ounce packets of jello

No problem! Sometimes it can be hard to find the 3 ounce packets. You can either double the recipe, or use a scale.

I originally bought 2- 6 ounce packages of jello to make this recipe, but of course one of the bags had a rip in it when I got it home. Isn’t that always the way!

I made these for an event and so I didn’t have time to run to the store. So instead I got out my scale and measured 3 ounces of jello, so that I could make one with alcohol and one without for the kids.

Just make sure to use 1.5 cups of liquid for every 3 ounces of jello. This is a little less than the normal jello recipe, because we want them firmer than jello, but not quite to a jello jiggler texture. Use 1/2 boiling water and the rest the chilled ingredients.

This jello was a big hit with the kids. They loved the sparkling aspect and the sprinkles. Everyone asked for seconds.

If I know kids are going to want some, I always make a non-alcoholic batch for them.

My jello is sticking to the pan, what should I do?

Jello shouldn’t stick to a glass pan. But if you are worried about it or using a plastic dish or mold to make your jello, you can spray some cooking spray on it before hand to make sure the jello won’t stick to the pan.

chill the sparkling drinks before adding

Make sure the sparkling drinks are cold before adding them to the hot water. I also let the hot water and jello mixture cool down for about 15 minutes before pouring in the sparkling drinks.

If the sparkling drinks are warm or warmed too quickly all the fizz will leave and while they’ll still impart flavor, it won’t have the same sparkling effect.

I want to make this alcohol free

No problem! My kids loved the alcohol free version of this. Replace the vodka with more of the lime sparkling water. It tastes delicious and has more of the lime flavor and a little more sparkle compared to the vodka one.

Make Rainbow Jello Shots Too

You can also use this recipe to make fun jello shots! To do that, layer three colors/flavors of spiked jello in some plastic condiment cups. I like Raspberry, Lime, and Blue Raspberry for the best flavors, but be creative and use your favorites.
