Syringe Vodka Jello Shots Ingredients

There are two different layers in these vodka syringe shots – a green layer and a white layer. The green layer is made with Smirnoff lime vodka, lime jello, lemon jello, and water. For the white layer you need more Smirnoff lime vodka, sweetened condensed milk, unflavoured jello, and more water.

You can use a different brand of lime vodka to make jello shots in syringes if you prefer. You can also either use Jell-O or another brand of jello/gelatin.

Don’t sub cream or evaporated milk for the sweetened condensed milk. The flavour will be different, since neither of those are sweet and the texture too, since sweetened condensed milk is pretty thick and you need that for the mixtures in the syringes to combine thickly and suspend the green bits in the white.

How to Make these Halloween Jello Shots

Since the best jello shot syringe recipe is made using jello, you will have to make them in advance so the jello can set properly.

The first step is to whisk together both packages of jello with hot water, then you can mix in the vodka and cold water. Let it set in the refrigerator then cut it in to little pieces and mash them with a spoon or fork. You don’t have to keep the pieces neat or even uniform in size.

The white layer of these syringe cocktail shooters is made by mixing the unflavoured jello powder with cold water then whisking in the hot water. Once the powder has dissolved, you can mix in the sweetened condensed milk and vodka.

Take out the plunger and nozzle cap of a shot syringe and fill it with some of the lime jello. Let it settle to the back by shaking the syringe a little and then suck up some of the white jello mixture.

Shake the syringe again to combine the two mixtures and repeat with the rest of the syringes and jello mixtures. Arrange them in a serving bowl nozzle facing up and let the Halloween jello shots chill for a couple of hours before serving.

Make-Ahead Halloween Jello Shots

Although you can make syringe vodka jello shots ahead and keep them refrigerated, any longer than a couple of days and the green will begin to colour the white part. They’ll still taste good though.

Syringe Vodka Jello Shots FAQs

Do you have to make jello shots in syringes?

You don’t have to make vodka syringe shots. You can use shot glasses if you prefer and mix the green and white components together with a straw or chopstick. However, this is the best jello shot syringe recipe for syringes and you can buy the shot syringes on Amazon. Either 1½ -ounce or 2-ounce shot syringes work for syringe cocktail shooters. Oh and you can reuse the syringes too.

Can you use other jello flavours?

I like to use lemon and lime jello flavours because they’re nice with the lime vodka but you can use other flavours if you prefer. The green colour is more like ectoplasm though, and that’s what we’re going for here.

Try recreating them with red or pink for Valentine’s Day if you want to get creative! You can even make them in regular shot glasses if the syringes are overkill or too unseasonal.

Ingredients

For the green gelatin:

  • 2 Cups water boiling
  • 1 Box lime Jello 3 Ounce/85 gram, lime-flavored
  • 1 Box lemon Jello 3 Ounce/85 gram, lemon-flavored
  • 1 Cup water cold
  • 1 Cup vodka lime, chilled, such as Smirnoff Lime

For the white gelatin:

  • ¼ Cup water cold
  • 1 Package gelatin 0.25 Ounce, unflavored
  • ½ Cup water boiling
  • ¼ Cup vodka lime, such as Smirnoff Lime
  • Cup sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

For the green gelatin:

  • In a heat proof container, add both lime and lemon-flavored gelatin to boiling water. Whisk until dissolved. Stir in cold water and lime vodka. Pour into an 8×8 or 9×9 baking pan. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until completely set.
  • After the gelatin has set-up, remove it from the refrigerator. Using a knife, score gelatin so that it forms small squares. Mix the cubes with a fork or a spoon. Don’t worry about being gentle. A little breakage is a good thing so the pieces are not so uniform. Refrigerate until ready to use.

For the white gelatin:

  • In a heat proof container, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over the top of the cold water. Allow gelatin to bloom for 3 minutes, or until entirely soaked through. You’ll know it has completely soaked through when the gelatin becomes clear and is no longer white.
  • After gelatin has bloomed, whisk in boiling water. Stir until all gelatin has dissolved. Stir in lime vodka and sweetened condensed milk. Set aside.

To assemble the shots:

  • Remove the nozzle cap and the plunger of a 2-ounce shot syringe. With the nozzle end pointing downward, plug the nozzle with your finger (or reattach nozzle cap) and fill the syringe with the cubed lime gelatin about two-thirds full. Carefully flip the syringe nozzle-end-up so that the Jell-O slides down and away from the nozzle and re-insert plunger (if you reattached the nozzle cap to fill the syringe earlier, you’ll need to take it off now). Once gravity has done its job and the Jell-O is completely clear of the nozzle, squeeze out all of the air until the lime gelatin reaches the nozzle tip.
  • Fill the remainder of the syringe by using it to suck up the liquid white gelatin until the plunger reaches the end of the tube. Replace the cap and shake the contents of the syringe, this will further distribute the white area. Stand syringes in a pot or a vase, nozzle-up. Refrigerate for two hours or until set.
