Ingredients

For the white layers

  • 2/3 Cup water cold
  • 1 Envelope gelatin unflavored, 0.25-ounce/7 gram, such as Knox Gelatine
  • 5 Tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 Cup vodka whipped cream flavored·, such as Smirnoff Whipped Cream

For the pink layers: 

  • 2/3 Cup water cold
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 Envelope gelatin  unflavored, 0.25-ounce/7 gram, such as Knox Gelatine
  • 1 Tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 Cup schnapps high-proof peppermint. I prefer 99-proof 99 Peppermint for this recipe
  • 2 Drops food coloring liquid red

For the garnish (optional): 

Instructions

For the white layers: 

  • In a small saucepan, add cold water, sprinkling gelatin on its surface. Allow the gelatin to bloom for 3 to 5 minutes or until all of the gelatin granules have soaked-up liquid. 
  • Over medium heat, whisk until gelatin has completely dissolved. Add sweetened condensed milk and stir until incorporated. Remove from heat. 
  • Add whipped cream flavored vodka. Stir to mix. Transfer to a heatproof container with a pour spout such as a glass measuring cup. Set aside at room-temperature. 

For the pink layers: 

  • In the same small saucepan, add cold water and sugar. Again, sprinkle the contents of one gelatin packet on the surface of the water. Allow it to bloom for 3 to 5 minutes.  
  • Over medium heat, whisk until gelatin and sugar have completely dissolved. Add sweetened condensed milk and stir until incorporated. Remove from heat. 
  • Add peppermint schnapps and food coloring. Stir to mix. Transfer into another heat-proof container with a pour spout. Set aside at room-temperature. 

To assemble the shots: 

  • Beginning with the pink layer, add about 2 teaspoons to a 1.5-ounce disposable shot glass. Place into the freezer for about 5 minutes or until the top of the gelatin is firm. You should be able to touch the top of the Jello with your finger and it should not stick. 
  • Before pouring your next layer, assure that the white liquid it is at room temperature, which prevents bleeding of the colors into the other layers. Add enough of the white liquid to match the width of the pink layer. Again, place in the freezer for 5 minutes. Continue this process for each layer until the gelatin reaches the top of the shot glass. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Top with whipped cream, crushed candy canes, and sprinkles just before serving.
