IRISH FLAG SHOTS

OK, so first off, I LOVE these shots! They are tasty, have alcohol in them, look super cool and are the PERFECT item to bring to a potluck. Sure, everyone loves a good spinach dip but what they really want is a colourful shot made with Jello and vodka.

In an effort not to mislead anyone, these are not an ‘oh shit I forgot to make something for the potluck tomorrow, lemme whip up a batch of these’ type of potluck item. No. These take time. Usually I’ll start making them three days out, doing a colour a day until the party. I have done a colour one night, one the next morning, one that evening, giving the total time just a day and a half but that’s because I was naive and wasn’t aware they were going to be a requested item at the party I was going to.

Along with making too much Irish Soda Bread and juggling yelling Spuddys, my next St. Patrick’s Day party contribution is 100% these shots. Every year.

Full disclosure, I once woke up the morning after a party and ate one for breakfast forgetting there was vodka in it. Hair of the dog right?!

Before we get started, if anyone needs an HR-friendly St. Patrick’s Day playlist, I made a great one on Spotify: #paddynotpatty – look me up!  

IRISH FLAG SHOTS

(Makes 40 shots)

1 packet of lime green Jello

1 packet of orange Jello

1 can of coconut milk (full fat, like why get healthy now?)

1 packet of gelatine

Vodka or Rum (a clear colourless alcohol works best) 

Step 1: 

Mix 1 cup of boiling water into the green jelly powder until dissolved. Stir slowly. You don’t want to stir too vigorously and create foam! Add 1/2 cup of cold water and 1/2 cup of vodka to the mixture. Carefully fill 1/3 of the shot glasses with the green jello mixture. 

Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight until jello is set. 

Step 2: 

Make up one pouch of gelatine as directed on packet (usually it’s just mix with 1/2 of boiling water but maybe just make sure that’s what it says on the packet you bought). Then mix 1/2 cup of vodka and 3/4 of coconut milk into the gelatine. 

Carefully fill another 1/3 of the shot glasses with the white mixture. 

Return to fridge for another 3hrs or overnight until set. 

Step 3: 

Same as Step 1 but with orange instead of green! 

Mix 1 cup of boiling water into the orange jelly powder until dissolved. Stir slowly. You don’t want to stir too vigorously and create foam! Add 1/2 cup of cold water and 1/2 cup of vodka to the mixture. Carefully fill the last 1/3 of the shot glasses with the orange jello mixture. 

Return to fridge for another 3hrs or overnight until set. 

BOOM. 

IRISH FLAG SHOTS and you’re the hit of the party! 

*You can also make these non-alcoholic by subbing water where ever you see ‘vodka’.
