Raspberry Vodka Jelly Shots: Recipe

RECIPES | This Raspberry Vodka Jelly shot recipe is fantastic for any party (as long as you over the legal drinking age of course). I originally designed this recipe for Halloween, where I filled 30ml oral syringes with the jelly mixture, labelled them with “zombie virus antidote” and served them in a cooler box with dry ice and a decapitated hand.

I have provided two versions of this jelly shot recipe, one that is designed for syringes and one that is to be used for classic shot cups. The reason behind this is, syringes require a higher alcohol content to make it a looser mix otherwise you won’t be able to push the contents out with the plunger.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes / Setting Time: 2 hours / Makes 25 syringes or 50 shot cups

Ingredients – Syringes

  • 85g packet raspberry jelly crystals
  • 200ml boiling water
  • 200ml vodka
  • 25 oral syringes (30ml)

Ingredients – Shot Cups

  • 85g packet raspberry jelly crystals
  • 250ml boiling water
  • 150ml vodka
  • 50 shot cups (15ml)


  1. Dissolve the jelly crystals in the boiling water.
  2. Add the vodka and stir well.
  3. Evenly divide the mixture into your serving device.
  4. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.


I would like to acknowledge that the shot cup recipe is thanks to our beautiful friend Sijka. She been using this same recipe since our university days which has proved to be very reliable.

Also if you’re wondering about the decorations – the label is a free downloadable image I found on Google which I printed in a small and large size. I then attached the labels to the syringe and cooler box with double sided tape. I then placed 250g of dry ice in the base of the cooler box covered it in several layers of bubble wrap to position the syringes higher in the box. The syringes where then placed on top of the bubble wrap with a plaster of Paris hand. Periodically, we added hot water to the dry ice and a lovely layer of fog would appear.
