• 0.25 oz packet unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup orange flavored soda/cola (I used Crush Orange soda brand)
  • ½ cup vanilla vodka (such as Smirnoff or Pinnacle brands)


  • squirt heavy whipped cream (I used Reddi-Whip brand)
  • Orange sanding sugar sprinkles


  1. In a large mixing bowl, with a pour spout, stir together the boiling water and the unflavored gelatin until all the gelatin is dissolved. *An 8 cup measuring cup works great for this as it makes it much easier to pour the liquid into the little shot cups.
  2. Add the vanilla vodka and the orange flavored soda to the hot gelatin mixture. Stir well then very carefully pour the liquid into the individual plastic shot cups.
  3. Chill the creamsicle jello shots for 3-4 hours or until firm.
  4. Garnish each jello shot with a squirt of heavy whipped cream and a sprinkle of orange sanding sugar sprinkles.


Storage:Store these jello shots in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, but you wait to garnish them until you are ready to serve them.Tips:

  • Feel free to double, triple, etc. all the ingredients if you’re making these for a party or large crowd.
  • If you place all your empty cups onto a small rimmed tray before filling them with the liquid it will be easier to transfer your Creamsicle Jello Shots to the refrigerator to chill.
  • If you can find a whipped cream vanilla flavored vodka, you can substitute it for the plain vanilla vodka. The whipped cream vanilla vodka is slightly sweeter than a standard vanilla vodka so I highly recommend giving it a try if you can find it in your area.  Smirnoff and Pinnacle brands make a great version of the whipped cream vanilla vodka.
  • Remember that different brands offer different sized disposable shot glass (some even come with lids for storage) so you will just need to fill the vessel of your choice ¾ full to leave space for the garnish. Also note that you will get more servings if you use smaller glasses.
