Glowing Shots

A Halloween party is not one if it is not lit! To great evils the great remedies! Here’s a flashy recipe that will not fail to impress your friends!


2 c. tonic water, divided
2 packages Jell-O (two flavors; we used pineapple and orange)
1 c. water
1 c. vodka


Make the first layer: Pour one cup tonic water into a pot over high heat. Once it comes to a boil, add the pineapple Jell-o mix. Whisk until the mix has dissolved, then pour in half a cup of water and half a cup of vodka. Stir to combine.

Pour the Jell-o into shot glasses, filling them about two-thirds of the way up. Place in the refrigerator to chill, 30 to 35 minutes.

Make the second layer: As they set, start making the orange Jell-o, following the same process used for the pineapple Jell-o.

Top each of the pineapple Jell-o shot glasses with the orange Jell-o mixture. Return the shots to the fridge to set, 2 to 3 hours.

* To really make these shots glow, use only tonic water—not half tonic, half tap water—but fair warning: It'll make the shots a little bitter.

Now, turn off the lights and let the party begin!  Woop Woop!
