8 oz. vodka

12 2 oz. size plastic cups with lids

3 cups cranberries

1 1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

  1. Prepare cranberry Jell-O according to the box.

  2. Now add vodka to the Jell-O mixture and whisk until well combined.

  3. Pour the cranberry jello shots mixture into your plastic cups leaving some room for garnishing. Then chill for at least 4 hours. Once chilled you can place the lids on if you wish.

  4. To make the sugared cranberries, combine 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then let it simmer on low heat for about 3 minutes.

  6. Remove cranberries from the sugar mixture and lay on a tray lined with parchment paper. Let the cranberries dry out on the tray for about 1 hour.
