We’re taking gelatin shots to a whole new level. If you want to go the extra mile, this is a must for the gram. Just use ½ Part Absolut Vodka, ½ Part Instant Gelatin, 1 Part Boiling Water, and ½ Part ice water. First, mix the instant gelatin with boiling water, add ice water and Absolut, pour into your fav mold and chill for 2 to 4 hours. This serves between 5 to 10 guests.

Now you’re ready to put your skills to the test and impress your guests at your next holiday gathering! With so many different cocktail options, Absolut is also a great gift to give this holiday season. For gifts and holiday recipes, click here!
