Adult beverages are well deserved after all the hard work you've done putting a lovely feast together. So here is a great idea for all adults to enjoy!

You don't have to do sugar-coated cranberries but they are highly recommended plus they make for a great sweet-tart chaser after you've taken the shot.



1 1/2 c.granulated sugar, divided

1 c.fresh cranberries

2(3.4-oz) packets cranberry flavored Jell-O



  1. In medium saucepan over medium heat, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water and stir until sugar dissolves completely. Let cool 20 minutes, then mix in cranberries until coated. 
  2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cranberries, tapping away any excess syrup, into a large resealable plastic bag. Add remaining 1 cup sugar, seal, and shake until cranberries are completely coated. 
  3. Spread out cranberries on a baking sheet and refrigerate until cranberries are completely cool and sugar hardens, 25 minutes. 
  4. Bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add Jell-O mix and whisk until completely dissolved, then remove from heat and stir in vodka and 1 cup cold water. Let cool 2 to 3 minutes. 
  5. Place 18 plastic shot glasses on a baking sheet and pour in Jell-O mixture until each is 2/3 full. 
  6. Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours. 
  7. Top each shot with 1 or 2 sugared cranberries.
