Watermelon Vodka Shots are Perfect for Parties

Print Recipe

This is so cool! Watermelon Vodka Shots definitely have that "wow" factor that will amaze your friends, while at the same time being super simple to make. Definitely a win-win recipe in my books!

You can make these without alcohol for a fun kids' party treat, and make sure to save the scooped out watermelon for snacking on later - it's delish! We used vodka in ours, but you can experiment with different kinds of liquor and flavors of jello. Have fun and enjoy responsibly!


  • 1 watermelon

Red Layer

  • 1 cup hot water
  • Strawberry jello package
  • 1 cup strawberry vodka

Blue Layer

  • 1 cup hot water
  • Blue raspberry jello package
  • 1 cup blue raspberry vodka

Yellow Layer

  • 1 cup hot water
  • Lemon jello package
  • 1 cup citrus vodka


Cut your watermelon in half and scoop out the insides (save for snacking on later).

Combine the hot water, strawberry jello and strawberry vodka.

Pour the mixture into the hollowed out watermelon.

Place the watermelon in the fridge to let the jello set (2 hours).

Repeat these steps for the blue and yellow layers. Make sure to give the jello time to set before adding another color.

Once all the layers are set, slice up your watermelon into wedges and enjoy!
