    rosie316's Note:

    I love to create new surprises for our neighborhood gatherings, so this is one that I've made in the past, but the most recent that I've posted. I think that they may be made non-alcoholic by using more flattened root beer to replace the schnapps and vodka and adding a drop of vanilla extract (but I've never tried). *NOTE: Prep time includes cooling and refrigeration time. I hope you enjoy them.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (3/4 ounce) envelope knox unflavored gelatin
    • 10 ounces flattened root beer (your favorite brand)
    • 1/2 cup root beer Schnapps (your favorite brand)
    • 1/4 cup vanilla vodka (your favorite brand)
    • real whipping cream (aerosol) (optional)


    1. 1
      In a small saucepan, pour in the flattened root beer and then sprinkle the unflavored gelatin over the top. DO NOT STIR and DO NOT HEAT. Allow to sit for 2-3 minutes.
    2. 2
      Whisk pan ingredients together and place the pan over medium heat and bring to a boil while stirring frequently to make sure that the gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat.
    3. 3
      Allow to cool to room temperature.
    4. 4
      In the meantime, line up shot glasses on a sheet pan.
    5. 5
      Once cooled, add the root beer schnapps and vanilla vodka. Stir/whisk until well combined.
    6. 6
      Pour the mix into little, plastic shot glass cups and place sheet pan into the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, until firm.
    7. 7
      Top each shot with just a tiny squirt of whipping cream, if desired.
