Do Jello shots taste like vodka?

For liquors within the 30-40% range, experimentwithratios to see what tastes good. For anything 40% orover(vodka is the go-to for most jell-o shots andtendsto be 40%+), be cautious with the 1:1 ratio even if youlikethat strong, bitter taste. It's REALLY easy toaccidentallyovereat jell-o shots!
