Boozy Aquarium Cups

Original Recipe


If you plan to use more cups, you will need more Nerds. Additionally, if you want these to really pack a punch, you can infuse the Swedish Fish in vodka overnight before adding them to the cups.

Boozy Aquarium Cups Recipe With Photos


  1. 1 6-oz. package Berry Blue Jell-O
    2 5-oz. boxes Nerds
    1 bag Swedish Fish, mini if possible
    1 cup vodka
    2 cups boiling water
    1 cup cold water


  1. Distribute the Nerds evenly at the bottom of the cups.
  2. Boil 2 cups water, and prepare 1 cup ice-cold water and 1 cup vodka.
  3. Combine the boiling water with the Jello-O mix in a large bowl, ideally one with a pour spout. Stir to combine.
  4. Add the cold water and vodka, and stir to combine.
  5. Pour the Jell-O mix over the Nerds. Don't worry if a few float to the top at first; they'll sink back down.
  6. Refrigerate for 6-10 hours, depending on the size of your cups. Larger cups will take longer.
  7. Remove the cups from the refrigerator, and use a knife to cut slots for the Swedish Fish. Insert the fish into the aquarium cup, focusing on placing the fish on the sides, closest to the glass, as opposed to the middle of the Jell-O.
  8. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
