  1. What size box for the jello package? I bought the large 6 oz one however I feel like this is for the smaller half size boxes.

    • Hi there,

      This is for the 3oz size box that usually requires 1 cup boiling water and 1 cup cold water. In this recipe, you’ll use the 1 cup of boiling as usual, but only use 1/2 cup cold and use vodka for the other 1/2 cup!
