I want to make vegan jello/jelly shots for an upcoming party. I am not vegan, have never made regular jello shots, and have never used agar. Please advise.

I'm looking for first-hand experience to find the best formulas, the best alcohol to use, and the best flavoring. I want to make the vegan shots as similar to regular jello shots as possible, as most people at the party aren't vegan, and I don't want them to think the shots are gross or (too) weird. From what I can tell, the flavoring in the shots comes from the fruit juice you add as well as the liquor, so I've considered trying to make the jelly equivalent of my favorite drink: cranberry juice, limoncello, gin or vodka. Does that sound good? Should I make a variety of flavors? How boozey can I make them before they get gross?
Basically, I want to know everything about vegan jello shots that you can tell me. Go nuts.
