Tropical vibe goin’ on?
These Tropical Pineapple Jello Shots are sure to be a hit. They are sweet, but not too sweet. They have alcohol, but it’s not overpowering. The bright blue color is fabulous.
They are made using the basic concept of how I make all my jello shots – replacing the cold water called for in the instructions on the jello box with alcohol and/or other liquid.
WHAT YOU NEED
• 1 1/2 cups Water
• 1 large box Berry Blue Jello
• 1/2 cup Pineapple Juice + optional pineapple chunks
• 1/2 cup Blue Curacao Liqueur
• 1 cup Malibu Rum
• 24 2oz cups
WHAT TO DO
 boil WATER
Pour 1 1/2 cups water into saucepan. Place on stove over high heat. Bring to boil.
 add JELLO
Once the water is boiling, turn off the heat and pour in contents from the jello packet.
 STIR until dissolved
Using a fork or whisk, stir jello until it is dissolved – usually about a minute.
 add Pineapple Juice
Let cool just slightly, then pour in 1/2 cup of Pineapple Juice.
 add Blue Curacao
Next, add 1/2 cup of Blue Curacao.
 add Rum
Add 1 cup of Malibu Rum to jello mixture. Stir.
 POUR into cups
Pour mixture into small cups. I used 24 2 oz cups.
 REFRIGERATE until nearly firm
Place jello shots in the fridge until jello is almost firm.
 SOAK pineapple chunks in pineapple juice and rum
While jello is in the fridge firming up, place some pineapple chunks in a bowl. Cover pineapple with pineapple juice and rum.
 add PINEAPPLE
After about an hour, remove jello shots from fridge and place a pineapple chunk or two on top.
 REFRIGERATE until ready to serve
Place jello shots back in the fridge until ready to serve.
>>> Variations <<<
Variation 1: If you are not transporting the jello shots, you can slice a pineapple chunk and stick it right on the edge of the cup. Hint: this doesn’t work if you need to place a lid on the cup for stacking and transporting.
Variation 2: Instead of the pineapple, squirt a dollop of whip cream on top.
