Blue Hawaiian Jello Shots

 Jello Shots!!

Jello Shots!!

Lately we've been on the BIGGEST Jello Shot kick!

I like to make mine more like I make my cocktails.  I mean anyone can mix some jello, water and vodka and call it a day, but I like mine to have a bit more flavor than just that.

Blue Hawaiian Jello Shots

Now let's talk a moment about this Jello Shot recipe I created.

First off it's called a Blue Hawaiian.  

No it's not BLUE.

I get that.

Now, if you do a Google search for Blue Hawaiian Jello Shots....well, they're mostly blue. 

I'll tell you why.  They use Berry Blast Blue Jello to make them.

What's the problem with that?

There's no blue berry flavor in a Blue Hawaiian.  So why are we putting it in our Jello Shots?  Simply to make the shot blue.

Like I said, I make mine to taste like a cocktail and in this case I want it to taste like a Blue Hawaiian.

The green color is a pretty and what's even better? 

It's freaking delicious!

Seriously!  Delicious and OH so easy to make!  Here's how:

Pour the Jello mix into a bowl and set aside.  Boil the water.  

Pour the water into a bowl that has the Jello powder waiting.  Stir well for 2 whole minutes.

Add in the coconut rum.

The pineapple juice.

The blue curacao.

Stir everything together.

I usually lay my 2 ounce plastic containers out like this on a paper towel.  That way if anything drips it goes directly onto the paper towels and not my counters.

I use this pancake pourer to pour my jello shot liquid.  It minimizes my mess.

Fill up the containers.  I usually fill them about 3/4 way full.  When I do that I get "roughly" 17-19 Jello shots. 

For this batch I got 19.  When you are done, put the lids on top and stick them in the fridge overnight.  

The longer they sit in the fridge the better they taste.  I prefer to have mine sit for 2 days.

You can dress them up when you are ready to serve with a tiny pineapple slice if you'd like.  I serve mine as is, no extra fluff, just the jello shot.

Here's my recipe for these AMAZING Jello Shots!
