Pina Colada Jello Shots

(makes 12 shots)



  • 1 envelope of Knox gelatin powder (1 tablespoon)
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut water
  • 1/4 cup Bacardi
  • 1/4 cup Malibu
  • 12 maraschino cherries (rinsed and dried)
  • 12 two-ounce plastic cups with lids


  1. Line up plastic cups on a small baking sheet for easy transporting to the refrigerator. Set these near your stovetop.

  2. In a small mixing bowl, sprinkle the gelatin powder over 1/4 cup water and mix in loosely, allowing the powder to soak in for at least 2 minutes. This will "bloom" the gelatin to make sure there are no unsaturated lumps of gelatin powder.

  3. With the 1/2 cup boiling water on the stovetop, add sugar to the boiling water and whisk until dissolved.

  4. Pour the boiling sugar water into the gelatin and whisk until the gelatin is dissolved.

  5. Add the pineapple juice, coconut water, Bacardi and Malibu. Whisk to combine.

  6. Pour jello mixture into prepared cups. Refrigerate uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes until jello had begun to thicken.

  7. Remove jello from the fridge and place one cherry in the center of each cup. Press gently down to partially submerge the cherry. Refrigerate until completely set, about 2-3 hours.

  8. Cover each cup with a lid and refrigerate until ready to serve.
