After the amazing Jello Shots from Cinco De Mayo I've been on, what you could call, a Jello Shot kick! It kind of reminds me of college, but I'm aming for the more sophisticated version this time around. I definitely did not have the patience to make these type of Jello Shots in college, I barely had the patience to clean my dorm room!
Anyway onto the shots....
Makes 16 Jello Shots
1 package (3 oz) watermelon jello
1 package (3 oz) berry blue jello
2 cup Malibu Coconut Rum
2 cups boiling water
8 oz heavy whipping cream
1/2 – 3/4 cup sugar (depending on your sweetness preference). Boil 1 cup of water. Empty watermelon jello packet into a large bowl. Pour boiling water over jello powder. Stir until jello dissolves. Add one cup of coconut rum. Stir. Pour into shot glasses filling the glass only 1/3 of the way. Refrigerate for 4-8 hours or until jello is firm.

** Feel free to switch out the alcohol for your preference type. This could work well with Watermelon Liquor or Blueberry Stoli although with the Blueberry Stoli you can taste the hint of Vodka.
In a large bowl, beat heavy whipping cream and sugar together until stiff peaks form.
When ready to serve, top shots with whipped cream!
*You can also take the lazy version here & purchase whipped cream. It's OK I give you permission to take the easy route this time around.
