Rum Jello Shots

Jello shots with rum are yum-yum! Rummy, yummy in the tummy.

Think Fall… What’s an apple pie or a hot toddy without the rum? That would be like fall without the falling leaves!

And what is summertime fun without the coconut rum? Crazy Talk is what that is!

Think you can do Mardi Gras without the Hurricanes? We think not!

Maybe we are just suckers for rum, but wait until you taste the Jellinator’s Rum Jello Shot Recipes. You’ll be putting the lime in the coconut and calling us in morning… just to thank us. Oh yeah.

Here are the basics:

Jellinator Jello Shots with Rum Recipe:

  • 1 cup boiling water or juice*
  • 1 small box jello (3 oz.)
  • ½ cup rum: flavored or spiced, light or dark
  • ½ cup flavored liqueur/ schnapps/ pucker**

Dissolve jello in 1 cup of boiling water. Remove from heat. Add the rum and liqueur. Pour jello mixture in to your Jellinator and fill your shot cups. Refrigerate until set (approximately 3-4 hours).

*Use only CANNED pineapple, kiwi, guava, or papaya juice, as the bromelain enzyme in the fresh fruit or juice will prevent your jello shots from jelling. And that, my friends, would be tragic.

**If you decide to use just rum without schnapps, then increase amount to 2/3 cup rum, etc. plus 1/3 cup water or juice for every 3 oz. box of jello (or 1 cup liquid + Knox gelatin). Otherwise, what’s the point? THEY’RE CALLED SHOTS FOR A REASON, NANCY-BOY!
