Malibu Rum Jello Shot Recipe

Since it does have a fruity flavor, adding Malibu rum to it makes a tropical-tasting jello shot that is easy to make. Since it is not a real fruit flavor, there are no cocktail recipes that convert easily from one into the other. As an added bonus, the coconut flavor balances out the extreme sweetness of the malibu rum jello and makes for a refreshing snack. When my favorite football team (Go Panthers!) is playing a big game, and summer parties (like the 4th of July), I enjoy using them. I’m even a fan when some of my lesser beloved teams play. Similar to other jello shots, these are great for saving time at a party since you can prepare them a couple of days in advance and keep them in the fridge until the party day.
