Lime In The Coconut Jello Shots

The ultimate party treat!  These Jello shots are not like any other.  They contain coconut milk which makes them creamy and not harsh like other Jello shots.  Even people who don't care for other Jello shots like these.  Serve these for your next adult party!

Lime In The Coconut Jello Shots

1 Pkg Lemon Jello (large box)
2 Pkg. Lime Jello (large box)
2 Tbsp. Lime juice
2 cups Coconut rum (see cooking tip below)
1 can (13.5 oz.) Coconut milk (shake well before opening)
2¼ cups Water

Bring water to a boil and remove from heat. Slowly stir in all 3 Jello packages into the water until the gelatin is dissolved. Add the coconut milk and lime juice and stir. Add coconut rum and stir.

Pour into individual 1 oz. size plastic cups (condiment cups) and chill until set. You may have to stir occasionally to keep the coconut milk incorporated while filling the cups.  Don't worry, the coconut milk will settle at the top of the shot giving them a little two tone look. The shots are quite firm.  If you don't have access to the plastic cups, pour into a 9" x 13" dish and chill until set.  Precut into squares before serving, they are quite firm and are just like finger jello.  Make sure to keep them cool as they will turn back to liquid if they get too warm.

Cooking Tip

Since flavored alcohol can be quite expensive. I use 1 1/2 cups of regular rum and 1/2 cup of the coconut syrup like what is used in the coffee shops.
