There are a few things I love the most, tropical drinks and summer! These Pina Colada Jello Shots combine two of my favorite things and are a staple in my life all summer long! You will love how easy they are to make and the flavor. They are sweet (but not too sweet) and they will remind you of sipping tropical drinks poolside at the beach. Pair these with Blue Hawaiian Jello Shots and Pina Colada Dip at your next gathering with friends!

What do I need:

15 shot glasses 2oz.

Injector

2 cup measuring cup

Mixing bowls

Spatulas

Ingredients:

1 Box Island Pineapple Jello

1 Cup Pina Colada Mix

½ Cup Boiling Water

½ Cup Rum

Whipped Cream (optional)

Toasted Coconut (optional)

Maraschino Cherries (optional)

Pineapple Chunks (optional)

How to Make Pina Colada Jello Shots

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the boiling water and pineapple jello. Stir until fully dissolved.
  • Add the rum and pina colada mix. Stir well.
  • Using an injector or pourable container, fill each of the shot glasses until they’re almost complete, just leaving a touch of space at the top.
  • Place in the fridge for 2 hours or until set.
  • Add a dollop of whipped cream, a cherry to the middle, a pineapple chunk to the side, and a sprinkle of toasted coconut on the top, if desired, and enjoy!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • I used an open star tip and a frosting bag to make the dollops of whipped cream. They turn out so pretty that way. 
  • I use an injector to fill the glasses because I suck at pouring and end up dumping some of it, without fail. The injector makes it quicker, easier, and less messy, in my opinion, and experience. 
  • Do not garnish your jello shots until you’re ready to serve them.
  • If you want the coconut flavor to be more robust, add in a teaspoon of coconut extract to the mix before filling the glasses and chilling. 
  • These shots should last up to a week, covered, in the fridge. Do not freeze them. It ruins them. 
  • Do not go over the amount of alcohol mentioned. This will cause your shots to not set and be liquid. If you’re ok with this, add whatever alcohol you like. However, if you do want them to set like normal jello, don’t add more than ½ cup rum.
