Blue Hawaii Jello Shot

Inspired by the underrated, proto-tiki cocktail, this variation on the Blue Hawaii gets a jiggly makeover. Made with blue curaçao, white rum, pineapple juice and Berry Blue Jell-O, the vibrantly-hued Jello Shot is as boozy as it is tropical. Easy to concoct—and even easier to enjoy—these wiggly tiki shooters are the perfect addition to your next luau-themed blowout bash. Just don’t take too many or you won’t be able to limbo.
