Black Cherry Spiced Rum and Coke Jell-O Shot: Classic rum and Coke taken up a notch. Black cherry Jell-O, Spiced Rum, and Coke make up these tasty and potent Jell-O shots.
I was never a big rum fan.
Oh sure, it is always fun in a Pina Colada or Daiquiri, but for the most part I stay clear of it.
So I avoided spiced rum for quite some time.
Then one day while at a bar the when the bartender asked me what I wanted I said “surprise me”.
Surprised I was to see I got Spiced Rum, cherry juice, and Coke.
Hmmm, not very exciting I thought.
Except it was really good.
So when it came time to invent Jell-O shot flavors for the hockey tournament I decided to turn that drink into Jell-O shot form.
This one went over really well. I have to make them every year.
I use Black Cherry Jell-O which I can find at the store and online.
However, if you cannot find black cherry you could use regular cherry Jell-O if need be.
You don’t need to add the gummy cola garnish but they are fun so why not?
