Pour the liquid into the 5.5 oz. cups or use the traditional 2.2 oz. cups. Place in the fridge overnight for the best results.

Non Alcoholic Version

If you would like to make these jello cups non alcoholic simply leave out the rum and replace with cold water. Let set overnight. They are just as good without the alcohol.

How Much Rum Should I Add

Adding 1/2 cup of coconut rum in place of the water is perfect when it comes to flavor. If you want the cups a bit stronger than you can replace with one cup coconut rum and one cup water. I use the 1/2 cup method.
