“Sippin’ on coke and rum…”

“Sippin’ on Coke and Rum, I’m like so what I’m Drunk; it’s the freakin’ weekend, baby I’m about to have me some fun” ~ R. Kelly, Ignition (Remix)


An easy and refreshing cocktail, a rum and coke is very much a go to drink for many. It requires little to no work, and can be made using almost any flavor of rum; personally I go for Malibu. This weekend I decided to make a rum and coke with a twist…that twist: turning it into a Jell-O shot.

Rum & Coke Jell-O Shots

1 package black cherry jello

1 cup coke (boiled)

1 cup rum

This is a little different because instead of using a cup of boiled water, you are actually going to boil the soda and add that to the jello. Stir until dissolved and let sit a minute before adding the rum. Mix together, pour into your shot glass and put in the fridge to solidify.

I wasn’t too sure about the black cherry when I initially started, but it actually enhances the taste of the coke, without making it have a strong cherry flavor. However, if you prefer the taste of cherry coke, you could use that instead of regular coke to enhance the cherry flavor. I recently had a drink of cherry coke and cherry rum….never would have thought of it, but it is delicious. So, if you want a rum and coke that is a little sweeter and has a stronger cherry flavor, try this shot with substituting the coke with cherry coke and use cherry rum.

I think one of the best things about this shot is that the possibilities seem endless. You can use plain rum, coconut (which is what I did for these), cherry rum, or even banana….

Mix it up and enjoy!
