Cook’s Notes: This recipe can be made “Kid Friendly” by omitting the rum and adding another 1/2 cup (nonalcoholic) Fuzzy Navel mix instead, while boiling the Jell-O mixture. (If you can’t find “Fuzzy Navel” mix, you can use any peach flavored Daiquiri, Margarita mixes or peach liqueur to add more flavor for the adults ).
