DIRECTIONS

  • We'll start with the blue. Boil a teakettle full of water, and when it is boiling, pour two cups of the water into a clear pitcher or heatproof bowl. Add the blue gelatin powder. Stir until dissolved. Add 1.5 cups cold water (or equivalent amount of ice if you want it to solidify faster). Add 1/2 cup vodka (or more, to taste). Pour into individual dixie cups. Drop one blueberry into each cup, it will float on top.
  • Next, the red. Do the same as you did in step one, but add 1/2 cup light rum to taste instead of vodka. Pour into dixie cups and drop a slice of strawberry or a raspberry into each cup.
  • Next, the white. Start heating fruit juices to a simmer in a saucepan. Pour the room temperature rum into a large bowl, and sprinkle gelatin over the rum, avoiding clumps. Let it sit a minute, then add hot fruit juice while stirring with a fork (a beater makes it too fuffy). Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Pour into individual dixie cups.
  • Set dixie cups of all colors on cookie sheets to cool in the fridge. You can stack full cookie sheets on top of one another. Chill until set.
