Step 2: Boil Water and Jell-O

Add the color Jell-O (3 ounces) you want to use for the first layer in a large measuring cup (for ease of poring) or bowl. Stir in 1 cup of boiling water until dissolved.

Tip

  • Don't like vodka? Use rum or tequila! Works just as well.

Step 5: Make the White Layer (Optional)

If making a white layer (Jell-O doesn't offer a white flavor), try this: add the unflavored gelatin in a large measuring cup (for ease of poring) or bowl. Stir in 1 cup of boiling water until dissolved.

Step 6: Add the Pina Colada Mix

Add the chilled pina colada mix, stir until well combined.

Step 7: Pour Over the First Layer

Pour about 1/2 inch over the chilled first layer, chill until set. Unflavored gelatin will set a bit faster than typical Jell-O and should be ready in about 30 minutes. Do not proceed until it has set.

Step 8: Mix the Third Color

Add the remaining color Jell-O (3 ounces) to a large measuring cup (for ease of poring) or bowl. Stir in 1 cup of boiling water until dissolved.
