Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance can I make these?
You can make these 2-3 days in advance and keep them covered in the fridge.

Can I use diet Mountain Dew?
Yes! You can certainly use diet Mountain Dew or Diet Mountain Dew Baja Blast instead of regular.

What toppings can I use for these jello shots?
If you want you can simply serve them plain or use a light layer of Cool-Whip or whipped cream ion top with a cherry. Just be sure to add the toppings on right before serving or the whipped cream will melt.

What other liquor can I use?
You can use white rum, coconut rum, and malibu rum. I do prefer the blue curacao because it helps give it that blue color of baja blast.
