Hurricane Jell-o Shots
Be the hit of the party with these beautiful jell-o shots!
3 oranges, halved
1/2 cup white rum
1/2 cup dark rum
1/2 cup passion fruit juice (or tropical fruit blend)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons simple syrup (1 part sugar to 1 part water, boiled until the sugar dissolves)
2 tablespoons grenadine
2 envelopes gelatin (I like Knox Unflavoured Gelatin Powder)
Run a paring knife around the inside edge of each orange peel to release the flesh. Using your hands, carefully remove the flesh from the oranges to make 6 shells. Squeeze enough of the flesh to make 1/4 cup of juice.
Combine the white and dark rums in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside.
Combine the orange juice, passion fruit juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and grenadine in a bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the juice mixture and let sit for 1 minute. Pour the hot rum over the juices and whisk until the gelatin completely dissolves, about 5 minutes.
Divide the hot juice mixture among the orange shells and chill in the refrigerator until the gelatin sets, about 2 hours.
When ready to serve, remove the oranges from the refrigerator and cut each half into 4 wedges using a sharp knife. If you don't serve immediately, store them in the fridge.
