Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Variation
As an option when serving adults, prepare with vodka. Reduce the boiling water to 1 cup and dissolve each of the berry and cherry gelatin mixes in 1/2 cup boiling water. Stir 1/4 cup vodka into each flavor of gelatin, then continue as directed. Please use alcohol responsibly.
Tip 2
Substitute
Substitute blueberries and/or small strawberries for the cherries.
Tip 3
Variation
As an option when serving adults, prepare using spiked cherries. Place cherries in glass jar. Add 1/2 cup vodka; cover with tight-fitting lid. Refrigerate at least 2 hours; drain. Pat cherries dry, then use as directed. Please use alcohol responsibly.
