Kraft Kitchens Tips

Adults Only Alcoholic Variation
Prepare as directed, reducing the boiling water to 1 cup and dissolving 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.
Substitute blueberries and/or small strawberries for the cherries.
Spiked Cherries: Adults Only
Place cherries in a glass jar. Add 1/2 cup vodka; cover with a tight-fitting lid. Refrigerate at least 2 hours; drain. Pat dry, then use as directed.
