Escape the Polar Vortex with these Blue Hawaii Jello Shots

Invented in 1957, and named after a song first recorded by Bing Crosby and later made famous by Elvis Presley, the Blue Hawaii classic cocktail is already pretty delightful on its own. Turning it into Jello shots amps the fun factor even higher, and it’s not hard to do.
