Pina Colada Jello -With Rum or No Alcohol Option

This Pina Colada Jello would be a fantastic dessert for Cinco de Mayo ~or~ any warm day this summer! It's a fun snack that only calls for a few ingredients. Having an adult gathering? Serve it with rum mixed in, or leave it out for a family friendly no-alcohol option. Another great thing, you can even find pineapple Jello in the Walmart brand for about 36¢ a pack... Yep, this is a refreshing seasonal treat that tastes great and is budget friendly to make:@) 
I spooned mine into margarita glasses for Cinco de Mayo:@)
Smaller portions firm up quicker than the larger molds too.
