  1. Place red Jello in a jug and add 1 cup of boiled water. Stir until crystals are dissolved. Add 3/4 cup cold water. Divide between cups (I used 8 small glasses of varying sizes and shapes).
  2. Refrigerate for 1 hour until mostly set.
  3. Sprinkle unflavoured gelatine over 1/4 cup of cold water, let stand for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup boiled water and stir until granules are dissolved. Add sweetened condensed milk and stir until smooth, then divide between glasses. Refrigerate 1 hour or until almost set.

  4. Make blue Jello following steps #1. Divide between glasses then refrigerate until fully set.
  5. Garnish with whipped cream and silver balls if desired, and serve!
  6. VODKA VERSION: Reduce water by 1/2 cup for the red and blue jello, and replace with vodka.
