I felt the urge to post this delicious dessert.
It can be made more sophisticated by substituting a fruity Champaign for the Sprite and can easily be turned into a sweet for diabetics by using sugar-free Jell-O, soda and whipped topping.
Of course, the daring can experiment with other fruits and geletin flavors.
Get over any lingering grade school aversion you might have toward America's favorite geletin dessert and try this easy and delicious summer treat.

Orange Tangerine Parfait

1 box Orange Jell-O
3 Tangerines, sectioned and membranes peeled
1 Tsp Tangerine zest
1 cup hot Water
1 cup Sprite or other lemon cola
1 cup sweetened Whipping Cream

Dissolve Jell-O in the hot water.
Place Jell-O mixture in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Add the cup of Sprite blending into semi-set Jell-O mixture.
Return to fridge for 1 hour.
Add Tangerine sections and zest to firming mixture and return to fridge.
This mixture when set will have the consistency of tapioca.

In parfait glasses or goblets assemble Jell-O mixture in alternate layers with sweetened Whipping Cream with Jell-O as the first layer and Whipped Cream as the top layer.
