Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots

Introduction: Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots

What you will need to make

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup tequila chilled (which ever kind you like)
  • ½ cup triple sec chilled
  • 1 box strawberry Jell-O mix
  • Strawberries
  • 1 lime
  • Small bowl with sugar in it
  • Liquid measuring cup
  • Small sauce pan
  • Cookie sheet
  • Small kitchen knife
  • Cutting board
  • Plastic disposable shot glasses or condiment containers

Step 1: Prep the Strawberries

  • Working on your cutting board cut a small part of the bottom of the strawberry off. Make sure there are no holes in the bottom.
  • Cut off a small part of the top off the strawberry.
  • Very carefully scoop out the inside of the strawberry without making a hole in the bottom. (a hole in the bottom will cause the Jell-O to leak out.)
  • Place the prepped strawberries in the plastic containers to keep them from falling over. Then place them on your cookie sheet.

Step 2: Prep the Jell-O Mixture

  • Bring the cup of water to a boil and remove from the heat.
  • Stir in the Jell-O mix until completely dissolved.
  • Pour in the chilled cup of tequila and ½ cup triple sec into the Jell-O mix. Stir until well mixed.
  • Pour your mixture into your liquid cup measure.

Step 3: Slowly Pour Your Mixture Into the Prepped Strawberries.

  • Fill up the strawberries as much as possible because Jell-O shrinks a bit when it becomes firm. Be ready this can be a messy step.

Step 4: Refrigerate for at Least Four Hours or Until Jell-O Has Become Firm.

Step 5: Cut the Lime Into Slices, Then Cut Each Slice Into Small Triangles.

  • Run the cut lime around the edge of the top of the strawberries. This done so the sugar will stick to the top of the strawberries.
  • Keep the small triangles of lime. They are also decorations for your strawberries.

Step 6: Gently Dip the Top of Each of Strawberry Into the Sugar and Place Back on Your Cookie Sheet

  • Place one mini wedge lime onto each strawberry
  • Now you are finished.
