Strawberry Margarita Jell-o Shots!

  Strawberry Margarita Jell-o Shots!

 What you need:

  • 2 lbs. of Strawberries
  • 6 oz. of Margarita Mix
  • 1 Cup of Tequila
  • 3 oz. Strawberry Flavored Jell-O
  • Sugar and/or Limes (for garnish) 

Step 1:

After washing the strawberries  cut off the tip so that they will stand upright on a flat surface.  Cut the top off the strawberries and using a small melon baller you want to scoop out the insides.  






You want to be careful to leave a even shell without puncturing it.

Step 2:

In a sauce pan bring 6 ounces of margarita mix to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in  the jell-o mix.  Once dissolved stir in the tequila.

 Step 3:
Place the hollow strawberries on a plate and fill to rim with jell-o.  The strawberries need to go in the fridge for at least four hours.
TIP: Keep any remaining jell-o at room temp, You may need it to refill some strawberries that leak. Some strawberries may leak.  Allow the initial jell-o to set before you try to refill the strawberries with more jell-o.  You can also salvage spilled jell-o on the plate with a spoon.

Step 4:

You can serve the strawberries as is or if you want to garnish them you can rub the rim of the strawberries with a lime wedge and then rotate them in sugar. You can also add a garnish of  lime. TIP: You want to serve the strawberries cold.
