Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A worthy farewell to summer and a necessary addition to keep the ladies up to no good throughout football season.

Tips and Tricks:

        • Use the real thang baby;
        •  the store brands tend not to set up as firmly.
        • Choose the freshest strawberries you can find.
        • To allow the Jell-O plenty of time to set, make these the night before and serve the next day.
        • Fill your strawberries as high as possible, to allow the Jell-O to settle as it sets.

Strawberry Prep:

        1. Cut the bottoms of the strawberry flat to get them to stand upright. When you do so, make sure that you do not cut off so much that there is a hole at the bottom.
        2. Use an apple corer or melon baller to empty out the strawberry.
        3. Once the strawberries have been emptied, use a towel to pat the outside of the strawberries dry.
        4. Check each strawberry and make sure there is not a hole in the bottom before you start filling.

Margarita Mix

        • 1 box Strawberry Jell-O (Name-Brand)
        • 8 ounces tequila [add more to taste ;-) ]
        • 6 ounce Cointreau
        • Salt for garnish

Instructions

        1. Boil one cup of hot water in a saucepan,  then add in Jell-O powder and whisk until powder is completely dissolved, about 2  minutes. Set aside.  Measure out 1/4 cup of cold water and set aside.
        2. Combine tequila and Cointreau, in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add liquour mixture to cold water and stir to combine. Then add cold liquour mixture to hot Jell-o mixture and stir to combine.
        3. Pour a separate shot of tequila for yourself and throw it back.
        4. Pour final Jell-o mix into strawberries and chill overnight. Dip  your finger in water or use a moistened brush to wet the edge of the strawberries, dip and rotate the strawberries in salt to rim.
        5. Garnish with cut lime triangles to finish.
