Surprise your guests at your next get together with a special treat. Make a batch of Strawberry Margarita Jell-O shots for a good time. It can be a great dessert for kids too, if you take out the alcohol of course. It’s such an easy recipe, you’ll have it mastered in no time!
What You’ll Need
Create this simple party favor with some of the simplest ingredients! All can be found in your local super market at an affordable price. The ingredients consist of: 24-30 large strawberries, 1 box of Strawberry Jell-O, 1 cup of Tequila, ¾ cups of Cointreau, sugar, 1-2 limes, optional shot glasses, and a melon-baller. Gather all your supplies and ingredients in one area, and you’ll be ready to go!
Preparation and Steps
The fun thing about this recipe is that your “shot glass” is actually going to be an actual strawberry! Prepare your berry cups by balancing the strawberry on its side while cutting the top and bottom off. Maker sure you do this evenly so your cup isn’t standing up slanted. Use your melon-baller to scoop some of the insides out creating a cup-like holder for your Jell-O, but don’t scoop out too much. Place all your berries on a baking sheet and dry with a napkin if needed. Regular plastic shot glasses can be used if preferred, too.
You will then create your Jell-O; follow the instructions on the Jell-O box carefully. Mix ¾ cups of boiling water with the powder and mix until it completely dissolves. This is when you can add Tequila or any kind of liquor of your choice into the Jell-O mixture (optional).
Once your Jell-O is heated and ready, place into a spout, or an easy-filling container. Fill your strawberry cups as much as possible, because Jell-O is known to shrink when it solidifies.
You will then place your tray into the refrigerator and wait a couple hours until it is firm!
Decorate Your Shots!
Now that your Strawberry Jell-O shots are done, you need to jazz them up! Of course this step is optional, but it may be the most fun! For some more flavor, zest lime into a plate of sugar and wet the tip of your strawberries before dipping them in! The opportunities are endless when it comes to decorating your shots. Get creative and try different things; your guests will really appreciate this cute, YUMMY party favor!
