Tequila & strawberry jello! 🍓
Margaritas are great, jello is fantastic. Let’s combine them and put a new twist on a popular fruity drink.
The Strawberry Margarita Jello Shot recipe is created using the basic concept of how I make all my jello shots – replacing the cold water called for in the instructions on the jello box with alcohol and/or other liquid.
WHAT YOU NEED
• 2 1/4 cups Water
• 1 big box Strawberry Jello
• 1/3 cup Strawberry Syrup
• 1 cup Silver Tequila
• 1/8 cup Cointreau (could also use triple sec)
• 10 4oz cups
• optional: salt & lime for garnish
WHAT TO DO
 boil WATER
Pour water into saucepan. Place on stove over high heat. Bring to boil.
 add JELLO
Once the water is boiling, turn off the heat and pour in contents from the jello packet.
 STIR until dissolved
Using a fork or whisk, stir jello until it is dissolved – usually about a minute.
 add STRAWBERRY SYRUP
Let cool just slightly, then pour syrup into jello mixture.
 add TEQUILA
Next, add silver Tequila to jello.
 add COINTREAU
Add orange liqueur to jello mix. Stir.
 POUR into cups
Pour mixture into cups. I used 10 4oz cups.
 REFRIGERATE until firm and ready to serve
Place jello shots in the fridge until they are firm and you are ready to serve.
 add GARNISH
If you really want to go for the margarita feel, salt the rim of the cup and slide on a lime wedge.
You can purchase the cups I most often use from Amazon. They come in a huge pack – but, I don’t mind. It means I have enough to make lots and lots of jello shots.
