Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots

Believe me when I say, these are a fun party hit! Enjoy!

Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots
Recipe via Bakers Royale

1 box Strawberry Jell-O
1 cup tequila,
1 cup water
Sugar and sliced lime for garnish

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. *REALLY  be careful about cutting off the bottom of the strawberry. Just the littlest hole (even a teeny tiny one) will make your jello leak out of the berry. Use a paring knife or small spoon to hollow out the berries. Don't get to into emptying the strawberry, just do your best.  *Look for the biggest strawberries you can, they hold the most jello.
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 cup of  tequila and set aside.
Add cold tequila to hot Jell-o mixture and stir to combine.
Pour mix into strawberries and chill overnight. Pour some sugar on a plate and rim your strawberries with it. You don't need to wet the berry it will stick on its own. Garnish with cut lime triangles to finish. Keep really cold until serving.

We will have to give this a try! I have a box of Margarita and Daiquiri Jello...

Thanks for the great recipe, this looked so good, I just had to try them. I made them last night and they were delicious! I did find it hard to hollow out the strawberries without getting any holes in them though. About half of them ended up leaking out. No matter, I just scraped the jello from the bottom of the pan and put it back in the strawberries and sprinkled the sugar on top. I had way more jello than strawberries so poured the rest into ice cube trays to make single serving jello shots.
