It's refreshing and great for parties.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Margarita Jell-O is not an easy find, so we improvised by using two boxes of lime Jell-o and 1 cup of boiling margarita mix in place of 1/2 the boiling water called for in the recipe. We loved the way it turned out - the perfect light bite for your next adult party. Be sure to garnish with salt... It really makes the dish! The Test Kitchen

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
