How to Make Strawberry Margarite Jello Shots

Step-by-Step

  • 1Strawberry Prep:
    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.
    Use a huller or apple corer to empty out the strawberry.
    Once the strawberries have been emptied, use a towel to pat the outside of the strawberries dry.
    Check each strawberry and make sure there is not a hole in the bottom before you start filling.
  • 2Margarine Mix:Boil one cup of hot water in a saucepan, then add in Jell-o powder and whisk until powder is completely dissolved, about 2 minute
  • 3Set aside. Measure out 1/4 cup of cold water and set aside.
  • 4Combine tequila and Cointreau, in cocktail shaker filled with ice
  • 5Add liquour mixture to cold water and stir to combine. Then add cold liquour mixture to hot Jell-o mixture and stir to combine.
  • 6Pour 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. Garnish with cut lime triangles to finish.
