Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters

Oh yes, you read the title for this one correctly. Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters! As if jell-o shooters and strawberries couldn’t get any better on their own, we decided to combine them. Say goodbye to boring regular margaritas in glasses! These sweet little strawberries are the perfect “drinks” that will also satisfy your sweet tooth.

Ingredients:
1 box Strawberry Jell-O
8 ounces tequila, preferably reposado or blanco
6 ounce Cointreau
Salt for garnish
Strawberries

Directions:

1. Cut the bottoms of the strawberry flat to get them to stand upright. When 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.

2. 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 1/4 cup of cold water and set aside.

3. Combine tequila and Cointreau, in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add liqueur mixture to cold water and stir to combine. Then add cold liqueur mixture to hot jell-o mixture and stir to combine.

4. Pour 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.
