      Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters September 23rd, 2010 § 30 Margarita Jell-O Shooters ~ A fun farewell to summer and a festive edition to your Sunday football tailgate party or gatherings. For another Jello shooter variation like this one, check out my Lemon Drop Jello Shooters cut into the shape of lemon wedges and my Rocky Candy Shooters shaped just like the rock candy you loved as a kid. Strawberry Margarita Jello Shooters Strawberry Margarita Jello Shooters As many of you know, my Lemon Drop Jell-O Shooters are my issued dish from my girlfriend who holds the annual tailgate kickoff amongst our friends. This year with Matt being in the hospital, I sent them forward to the gathering in our absence. Now that we can finally make the next one in two weeks, she has again requested Jell-O shooters. But who wants to repeat a dish back-to-back, that’s like wearing the same dress to two functions that have the essentially the same invitees. That being the case, I opted to try what you see here. Somewhere there is someone screaming at my blasphemous mash-up of a cocktail with Jell-o. And my response . . . stop being so uptight. Food is fun and I love messing around with it. Besides how cute and fun are these? A few notes: I will be posting the how-to picture over the weekend. Sorry, I have to process them still. Use the real Jell-o mix and not a store brand, as the store brands tend not to set up as firmly. Choose the freshest strawberries you can find. You can use a strawberry huller or an apple corer along with a melon baller to empty out the strawberry. I used the latter method because it allowed me to dig a deeper well. These are best made the night before and served the next day. Fill your strawberries as high as possible, as the Jell-O will sink a bit in the middle. Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters Yields 24-30 Strawberry Margarite Jello Shooters Strawberry Margarita Jello Shooters 21 Strawberry Margarita Jell O Shooters Strawberry 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. Margarita Mix 1 box Strawberry Jell-O 8 ounces tequila, preferably reposado or blanco 6 ounce Cointreau Salt for garnish Instructions 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. Combine tequila and Cointreau, in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add liquour mixture to cold water and stir to combine. Then add cold liquour mixture to hot Jell-o mixture and stir to combine. 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.
