Servings: 24 servings
- 2 pints fresh strawberries medium-large size
- 3 ounces strawberry jello powder 1 small box
- 1 cup boiling water
- 4 ounces tequila
- 2 ounces margarita mix
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/4 cup sugar for the rim
- 1 lime
Rinse strawberries. Cut off bottom portions (enough to stand up, but not enough to make a hole). Cut off top ¼-inch and scoop out insides, making sure not to hit bottom.
In a small bowl, add boiling water and jello powder, stirring gently for 2 min to dissolve completely.
In a cocktail shaker, add ice cubes along with tequila, margarita mix and ¼ cup cold water. Shake for 5 seconds.
Strain cocktail into jello mixture and stir briefly.
Using a squeeze bottle or small measuring cup with spout, dribble liquid into strawberries and fill to top. Refrigerate at least one hour.
To serve, put sugar on a small plate and rim strawberries. Cut a lime into quarter-wedges and place on each strawberry. Serve & enjoy!
- You can substitute vodka for tequila to make vodka shots, or use a mix of white rum and triple sec for daiquiri shots.
