ULTRA Strawberry Margarita Jello Shots

It’s officially summer in South Africa and one just can’t help but drool over these ULTRA Strawberry Margarita Jello Shots!

The sugar and lime garnish just screams lets-all-lounge-under-the-sun in intoxicated sugary bliss.

Here’s how to make them:

Strawberry Prep (About two plastic containers of strawberries should do it.)

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. *REALLY be careful about cutting off the bottom of the strawberry. Just the littlest hole (even a teeny tiny one) will make your jello leak out of the berry.

Use a paring knife or small spoon to hollow out the berries. Don’t get too into emptying the strawberry, just do your best. *Look for the biggest strawberries you can, they hold the most jello.

Jello Mix

  • 1 regular (small) box Strawberry Jell-O
  • 1 cup tequila,
  • 1 cup water
  • Sugar and sliced lime for garnish

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 cup of tequila and set aside.

Add cold tequila to hot Jell-o mixture and stir to combine.

Pour mix into strawberries and chill overnight. Pour some sugar on a plate and rim your strawberries with it. You don’t need to wet the berry it will stick on its own. Garnish with cut lime triangles to finish. Keep really cold until serving.

Ultra Liquors stocks a big selection of Tequila so pop around and make some of these ULTRA Strawberry Margarita Jello Shots for the weekend.
