Can not wait to get blasted drunk off these at my birthday
Gonna give this one five stars. I followed the suggesting in the first comment to make this taste "more like a real margarita" and I'm disappointed. I think I should have stuck to the original recipe! I think cutting the tequila to what the original recipe called for would have made them so much better!
I've perfected this recipe, try this for shots that tastes more like a real margarita and has a higher alcohol content:
- Lime Jello (6oz box)
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 1/2 cups tequila (cold)
- 1/4 cup triple sec (cold)
- 1/4 cup margarita mix (cold)
- 1/8 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
My best friend and I also do jello shots on demand. You tell us what you drink, we turn it into a jello shot. After our combined number of years bartending, we haven't been unable to create one on demand yet. This is the same basic recipe we use for our margarita shots. If you don't have triple sec on hand, a splash of orange juice will do the trick. Also, try these with strawberry jello for a strawberry margarita... we like to rim the edge in sugar, just for looks. Definitely open your imagination up and play with this! Once you know the basic measurements you really can run your own jello drink factory!
Simply amazing....I halved the recipe b/c they were just for a few of us, and I wanted to have a few other flavors. I could have made them ALL from this recipe and would have been happy!!!
When my roommates and I were making these they smelled very strong so we were a little worried, but when we tried them they were amazing!!!
I made thsse for tailgating before a Jimmy Buffet concert and they were a HUGE hit. I bought disposable plastic shot glasses available at the liquor store I went to and made these the night before the show. I then popped them into extra large ziploc bags in a singler layer and stacked them atop each other in a cooler and they arrived perfectly. Thanks for the recipe, I'll be making them again for the next Buffet bash!
This recipe was fantastic. I usually hate jello shots b/c they taste like bad cough medicine but this was perfection. You could taste the alcohol but the lime jello really cut the severity of it. Everyone at the party raved about them and I became the most loved guest. THANK YOU!
