Margarita " Jigglers "

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Linda N

This is a grown up jiggler. It has become a Christmas tradition in my family. (Sigh!) =) These are firmer than the Jello shots you may have tried before.

I used a special edition margarita-flavored lime gelatin, and it made for a very tasty little shot treat. But that is a lot of tequila. Had I known the tequila taste would have been so prominent, I would have used a premier tequila. Nonetheless, this is great for parties and would be the perfect touch for Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Made for 2009 Spring Pick-A-Chef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix Jello and gelatin in boiling water and stir until dissolved.
  2. Add lemon juice and tequila, stirring well.
  3. Pour into large, shallow foil pan and refrigerate until firm.
  4. Using a knife, score horizontally and vertically to make jiggler blocks. I've tried small cookie cutters, but there is too much wastage. Enjoy.
