Margarita " Jigglers "

Total Time
Prep 0 mins

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.


  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.

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.

Wonderful! Everyone loved these, I should have made a double batch! Used strawberry jello instead of lime.

I made these for our New Years Eve Celebration. It was really really good. This is a keeper. I didn't have lime jello so I used strawberry. I can't wait to try it with the lime jello. Thanks for submiting a great recipe. Happy New Year!
