Strawberry Lemonade Margarita Jello Shooters

Strawberry Lemonade Jello Shooters

When it's 63 degrees on February 1st... you never know what you might make to eat or snack on!
These are jello shooters with a little more fun and creativity rather than the old boring shot glass.
Simply get some strawberries- the larger the better for these.
There are only a few simple steps to make these strawberry lemonade jello shooters.

All you have to do is take a paring knife and cut the bottom of the strawberry so it can lay flat.
Then take a small spoon or better yet- take the paring knife and cut a little circle on the top of the
strawberry and spoon out the center of the berry. Once the center of the berries are hollowed out-
you can lay the strawberries in a mini muffin tin if you have one- otherwise because the bottoms are flat
they can just lay on a small plate (depending on how many you are making)

Then take your lemon or strawberry jello mix  (1 cup HOT water with the jello mix,
followed by 1 cup cold water) and spoon or ladle in the jello.

Once it's been in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours - you can see that the jello
is not liquid anymore. You can  brush or turn over and dip the top and edge with a little
lime juice to add the salt for the margarita effect and by adding tequila or vodka to the jello!

A little teeny weeny wedge of lime is also a cute and tasty garnish.
You can also just cut the rind part off and eat the lime in one shot!
Cheers Apr-uary!  (February weather being 63 degrees = Apr-uary)
