Margarita Jello Shots

Aren’t these the CUTEST Jello shots ever?

I can’t take full credit for the in-a-lime-half idea because I saw them here, but regardless, they are awesome.

I made them for a day trip to Tomales Bay with some friends and of course everyone loved them. They are really fresh with tons of lime juice with just enough flavor from the tequila too. I shouldn’t have to really sell you on them… just do it.

labor of love, folks – it took me about an hour for all 32 halves

Margarita Jello, recipe inspiration here:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 packets powdered gelatin
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 1 cup tequila

Heat water and sugar until simmering and sugar is dissolved. Sprinkle over gelatin, whisking constantly. Continue to whisk until dissolved, about 1 min. Add lime juice and tequila.

Pour into lime halves or other container(s). Makes about 32 lime halves + maybe a little extra.

Let set in the fridge at least 3 hours. If using limes halves, cut them in half again after they’ve set. Now it’s time to have a party!

Note: 32 limes will yield more juice than you need, so make limeade!

Limeade for 1:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup (or more to taste)

Thoroughly mix or shake the ingredients and serve over ice – yum!
