Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooter Results
Here are the Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters I prepared for a family party. They were quite a hit. So much that I had to ghetto-whip up some more after the first 16 ran out! I have some suggestions if you want to try making these.
To carve out the center I used a sharp pairing knife, but you may also want to try a melon baller or a strawberry stem remover. I was too aggressive with carving out the hull and ended up creating a tiny hole in each of the strawberries. This ended up leaking out all the Jell-O even though the strawberries were cut flat at the bottom. The best thing to do is to go easy on the carving, but if you want max filling action you have to dig a little deeper. To remedy this leakage, I created a thin layer of Jell-O in a small baking pan with the strawberries on top and let it set in the fridge for 10 minutes or so. This will seal the leakage and allow you to fill up the strawberries, but it will also create a mess at the base of the strawberry.
One small box of Jell-O is enough for roughly 30 strawberries depending on how much you mess up. I did not know this so I have a serving of alcoholic Jell-O sitting in my fridge and a ton of leftover strawberries. I used a sugar-free gelatin by Royal and they still tasted great. If you want to rim the strawberry with salt (and you should), use a courser salt and it will come out looking better. I definitely recommend prepping these the night before your party.
Here’s that recipe again if you would like to try this out yourself.
