Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots

If there’s any time during the year for a party, New Year’s Eve is the time. Some people like punch bowl mixes, dressed up sangrias, or a slightly fancier Jell-O shot. This recipe is of the last variety. I’m not a particularly big fan of shots of any kind, but I won’t get in the way of anyone else’s fun!

Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots

Course Dessert, Snack
Prep Time 5 hours 20 minutes
Total Time 5 hours 20 minutes
Servings 24 shots


  • 3/4 cup water boiling
  • 1 package strawberry Jell-O mix
  • 24-30 strawberries
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 3/4 cup cointreau
  • granulated sugar
  • 1 lime


  1. Cut the tops off your strawberries, making sure to cut straight across. Also, cut off a little of the end to help it stand up. Dry them slightly with a paper towel to help the Jell-O stick. Place on top of a baking sheet to make carrying easier.

  2. Add the boiling water to the Jell-o mix and stir for about 2 minutes to thoroughly dissolve.

  3. Mix together the tequila and cointreau, then pour into the Jell-o mix before it starts to harden.

  4. Pour the Jell-O shot mix into the strawberries, then move them to the refrigerator. Leave there to chill for at least 4 hours or until the Jell-O has solidified.

  5. Grate the lime and mix the peel with sugar. Roll the edges of the wide part of the strawberries in the sugar mixture.

  6. Enjoy!
