Margarita Jello Shot


First, a BIG thank you for everybody that linked up yesterday!  You are awesome.  And I loved reading everybody’s posts.  Now, on to the fun!

I wish I would have taken pictures while we prepped these limes, but I didn’t even think of it (I know, right!).  Anyway, the original recipe is from here!

Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 4 hrs 45 min
Servings: 40 servings



  • 10 whole limes
  • 1 cup limeade (we used the frozen minute maid limeade)
  • 2 envelopes plain gelatin
  • 3/4 cup tequila
  • 2 tablespoons triple sec
  • 1 tablespoon sweetened lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt



  1. Cut the limes in half lengthwise. Scoop out the insides. (Note- this took forever!  I suggest using a pairing knife and cutting along the edge.  While holding the lime in the palm of your hand, use tablespoon to scoop out the insides.  I spun the lime in my hand while going around-and-around with the spoon.  Hope this makes some sense.
  2. Add the limeade to a saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin over the juice. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
  3. Heat the limeade over low heat, stirring, until the gelatin has dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the tequila, triple sec, and sweetened lime juice. Pour into the lime halves.
  5. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
  6. Cut the limes into half, sprinkle with salt, and serve.

These were seriously a huge hit of the party!  Honestly, they were a little sour for Derek and my taste.  However, everybody loved them so I would say make them per the recipe.  I have a couple of other recipes similar to this one with different flavors that I cannot wait to try!
