When you’re having a party, shots always end up happening at some point. So why not amp things up this Fourth of July with Strawberry Margarita Jello Shots! They add some flair to basic tequila shots and they are strawberry flavored. Also, instead of salt, you use sugar on the rim.
These Jello shots are a huge hit! I brought these to a Halloween party last year and everyone was asking me to send them the recipe. Plus, the best part about these Jello shots is that you only need 4 ingredients and there is very little prep involved.
If you are interested in using the EZ-Squeeze shot glasses pictured, I picked them up at Party City for $8. They help the Jello come out so much easier than the normal plastic shot glasses. Definitely worth the money and it comes with 50 shot glasses.
