I love to bake. But since there's already about 5 gazillion recipes out there, I can't be bothered to come up with my own recipes. This is where I'll document my successes and failures with "swiping" recipes from other places. Of course, I'm an honorable swiper, and I'll give credit where credit is due.
Ok......last 4th of July post, I promise!! I decided these Strawberry Margarita Jello Shots from Bakers Royale would be a fun, adult-only little treat on a hot day. I had been seeing a picture of these floating around on Pinterest, and they just looked so pretty and so cute....they immediately went into my Have to Try file :)
Strawberry Jello spiked with Tequila and Cointreau in a beautiful strawberry rimmed with salt and garnished with lime......such a pretty little treat! I don't do to much with Jello so I'm glad that I read this recipe through a few days before I was going to make it, because it does need to sit in the fridge overnight so that the Jello can set up. The jello was fantastic tasting......absolutely tasted like a strawberry margarita jello shot......I could have totally seen this in my college days in little paper cups (just the jello part....no one would have bothered with the cute strawberry part). There was extra jello (I guess I didn't prep enough strawberries), so I just poured the extra into a bowl to be scooped out later.
My one complaint about these guys would be the salt on the top of the strawberries. I didn't think about it while I was making them, but usually when you get a flavored margarita the rim of the glass would be coated in sugar, not salt, right? I think that sugar would have gone better with these than salt.....it just didn't quite work for me.
