How To Make Strawberry Margarita Jello Shots
Does anything say summer quite like jello? And here is an adult way to get it, by learning how to make strawberry margarita jello shots. These treats are a fun way to start a party and impress your friends. They are very sweet, cool, refreshing and fun. Since the jello shot is poured in to a strawberry, it is also hard to have too many. This recipe combines a food element with the alcohol, which is always a good thing. Of course, since this treat is so delicious, it is always possibly someone could eat a few too many, so keep an eye on consumption all the same.
This recipe is probably for adults only since it contains alcohol. You could make a non-alcohol version, which kids would love. After all, who doesn't want to roll strawberries in sugar? As always, with kids helping, it is a good idea to have extras on hand as payment in kind for their services (and to ensure you end up with enough of your treat to serve!).
Strawberries are an interesting fruit. Some people react quickly, severely, and negatively to the fruit, and can tear up, get tightness in the throat, sneeze, itch or even swell up in response. Strawberries are also one of the best berries for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities. To get their full nutritional benefit, be sure to eat strawberries when they are fully ripened. Also, handle the fruit with care, not only because they can bruise easily, but also because rough handling can actually impact their nutritional content. Strawberries are loaded with vitamins C and B6 as well as omega-3 fats, fiber and other nutrients. They are very low in calories and may have anti-cancer benefits, help lower the chance of Type 2 diabetes among other health benefits. So eat your berries, particularly your strawberries.
Tequila is an alcohol derived from the agave plant in Mexico. The margarita supposedly originated in Mexico during prohibition when Americans flocked there in order to be able to drink. At the time, a drink called the Daisy made with brandy or gin was popular. Tequila, more available in Mexico, eventually replaced the other liquor. Margarita means daisy in Spanish.
