Margarita Jell-O Shots
From Wayne Wallace
It seems everyone Iíve talked to is either on the Atkins Diet or one similar. My friend Wayne and his wife Sharon have been on a modified Atkins diet for a month or so. Wayne was saying ďabout the only dessert we have enjoyed during this time is sugar-free Jell-O; so, the other day while making some, I decided to experiment. Here's what I came up with but careful.....they sneak up on you!Ē
1 small box Lime Jell-O (sugar-free optional)
1 small box Lemon Jell-O (sugar-free optional)
2 cups Boiling Water
1/2 cup Tequila
1-1/2 cups Ice Cold Water
In a large bowl, combine Jell-O and boiling water; mix well until completely dissolved.
Add ice water and tequila. Pour into individual serving dishes. Chill in the refrigerator until firmly set. May serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
Note: Even though tempted to add more tequila, it becomes harder to jell with more than 1/2-cup.
Note: Wayne says to substitute apple juice for the water in sugar-free Jell-O....It helps.
