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.
