    Great shots ~ so easy and straight forward to make. I did add 1 packet of Knox Gelatin to the mix. Made for a large event I am hosting tomorrow (If there are any left ~ I just can't help being a Margarita girl). Thank you for sharing the recipe Janice. ~ Maybe I should add that I made the shots in wilton silicone molds, once set they just peeled out ~ so easy and everyone loved the shapes instead of the plastic cups!  -  10 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    2.20.18 Whoa, be prepared because they are “boozy,” but oh so good! I was wondering if the margarita flavor would come through using cherry Jelll-O...and well, it does. As a suggestion, if you plan to cut them into shapes, be sure to use a shallow dish. My dish was a bit too deep/too small, and made cutting the hearts a little difficult. I definitely can see this for St. Patrick’s Day, varying the recipe by using lime Jelll-O, cutting into shamrock shapes, and sprinkling some flaked salt on them. JaniceL, thanks for a fun recipe.  -  20 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
