Halloween Jello shots anyone? Jello shots are one of those timeless party favorites that you really can’t go wrong with. This week we’re sharing a recipe for a spooky Halloween themed version of our low-calorie margarita Jello shots. Yes I said low-calorie, so all of you uptight drinkers can put down the vodka and club soda cocktails that have absolutely no flavor and enjoy yourselves for once. If you can’t find the brand below, feel free to check your mixers section at your local grocery, they typically have a substitute.
Green Goblin Jell-O Shots
- 10 limes (the larger, the better)
- 1 packet lemon Jell-O mix
- 1 cup tequila
- ½ cup water
- 1 bottle Be Mixed Zero-Calorie & Sugar Free “Margarita” Cocktail Mixer
- 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Instructions: Zest 2 limes, then halve all. Using a small sharp knife, cut around the edges of the flesh at an angle and remove as much as possible, then scrape out any remaining flesh using a fork or a small spoon. Discard all the flesh. Place cut-side up on a baking sheet.
In a small pot, bring water and Be Mixed to a boil over high heat. As soon as it’s boiling, pour over Jell-O in a heatproof bowl and stir until fully dissolved, about 2 minutes. Stir in tequila.
Carefully pour the mixture into the lime halves, filling all the way. Carefully transfer to the fridge and chill until set, 2-3 hours or overnight.
While the mixture chills, in a small bowl, stir together salt, lime zest, and chili powder.
