Key Lime Margarita Jell-O Shot: Slightly more tart but sweet version of your basic margarita using a key lime pie cream liqueur and of course, lots of tequila.
It’s Election day.
It’s also Tipsy Tuesday. 🙂
So I wanted a no nonsense Jell-O shot.
Today is probably going to be a tequila shot kind of day. 🙂
Or maybe it won’t.
But I know a lot of people are stressing about the outcomes of today’s mid-terms.
And we should.
The current environment we have politically is not a nice one.
I’m hoping that will change.
These shots us Margaritaville Gelatin Margarita Flavor.
It is a specialty item that I order online, I highly suggest you do too.
I use this flavor a lot.
Which means you will see it again on here.
If you don’t want to get the margarita gelatin you can use lime but it really won’t be the same.
Since this uses a cream liqueur the cream won’t mix that great with the booze but it taste good so ignore it.
There are other key lime pie flavored liqueurs that you can sub out if you cannot find the Keke Beach Key Lime Pie Cream Liqueur.
I’ve already voted by mail here in WA state. If you haven’t voted early…please go and vote.
I promise it really does matter.
