The other day I was at Wal-Mart cruising the isles as fast as I could so I could get out of that place. Wal-Mart is always packed and given the fact I live in the sticks I can't hardly stand to be there. It is too congested for my liking, but it is a dirty job and I am the one in this household that has to do it. I was making my lap down the adult beverage isle and spotted these.
Of course I thought I better try these new Jell-O varieties......so it was the names of the Jell-O that sold me on it.
So far I have made the margarita Jell-O. I followed the recipe on the box for the non-alcholoic sparkling ice recipe. Here it is:
1 Cup boiling water
1 pkg. (4 serving size) Jell-O brand margarita flavor gelatin
1 Cup carbonated lemon-line beverage
1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Stir boiling water into dry gelatin in medium bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add carbonated beverage, lemon peel and juice. Stir until well blended. Pour into a 9 inch square pan and cover.
Freeze 3 hours or until firm. Remove from freezer and let stand 10 minutes at room temperature.
Beat with electric mixer on high speed in medium bowl until smooth. Spoon evenly into 6 dessert dishes. Serve immediately or store in freezer. Makes 6 servings.
Here is what you end up with.
It is a cool and refreshing treat, but I thought it was missing a little something.......
Ahhhhh, much better. The tequila made it much more like a smoothie consistency and I was able to drink it with a straw.
PERFECT!!!!!!! The only problem is I only bought 2 packages of Margarita Jell-O. WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!! I wonder if they will sell Margarita Jell-O in a "6 pack"?!?!
