  • 1 cup strawberry puree
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime and lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1-1/4 cup clear tequila


  1. In a saucepan off the heat, mix strawberry puree, lime juice, and honey.
  2. Allow to sit for 5 minutes so the gelatin can absorb the liquid, and then stir with a whisk or fork again to break up any gelatin clumps.
  3. Heat over medium heat until gelatin is dissolved and mixture is warm, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in honey and tequila.
  5. Mix with whisk or fork.
  6. Pour into a rectangle 2-quart dish, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the fridge until firm, 4+ hours.
  7. Cut into squares and serve :)
  8. Recipe makes about 8 shots' worth.
