Tequila Lime Jello Shots


If you’re headed out for a weekend of camping with friends, we’re making the assumption there may be a few adult beverages consumed. A typical weekend camping for us consists of a few hikes, meals over the campfire, lawn games and some fantastic beverages. Break out of the ordinary beer or simple cocktail that you usually go with and try these Tequila Lime Jello Shots.

Oh, and did you know that you can easily avoid hangovers by these throughout the night? They make a HUGE difference the next day.

Want to really blow their minds? Serve them in Himalayan Sea Salt Shot Glasses! The salt is built into the shooter!

No one wants to spend a lot of time preparing before or during your camping trip. These jello shots are extremely easy to make and taste fantastic. One reason that we really love these shots is because of all the variations you can make. If you let your imagination run wild you can add a bit of triple sec to tequila and lime Jello for a margarita shot, or use a base of orange Jello and add grenadine for tequila sunrise shots.

We suggest using small dixie cups or condiment cups to make it easy to transport the shots. We have made these and variations of these jello shots many times for camping trips and they have always been received well.
