7 Tequila Shots That Aren’t Just Lime and Salt
Whether you want to spice up your weekly Taco Tuesday or you're celebrating a special occasion, these tasty tequila shots are just what your night is missing.
Margarita Jell-O Shots
Convert one of our favorite margarita recipes into a Jell-O shot. Keep it classic like Bread Booze Bacon does with lime juice and sweet and sour mix or get creative with the flavor and add fresh fruit or different juices.
Fried Tequila Shots
From state fair-style Oreos to chicken, frying makes everything taste better—including tequila, apparently! This recipe from Lemons for Lulu will teach you how to do just that (and it involves booze-soaked angel food cake). Just make sure you avoid making these common deep-frying mistakes.
Watermelon Tequila Jello Shots
Fun fact: While they look like mini watermelons, there’s actually no watermelon in the shots created by Kirbie’s Cravings. Instead, they’re made with strawberry Jell-O that’s poured into empty lime rinds and then topped with black sesame seeds to finish off the adorable effect.
Paloma Pink Grapefruit Shots
You want a paloma (which is one of the classic Mexican drinks everyone should know)—but you don’t want an entire cocktail. The solution? This pretty pink shot version from Take Two Tapas, which features pink grapefruit juice and a Himalayan salt rim.
Soul Taker Shots
The name says it all. This is not a shot for the faint of heart! A potent—yet pleasing—combo of vodka, tequila and amaretto, the Soul Taker from Mix That Drink is super easy to mix up (and adjust for a crowd) as it’s just equal parts of each liquor.
Salted Lime Tequila Shooters
Tequila and lime go together like peanut butter and jelly—which is why these shots created by Sweet C’s will be a crowd favorite. They’re even served right in the lime rind (instead of a glass) with a sprinkle of salt on top.
Tequila Sunrise Jell-O Shots
To make these tequila sunrise shots from Happiness is Homemade, you’ll need orange and cherry Jell-O, orange and cherry juices and of course, maraschino cherries and orange slices for the garnish. Wondering what else you can mix with tequila? Here are some of our favorites mixers.
