Happy Hour

Well I'm already getting ready for Cinco de Mayo!  I love celebrating Mexcian-style and I love margaritas even more!  Enjoy these Margarita Bites at your next Fiesta! 

Margarita Bites


2 cups boiling water
2 pkg.  (3 oz. each) JELL-O Margarita Flavor Gelatin (or lime flavored)
1/2 cup tequila or cold water
Zest and juice from 1 lime
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

ADD boiling water to gelatin mixes in large bowl; stir with whisk 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in tequila and 2 Tbsp. lime juice. Add COOL WHIP and 1 tsp. lime zest; stir until COOL WHIP is completely melted and mixture is well blended.
