My strawberry cilantro margaritas were a hit for Cinco de Mayo, but why stop there? It wouldn't be a month at eisforeat.com without a jelly shot recipe.
These strawberry daiquiri shots are reminiscent of my strawberry cheesecake shots I posted on the blog in May of 2012.
The best part about both shots is the vessel that holds them is edible so you get the boozy fun of a jelly shot combined with a deliciously sweet strawberry. The alcohol in each bite is minimal, so they really become more dessert than cocktail.
To get the recipe and see the technique, head on over to Tablespoon.

Today, it happened as I was driving home from my hair appointment, and feeling grateful for the burst of sunny weather. (We've been in torrential downpour mode here in Connecticut this week and it's yet to hit 75 degrees this year).
The sun also made me think of... no joke... photography lighting. I decided I must take advantage of the gorgeous light.
But what to make?
Something easy. Hmmm... A cocktail.
Something springy. Well, May is National Strawberry Month.
Something festive. Cinco de Mayo is in four days. ARRIBA!!
