With refreshing lime flavor and a festive look, these cool margaritas are perfect for parties. To make a no-alcohol version, simply replace the tequila with an equal amount of water.—Barbara Gersitz, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"Quite tasty, but I did make a few changes. Made the lime gelatin w/ 2-1/2 c boiling water the day before eating so well set. Poured mixture into 4 margarita glasses. Just before serving I rubbed the rims w/ a lime twist, flipped them upside down to coat w/ sugar in a bowl, then stirred w/ a fork. Also added a large dollop of whipped cream on top of each dessert (it needs something!). Would make again and the presentation is terrific! A nice light finish to a Mexican dinner."
