Cinco De Mayo Jello Shots

We made Jello shots in Oranges (and the web and Pinterest Loves them)
Click HERE for our original jello shots...

Now here are some Tequila Inspired jello shots!
Brit & Co shares a fantastic tutorial with great instructions on hollowing out the limes to make these beauties!
Bottoms up is much easier with these!

This will make approximately 24 lime “wedge” jello shots…feel free to double the recipe. ;)
- 6-8 limes
- 3 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 ounce water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 package Knox unflavored gelatin (2 teaspoons)
- 3 ounces good quality tequila
- 1 ounce Grand Marnier or Cointreau (or Triple Sec if you must)
- sea salt and/or large crystal sugar, for garnish

To keep limes secure, place them in a mini muffin pan. Combine lime juice, an ounce of water and sugar to small saucepan. Sprinkle with gelatin and allow it to soak in a minute or two. Warm over medium heat, stirring until sugar and gelatin dissolve. Stir in tequila and Grand Marnier and pour into lime halves. (I recommend using something with a spout like a measuring cup).

Allow to refrigerate at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. Once jello has set up, cut into wedges.
Serve with sugar or salt or a combo!
