Cinco de Mayo Jello Shots

Ingredients:
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
sea salt and/or large crystal sugar, for garnish

Deep Fried Tequila Recipe

Instructions:
Gently juice the lime (collecting into a measuring cup).

Then peel the pulp away from the peel. You can use a paring knife or grapefruit knife, but I’ve actually found that using my finger nails works best.

Repeat until you have 12 lime halves and enough lime juice to equal 3 ounces. (You only need 6 limes for the shots, but you might need extra for more juice and/or in case you tear a few).

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.

Allow to refrigerate at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. Once jello has set up, cut into wedges.

Serve with a small bowl of sea salt or large crystal sugar for dipping. (Or a combination of the two!)
