Recipe Description

This is a great treat for the heat when you are having an adult party.  These are a fun shots made with jello and vodka.  They look like little watermelon pieces and are easy to make.  Can make ahead of time and keep in the fridge until party time.  It will be a hit with all party goers and you will be asked for the recipe! Enjoy!

Recipe Directions


Halve limes and use a paring knife around the edges of the halves to loosen the pulp from the rind. My technique was to do this, and then juice them with my KitchenAid attachment, which helped remove the loosened pulp. Plus, then I got a cup of freshly squeezed lime juice! I also used my (clean) fingers to finally help scrape out the resilient pulp under a running faucet. Set lime halves aside, empty side up.

Add 1 cup of boiling water to the Jello powder, and stir for 2 minutes until fully dissolved.

Stir in cup of cold vodka.

Pour mixture into lime halves, filling all the way to the top.

Chill Jello-limes in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Using a sharp knife, carefully cut each lime half in half again, making wedges.

Stick in chocolate chips, if desired.
