Cherry Limeade Jello Shots- 8 large limes
- 2 packages cherry Jello (3 oz each)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 cup citrus vodka
- 1/3 to1/2 cup lime juice (depending on desired taste)
- 1/2 cup ice cold water
Cut the limes in half lengthwise. Squeeze the juice out into a separate container and set aside. Use a spoon to scoop out all of the insides and pulp. You can use a paring knife to help separate the inside, but be sure not to cut through the peel. Once you have them all completely juiced and cleaned out, place each of the halves into a muffin tin, with the open sides up.
Prepare the Jello mixture by mixing 1 cup of boiling water with two packages of cherry Jello. Stir until the Jello has completely disolved. Then, add the 1 cup citrus vodka, 1/2 cup of strained lime juice that you got from the limes, and 1/2 cup ice water. Stir until cooled.
Pour the Jello mixture into each lime half so that they are completely full. Carefully move the muffin tin to the fridge and chill for at least 4 hours, until hardened.
Once the Jello is firm, and you're ready to serve, cut each half into three slices. Turn the lime halves over on a cutting board and then make each slice in one fluid motion using a very sharp, warm, non-serrated knife. Share with friends and enjoy!!
