I got to see all the friends I hadn't seen since last semester or since the summer. I made new friends. I danced around on our roof deck. And yes, I took some jello shots. Not just any jello shots. Raspberry-and-vodka-filled-lime-wedge shots. What can I say, they were pretty cool.
You know that horrible process of having to get the jello shot out of the cup; the plastic breaks or half of the shot stays stuck. Well, with this awesome creation (many thanks to Michelle at That's So Michelle) gets rids of all those complications.
What better party treat than cute and colorful hassle-free jello shots!
Raspberry Lime Jello Wedges (adapted from That's So Michelle)
- 10 limes, sliced in half
- 1 box Raspberry jello
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup vodka
- Squeeze limes to get the juice out and loosen the pulp. Reserve lime juice for other use (you can make cocktails or limeade). Using a paring knife, go around the inside of the knife to loosen up a bit more. Then using your fingers or a spoon, hollow out the lime so that only the peel is left. Arrange lime halves on a rimmed baking sheet
- Bring water to a boil. Remove from heat and dissolve jello. Add vodka and stir constantly until well combined.
- Pour mix into lime halves and place sheet in the refrigerator. Cool overnight.
- With a sharp knife, carefully slice lime halves in two. Serve immediately.
