We have a thing for parades here in Louisiana and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. Baton Rouge’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade rolls through town on Saturday. To prepare for the celebration and inspired by our Hue of the Moment, Green Beam, we wanted to share with you guys a new take on an old favorite. Katie, one of our Store Managers, put together this treat and below she gives you the step by step process to making them on your own. Check out our lime Jell-O shots!
- 1 box of lime Jell-O
- Limes (as many as you would like)
- Your choice of liquor (we recommend Absolut Citron for a crisp and citrus flavor or Tequila for a quick interpretation of a “margarita” shot)
Cut the limes in half lengthwise and clear out the insides.
Prepare the Jell-O according to the instructions on the box. Reduce the water portion by ¼ cup and replace with your alcohol of choice.
You want to make sure that your limes are set onto a surface that will keep them up right. Katie used a muffin pan. Pour your Jell-O mix into the lime shells and then place them into the refrigerator to set over night or for however long the Jell-O box instructs.
When they are ready, cut each lime in half to make the perfect bight sized lime Jell-O shot!
Have a good time this weekend and be safe! As always, we would LOVE a pic of your Jell-O shot creation if you make them.
