Cheeky little jelly shots

When life hands you lemons, make shots.

Ever since I saw the lovely Lorraine Pascale make these I have been itching to have a go myself. With the sun shining and the girls coming round for a few wines I couldn’t think of a better excuse!

To make the watermelon beauties you will need:

10 large limes

6 leaves of gelatine

Pack of raspberry jelly (you may have a little left over)

400 ml hot water

1 passion fruit (for seed decorations)

For a boozy twist I added Chambord…

– Put gelatine sheets in a bowl and cover with cold water. Pop kettle on to boil.
– Cut limes in half and scoop out the flesh. This is not as easy as it sounds so dedicate a little time. I ran mine under warm water which made it easier to pull out the insides.
– If you have a muffin tray, use it! Pop your hollow lime shells in the holes.
– Next break up you jelly, pop in a jug and add 400ml of hot water. 
– Now for the gelatine. Squeeze off any excess water and pop the now gooey soft leaves in to the jelly mixture. Stir until everything melts together. Add your booze of choice. 
– Pour jelly in to the lime shells. Pop in fridge to set. If you are in a rush put them in the freezer and they should set in about 30 mins.
– For the seed decorations scoop the seeds from a passion fruit on to some kitchen paper, dab the seeds dry and set aside. 
– Once they are firm, remove from the freezer. Using a sharp knife cut in half, decorate with seeds as desired… and Voila… Beautiful watermelon shots!
