  1. Slice limes in half crosswise, juice the limes, reserving juice for another use, and turn the rinds inside out. Scrape membranes and flesh from lime halves and turn peels back to form small cups with the green rind on the outsides. Place halves in a small dish, edges touching, to keep cups standing and upright.
  2. Stir watermelon gelatin mix with boiling water in a bowl, mixing until gelatin is completely dissolved. Let cool to room temperature and stir vodka into gelatin. Pour gelatin mixture into lime peel cups. Refrigerate until set, 2 to 4 hours.
  3. Use a sharp knife to cut each lime cup wedges. Sprinkle wedges with black sesame seeds.

I used 1/2 cup watermelon schnapps and 1/2 cup vodka. The shots turned out great!


A huge hit! They came out perfect. The video is essential on how to make them. You do need to turn the rind inside out to remove all of the pulp and skin. Once you get the hang of this it is relatively easy. Lime rinds are pretty tough. I used 13 limes and all but 1 came out perfect. A 3oz. box of jello filled 10 halved limes (so 40 wedges). I put cupcake liners in a muffin tin and placed a lime half in each well. You can lean them against the edge to keep them level. I made them the night before and let them set up all night. To cut the halves into wedges you need to turn the lime face down so you cut through the rind first and don't destroy the jello. I used Pucker (watermelon flavored vodka). For me they were a little strong. I made these for a club party and everyone loved them. I had people following me around to try to steal seconds and thirds. They are time consuming but were the hit of the party. Without liquor they would be a great party treat for kids. I am pretty sure people will be begging me to make them again and again!!!


I agree with Shelley. these were hard to make. wear gloves. the video gives a lovely unrealistic view of peeling the membrane away. Not so easy and yes do not rip the bottom of your lime cup. I had way more jello left over to do more than 5 limes. Oh maybe that counts for the spillage. Also I used my hard boiled egg holder to set the limes in. They are beautiful though.
