Total: 2 hr 25 min Cook: 25 min

Yield: 24 wedges

Level: Intermediate



  • One 6-ounce package lime-flavored gelatin, such as Jell-O
  • 6 limes
  • 1/2 cup boiling water 
  • 1/2 cup club soda 
  • 1 cup citrus vodka 


  • Cut the limes in half from end to end. With a sharp knife, carefully cut around the inside of each lime and then scoop out the flesh. Remove the membrane from the inside of the lime peel.

  • Line a 12-cup cupcake tin with foil. Place a lime half, cut-side up, in each cup.

  • Empty the package of gelatin into a medium bowl. Pour over the boiling water and mix well, making sure the gelatin dissolves completely. Whisk in the club soda and citrus vodka, skimming the foam if needed.

  • Pour the gelatin mixture into each lime half. Refrigerate until set, 2 to 4 hours.

  • When set, cut each lime in half to make wedges.
