I’m Cheryl and I’m a working mother who believes in making everyday special.... My family and I like to celebrate everyday! I enjoy planning events at our house and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
I must give "props" where props are due! Get it???
Anyway, the best prop is the wading pool...LOVE it!
Ameroonie Designs.blogspot.com designed this creative party for her kids last day of school. She describes in her post that she used things from around her house, dollars store finds and cute things she purchased for the kids for the summer. Read more here.
Brit & Co shares a fantastic tutorial with great instructions on hollowing out the limes to make these beauties!
Bottoms up is much easier with these!
This will make approximately 24 lime “wedge” jello shots…feel free to double the recipe. ;)
- 6-8 limes
- 3 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 ounce water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 package Knox unflavored gelatin (2 teaspoons)
- 3 ounces good quality tequila
- 1 ounce Grand Marnier or Cointreau (or Triple Sec if you must)
- sea salt and/or large crystal sugar, for garnish
To keep limes secure, place them in a mini muffin pan. Combine lime juice, an ounce of water and sugar to small saucepan. Sprinkle with gelatin and allow it to soak in a minute or two. Warm over medium heat, stirring until sugar and gelatin dissolve. Stir in tequila and Grand Marnier and pour into lime halves. (I recommend using something with a spout like a measuring cup).
Allow to refrigerate at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. Once jello has set up, cut into wedges.
