  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!

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...

these were a hit but very hard to make. i lost at least half of my jello from leakage. Fun thing if you can figure out how not to tear lime.

It does take some patience - but well worth it! I made these for a July 4th party (HUGE hit!) and plan on it for my Labor Day party. Instead of sesame seeds, I used Black Hawaiian Lava Salt I h...

I should have watch the video. will the next time

This is brilliant! Can't wait to make them for adult cookouts this summer.

These were super cute but very time consuming. It would have been worth the time if they tasted good but the jello absorbed the flavor of the lime rind, which tasted awful and bitter; hence the ...
