Celebrating Cinco De Mayo Like an Adult

Cinco De Mayo falls on a Monday this year, and although that may not be conducive to multiple margaritas or shots of Patron, it shouldn’t mean the day should go uncelebrated. Check out these oh so cute adult treats. Some fresh lime juice, sugar, tequila, and some Grand Marnier conveniently served up in lime rinds. If you’re looking for a respectable way to bring jello shots to your friends dinner party (and who isn’t) this is it! See below for the ingredients and check out Brit + Co for the step by step process.

  • 6-8 limes
  • 3 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ounce water
  • ¼ 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
