Lime wedge, for rimming glasses
Red sanding sugar, for rimming glasses
1 c. water
2 (3-oz.) packets lime Jell-O
8 oz. vodka, chilled
Whipped cream, for garnish
Mint leaves, for garnish
Red Hots, for garnish
Run a lime wedge around the rim of each shot glass then dip each shot glass into red sanding sugar.
Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Once bubbling, stir in lime Jell-O, stirring until completely dissolved. Turn off heat. Pour in vodka or tequila (or whatever your preferred alcohol is), mixing until thoroughly combined.
Pour into a large measuring cup, small pitcher or another glass so it's easier to pour into shot glasses. Pour Jell-O mixture into each shot glass. Place shot glasses into refrigerator until Jell-O sets, about 2 hours.
Garnish with whipped cream, mint leaves, and Red Hot candies before serving.
