Clio Jello Shots

Makes 6-8


1 oz. lime juice

1 oz. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, sugar dissolved)

¼ oz. gelatin sheet or powder

4 oz. vodka

1 oz. Cointreau

Sea salt, fresh mint leaves, and cayenne for garnish


Pour the lime juice and simple syrup into a mixing bowl, then add gelatin and let sit for three minutes. Microwave for 20 seconds, until the gelatin just melts. Add the vodka and Cointreau, pour into shot glasses, and refrigerate until set. Before serving, remove from the fridge so they warm up just a bit (enough to become slightly wiggly) and top with sea salt, fresh mint leaves, and some cayenne pepper. Slurp away.
