Serves: 16


  • 8 limes, cut in half
  • 8 ounces gin, divided
  • 2 envelope (¼ oz. each) Unflavored Gelatin
  • 1 cup tonic water


  • Squeeze lime halves, collecting juice in a measuring glass. Set aside for use in step 4.
  • Gently turn lime halves inside-out, taking care not to puncture peel. Gently rip lime segments away from peel, leaving an empty lime half. Turn inside-out again to form lime “bowl.” Place each in a muffin cup to stabilize.
  • Pour 4 ounces gin into a large shallow bowl; sprinkle gelatin over. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, bring remaining 4 ounces gin to a boil. Pour into gelatin mixture, stirring constantly to dissolve gelatin. Stir in tonic water and 1½ tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice. Save remaining lime juice for later use.
  • Gently pour 2 tablespoons gelatin mixture into each lime half. Refrigerate lime halves in muffin pan 2 hours until gelatin is set. Cut each lime half in half to make wedges.
