  • 1 6 oz box of lime Jell-O
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • ½ cup cold water
  • ½ cup clear tequila
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • ¼ cup evaporated milk
  • Small plastic cups – I used these.


  • Mix boiling water with lime Jell-O and mix until the gelatin is dissolved. Add cold water tequila, and lime juice. Mix to combine.
  • Pour half of the mixture evenly across small cups (about 8). Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Mix the remaining Jell-O mixture with the evaporated milk (IMPORTANT – DO NOT REFRIGERATE)
  • Once the first layer of Jell-O is set, remove from the refrigerator.
  • Pour the Jell-O/milk mixture over the set green Jell-O mixture evenly across each of the cups.
  • It should make a separate lighter layer.
  • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.


****To serve, invert the cups and dip the rims in lime juice and place in sugar to coat the rims.
