Margarita Jello Limes
Makes 16-20 limes
8-10 limes, halved
2 tablespoons powdered gelatin
3 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups superfine sugar
3/4 cup natural margarita mix
1/2 cup tequila (optional) 
Bull’s Bay salt to garnish

Gently remove all pulp and fibers from the lime halves using a grapefruit spoon, keeping the skin intact. Place the halves, cut-side up, in muffin tins and set aside. Bring water to a boil. Add the gelatin to 1 cup of boiling water and whisk to dissolve. In a separate bowl, add the sugar and tequila (if desired) to the remaining 2 cups of boiling water and whisk to dissolve. Whisk the gelatin mixture into the sugar mixture; set aside to cool slightly, then stir in the margarita mix. Pour the mixture evenly into the lime shells and place in the fridge overnight to set. After the gelatin is set, use a very sharp knife dipped in warm water to slice the gelatin limes into wedges, then sprinkle with salt and serve!
