Cosmopolitan inspired vegan jello shots served in lime wedges.
Ingredients
  • 10-12 limes
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (strained to remove pulp)
  • ¼ cup agave nectar
  • ¾ cup vodka
  • ¼ cup cointreau
  • 1¼ tsp. agar powder
Instructions
  1. Make sure that all of your ingredients are at room temperature.
  2. Slice your limes in half long ways and squeeze out lime juice. Save ¼ cup of lime juice for this recipe.
  3. Flip the lime inside out. Starting at one end, use your finger or a spoon to peel the flesh of the lime away from the rind. After most of the flesh is removed, scrape out the inside with a spoon to remove any remaining pulp.
  4. Flip the lime half back to its original shape and balance open side up on a mini cupcake pan.
  5. Whisk together the cranberry juice, agave and lime juice in a small pot.
  6. Sprinkle the agar powder on top and allow it to soak in for 5 minutes.
  7. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce heat. Allow the mixture to simmer for about 3 minutes until the agar powder is completely dissolved.
  8. Remove from heat and stir in the vodka and cointreau.
  9. Pour the jello mixture into each lime half. You'll want them filled as close to the top as possible without overflowing.
  10. Transfer to the refrigerator and allow to set for about 2 hours.
  11. Once set, cut each lime half in half again. To do this, place the limes jello side down and use a sharp serrated knife to cut through the rind. If your jello shot comes out of the lime, it needs more time in the fridge.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
*If you're not up for all the prep work with the limes, just make these the old fashioned way by using dixie cups with the top inch cut off.
