How To Prepare Lemon Jello Shots

🔪 First, carefully cut off the ends of the lemons so they are able to stand firm on their own, but don’t cut past the pith.

🍋 Secondly, slice lemon in half and using a citrus juicer extract as much as you can out. I don’t like to completely hollow them out as I love eating the remains with more chamoy and tajin.

🍯 Bring the water, honey and monk fruit to a boil.

🍾 Sprinkle the gelatin over the lemon juice and let stand 1-3 minutes. Then, add in hot liquid and mix well, until incorporated. Strain. Add in some tajin and mezcal.

🌶 Lastly, rim the lemons with chamoy and tajin, fill them with the mezcalita and place in a tall sided container. Place in the fridge, mine solidified in 1 hour.
