If I had to choose to eat one food for the rest of my life it would be Tacos. I love them in all shapes. There is a restaurant down the jersey shore called, Surf Taco, they call themselves coastal cuisine with fresh whole ingredients, fresh made pico & Verde salsa plus the are founded on: Eat Fresh, eat healthily and eat tasty. You know that is exactly what I love.
A few years ago the hubby and I threw an epic Cinco De Mayo Party. He made lime Jello shots – he really is the best. Here is the recipe he used by Jaymee Sire on Brit + Co.:
This will make approximately 24 lime “wedge” jello shots – 6-8 limes
– 3 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice
– 1-ounce water
– 1/4 cup sugar
– 1 package Knox unflavored gelatin (2 teaspoons)
– 3 ounces good quality tequila
– 1 ounce Grand Marnier or Cointreau (or Triple Sec if you must)
– sea salt and/or large crystal sugar, for garnish
To keep limes secure, place them in a mini muffin pan. Combine lime juice, an ounce of water and sugar in a small saucepan. Sprinkle with gelatin and allow it to soak for a minute or two. Warm over medium heat, stirring until sugar and gelatin dissolve. Stir in tequila and Grand Marnier and pour into lime halves. (I recommend using something with a spout like a measuring cup).
Allow to refrigerate at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. Once jello has set up, cut into wedges. Serve with a small bowl of sea salt or large crystal sugar for dipping.
