Step 1

Pour lime juice, sweetener and water in a saucepan, sprinkle with gelatin. Allow gelatin to soak for a few minutes.

Heat over very low heat until gelatin is dissolved, stirring constantly (approximately 5 minutes).

Remove from heat, stir in tequila and blue curaçao.

Pour into pan. Refrigerate until fully set (several hours or overnight).

To serve, cut into desired shapes.

Immediately before serving, dip one side of the jelly shots into large crystal sugar, or provide a small container for dipping. (The sugar looks beautiful, but melts quickly!)
