  • Place the plastic cups in a baking dish or small baking sheet so they're easy to transport.
  • In a small mixing bowl, sprinkle the gelatin powder over 1/4 cup cold water, and allow the powder to soak in for 2 minutes.
  • While whisking, pour the hot water into the gelatin and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Add the sugar, and whisk until dissolved.
  • Add the sweet and sour, lime juice, and tequila and stir to combine.
  • Pour the jello mix into each of the plastic cups, filling them 3/4 full.
  • Transfer the jello shot to the refrigerator and chill until set, 2 to 3 hours.
  • Remove the shots from the fridge and top with a 1/4 lime slice.
  • Serve immediately or cover with a lid and refrigerate until ready to serve.
