It’s getting closer to that time of year and we’re thinking about throwing a small Halloween Party for the kids, wanting to make little treats and party food for them I’ve started to experiment with them and developed a Slimy Limey Lemonade recipe that is “gross” as my eldest said but delicious – especially as both of mine love lime flavoured anything the sourer the better.
Ingredients Needed for Slimey Limey Lemonade – Halloween Recipe
1/2 packet of Lime Jelly (Lime Jello)
250ml of boiling water
Makeup to 1litre with Sprite or 7Up
With Lime Jelly Cubes as we used you don’t need to make up the jelly first, but if you are using powdered jelly then makeup a pot of jelly allow to set and then use as follows.
Cut up the jelly into small pieces inside a jug – we found it easiest with the kids to put the cubes in the bottom and get them to snip them into smaller pieces, but when I did it I found it easiest to snip off small pieces.
Into the jug pour boiling water to dissolve the jelly but don’t let it dissolve fully – get the kids to stir until the liquid is green and there are still some jelly pieces at the bottom.
Pour into a larger jug and stir in the Sprite/7UP. The green froth on the top was my eldest’s favourite bit and he loved to taste it (YUCK!)
Then pour into an old bottle or bowl and ladle or pour out to delight your guests, don’t forget a little of the slime from the bottom of the bowl or bottle to make it extra slimy.
