Tangy rhubarb puree and vodka-macerated berries make Boozy Strawberry Rhubarb Shooters an extra-special adult treat. They’re garnished with sweet “candied rhubarb ribbons” that make them perfect for entertaining all Summer long!
What’s really cool is, by making the rhubarb ribbons first, the byproduct is producing your own homemade rhubarb syrup. Then you use the syrup to cook down fresh rhubarb to make the tangy puree!
If you’re one of my loyal readers, you know that I love to use signage on my buffets and that goes for my individual serving items too.
And of course, that’s especially true for a big tray of fun jello shots like these Boozy Strawberry Rhubarb Shooters.
Now you’ll have a fabulous “party-ready” tray of delectable adult delights!

Rhubarb and strawberries are indeed a match made in heaven. And when you add some vodka, you’ve got a fabulous recipe for Boozy Strawberry Rhubarb Shooters! It’s truly a favorite Summertime fruity combination of sweet and tangy – absolutely fabulous!
What makes this recipe extra-special is the addition of rhubarb puree to the traditional gelatin and alcohol mixture. Now I will tell you this, the texture is softer and is not “bouncy” like a plain strawberry jello shot.
I personally love the mouth-feel of this parfait-like shooter. I think you and your friends will too!
When you macerate berries it softens the berries, and if using sugar, sweetens them too.
The process is perfect for giving a little extra sweetness to berries that aren’t as nice as you’d like.
You can macerate fruits in any number of things, including balsamic vinegar or just plain sugar.
The actual softening is done by the liquid added or produced by the sugar extracting the fruit’s moisture.
The sugar pulls out the juices of the fruit forming a syrup and turns a tasteless berry into a sweet one.
In this recipe we macerate the berries in vodka, and that both softens them and will give an extra “kick” to your Boozy Strawberry Rhubarb Shooters.
Yes, I know it might be a little extra trouble to prepare a batch of CANDIED RHUBARB RIBBONS. But once you take a nibble, it will immediately become clear to you. They are absolutely delicious, with or without a Boozy Strawberry Rhubarb Shooter attached!
Here’s a quick summary of the steps to make fabulous CANDIED RHUBARB RIBBONS:
When I decided to make jello shots, I hopped on Amazon and found these great 3-ounce sized disposable shot glasses that are just perfect!
They came in a pack of 250 and are nice and sturdy.
No, I won’t have to order any more for a very long time, but hopefully they’ll inspire me to do more “individual” portioned stuff!

Here’s another great way to celebrate the summer with a fabulous Mexican cocktail-inspired jello shot.
It’s my PINK PALOMA JELLO SHOTS WITH GRAPEFRUIT SUGAR RIMS.
They’re prepared with a homemade grapefruit gelatin and tequila, and are a beautiful color.
Of course I created two different versions, these have some with “star cut outs” too!
They came out MUY YUMMY, if I do say so myself. Actually, the hubby loved them too, and he’s not a big fan of tequila. Now that’s an endorsement!
You’ll notice I did Pick Signs for them too, actually this is only 1 of 3 different designs I created for you!
