PATRIOTIC STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI JELLO SHOTS

Get into the Holiday Spirit with these Red, White & Blue Patriotic Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shots.  These fabulous jewels are spiked with blueberries and fruity star shapes for a festive holiday adult treat!

This is such an easy recipe!  It combines strawberry jello and rum, but kicks it up a notch by substituting strawberry nectar for some of the recipe’s water.

And to make these especially Patriotic Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shots, I cut out apple and watermelon stars for yummy add-ins.  That took care of the red and white, and the blue would be a handful of blueberries thrown in.

It’s really just that easy to make up a whole platter of Patriotic Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shots to greet your guests. Let me amend that to “adult guests”!   They truly are a handy holiday hostess hack!

Then I wondered how I could kick it up one more notch.  Since I’m serving these delicious jello shots for the 4th of July, it was a no-brainer.  I’d create a whole selection of “PATRIOTIC PICK” signs for my jello shots and desserts!  

I’ll tell you how to get your own set of Patriotic Picks a little later.

 

WANT ANOTHER FABULOUS ADULT JELLO SHOT RECIPE TOO?

pink paloma jello shots with grapefruit sugar rimsHere’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 too have some with “star cut outs”! 

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!

Patriotic Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shots

Yield: 16 shots
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Additional Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 22 minutes

Get into the Patriotic Spirit with these Red, White & Blue strawberry daiquiri jello shots. They're spiked with blueberries and apple and watermelon stars for a festive holiday adult treat!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 3 oz. pkg. strawberry gelatin
  • 3/4 cup rum, chilled
  • 1/2 cup strawberry nectar, chilled (canned)
  • Fresh blueberries
  • 2 large apples
  • Ripe watermelon
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 oz. plastic shot glasses

Instructions

  1. Pour boiling water into medium bowl. Whisk water while slowing sprinkling in the gelatin powder. Continue to whisk until all the gelatin has dissolved.
  2. Add rum and nectar to the bowl and whisk to combine. Pour into a large glass measuring cup or a container with a spout.
  3. Place your shot glasses into a rimmed cake or baking pan. Carefully pour the strawberry daiquiri mixture into shot glasses, about 2/3 full. Place filled glasses into the refrigerator to start to set up. Start checking them after 20-25 minutes
  4. Pour 2 cups water into a medium bowl and add lemon juice. While jello shots are chilling, cut apples and watermelon into 1/2 inch thick slices. Punch out star shaped fruits with a metal or plastic star cutter. Place apple stars in the lemon water and place watermelon stars on a plate.
  5. When jello shots have thickened, push a few berries and one each of the fruit stars. Try to position the stars near the sides of the glass to show through the jello.
  6. Place the finished jello shots back into the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving.
