Strawberry Daiquiri Jelly Shots

  • Line
  • strawberry-daiquiri-jelly-shots

INGREDIENTS

1 3-ounce box strawberry gelatin dessert
1 cup water
1/2 cup clear rum
1/4 cup Grand Marnier (or triple sec or Cointreau)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
50 large strawberries (approximately 3-4 pounds)
Granulated sugar (for rimming)
Mini lime wedges (for garnish)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine a small package of strawberry gelatin and 1 cup of water. Heat on the stove until the gelatin has dissolved. Stir in ½ cup rum, ¼ cup Grand Marnier (or triple sec) and ¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice. Set aside.
  2. Shave a tiny bit from the bottoms of the strawberries. Be careful that you don’t take too much off… just enough to allow them to stand upright. Then, hollow out the strawberries, using a strawberry huller, paring knife or grapefruit spoon.
  3. Set strawberries snugly into a pan and fill them with spiked gelatin. Refrigerate and allow to set 3-4 hours.
  4. Just before you’re ready to serve, rotate the “rim” of the strawberry in sugar. Garnish with mini lime wedges, if desired, and serve!
