Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shots Ingredients

Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shots raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (3-ounce) box strawberry jello mix 
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • ½ cup white rum
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 40 whole fresh strawberries, as large as you can find
  • Granulated sugar for garnish
  • Lime wedges

PRO TIP:

PRO TIP: Use up to ¾ cup of rum for a stronger jello shot. Eliminate the cold water in this case: 1 cup boiling water, ¼ cup lime juice, and ¾ cup rum.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

LIME JUICE: If you don’t have freshly squeezed lime juice on hand, bottled lime juice can be substituted in this tasty recipe.

How to Make This Strawberry Daiquiri Jello Shots Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

The number of jello shots will depend on the size of the strawberries (and hollowed-out area). Unless the strawberries are gigantic, the inside of the strawberries won’t hold much more than a couple of teaspoons of jello. You can also pour some or extra of the liquid into traditional jello shot cups.

STEP ONE: In a medium bowl or large (4-cup) measuring cup with a spout, whisk together the strawberry jello mix and 1 cup of boiling water until the jello is fully dissolved.

PRO TIP:

To save time and dishes, I boil the 1 cup water in the microwave right in the glass measuring cup I mix everything up in.

STEP TWO: Once the jello is fully dissolved, stir in the cold water, lime juice, and rum. Mix until combined.

STEP THREE: Use a strawberry corer or sharp paring knife to cut the stem from each strawberry and hollow out a bit of a cavity to fill with the jello. Shave off just a bit from the bottom part of the strawberries can stand up.

STEP FOUR: Carefully pour the jello mixture into each strawberry. You can use a food syringe or a squirt bottle or simply pour with a steady hand.

STEP FIVE: Transfer jello shots to the refrigerator and chill for 2 to 3 hours until set.

STEP SIX: Just before serving, roll the top of each strawberry in granulated sugar and garnish with a very small lime wedge.

    Would you serve these for game day or the holidays?

    I think these are a cute idea for something different for the holidays! Could maybe even swap the strawberry jello for lime and have Christmas colors. 😊 Definitely will be making these for the holidays this year!
