Strawberries and Booze Part 1

Jello shots are not just for college

Jello shots are not just for college kids

Hey we do have Spirits in our title and it is Wednesday, so let’s get to it.

Strawberry Shooters

  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1 package gelatin
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup vanilla vodka
  • 2 ounces Chambord

Wash and hull strawberries. Use paring knife to cut a small hole in the top of each berry, about a teaspoon for bigger berries, half that for smaller. Save the cut-out portions. Position the berries cavity side up in a cookie sheet. Set aside. Blend reserved berry chunks with Chambord. Add vodka and set aside. Strain to remove berry bits, if needed. In a small saucepan, combine gelatin and water, stir until just combined. Add sugar and then add the gelatin mix to the vodka mix and stir to combine. Fill each strawberry with the booze mixture. Place any reserve mix into ramekins. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours, until set.

Aren’t berries and booze a great combo? That’s rhetorical. Here are some of our other favorite pairings.

About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
