Red, White and Blue Strawberry "Shots"

Family Favorites


Need a quick and easy item to bring to your summer get-together, picnic or BBQ? These are quick and easy (...not to mention delicious!) They disappear as soon as they are served, so make a bunch.

(Of course, omit the alcohol for children and be sure to have the adult version out of reach or clearly marked!)

How to Make Red, White and Blue Strawberry "Shots"


  1. Cut a small piece off of the bottom of each strawberry so that they stand upright. Then, hull each berry, making sure not to pierce the bottom. Cut a small "X" 1/2 to 2/3 of the way down the berry. Place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.
  2. Place whipping cream in chilled glass bowl and whip until it starts to thicken. Add sugar, vanilla and vodka or rum. Continue to whip until soft peaks form. Pipe or spoon into berries. Top with blueberry. Serve immediately.
  3. *** Note: These can be made with alcohol infused aerosol whipped cream already made, available now at most liquor stores.
