For the strawberry layer: 

  • 1 Cup boiling water
  • 1` Box strawberry flavored gelatin 3 ounces
  • 1 Cup rum strawberry-flavored, chilled
  • 12 strawberries diced into ¼” cubes, about 2 cups, diced

For the cheesecake layer: 

  • 2 Cup milk cold
  • 1 Cup heavy whipping cream cold
  • 1 Cup rum strawberry-flavored, chilled
  • 2 Boxes instant pudding 3.4 ounces, cheesecake-flavored

For the garnish: 

  • whipped cream 
  • 3 graham crackers crushed 


For the strawberry layer: 

  • Remove boiling water from heat source. In a 1.5-quart saucepan (or other similarly sized heatproof container), add strawberry gelatin to boiling water. Whisk until gelatin has completely dissolved. Add chilled strawberry rum. Stir to mix.
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of diced strawberries into each 2-ounce shot glass. Add about 1 tablespoon (½-ounce) of gelatin over top of the diced strawberries in each cup. Submerge the strawberries using the spoon so that they’re evenly distributed in the gelatin. Refrigerate for 1½ hours or until set.  

For the cheesecake layer: 

  • While gelatin is chilling, stir together milk, heavy whipping cream, and rum. Add powdered pudding mix to liquid and whisk constantly for 2 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use. (Pudding will be slightly thinner than usual.) 

To assemble the shots: 

  • Remove set gelatin from the refrigerator along with the cheesecake pudding mixture. Whisk the pudding, stirring until smooth. Top each shot with about 2½ tablespoons of the prepared pudding. Refrigerate for 1 hour.  
  • Top with whipped cream and crushed graham crackers just before serving.
