This Pink Starburst Shot is a sweet, creamy, and fruity shot that tastes JUST like the strawberry starburst candy! You only need 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make these sweet shots!
One of my favorite things about summer is throwing parties and hosting get togethers. I love getting creative with appetizers and cocktails; and one of my new favorite sweet drinks are these are these starburst shooters. Everyone's favorite starburst flavor is the pink strawberry one - so why not make a full recipe dedicated to this delicious simple shaker recipe.
These starburst shots are sweet and fruity and creamy; they taste so much like the actual pink starburst it's uncanny! You're going to have to be careful because you're going to want so many!
If you're looking for something sweet to enjoy at a Bachelorette party, ladies night, happy hour, Valentine's Day, even Galentine's Day and birthdays - just make a batch of these!
This pink starburst shot recipe is so easy to make with only a few simple ingredients! The main ingredients are:
Of course you'll also need shot glasses or cocktail glasses depending on how you want to serve these. I'd like to note because these are so smooth and silky, they also double as an exceptionally good cocktail for a pink starburst drink or a shooter cocktail.
I recommend using a cocktail shaker with a strainer and a jigger but it isn't essential. If you don't have a cocktail shaker, simply add all of the ingredients to a large cup or pitcher and mix together. I also recommend adding this to a blender if you don't have a cocktail shaker - it makes it extra smooth!
(optional first step) If you'd like to add a sugar to the rim of the glass, dip the glass in honey or corn syrup and then place in sugar. I used pink sanding sugar for a fun color!
You can also use vanilla frosting to dip the glass into to make this an extra sweet shot!
Make the shots by pouring vodka, watermelon pucker, sweet and sour mix, and a splash of cream into a cocktail shaker.
Add ice and shake vigorously for 20 seconds, until creamy and frothy! Then pour mixture into a shot glass or cocktail glass and serve. Be sure to strain the ice! Total time needed to make these - 5 minutes. It's incredible.
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to make the perfect cocktail. To make a large batch of this starburst drink, see the steps in the recipe card below!
All you have to do is add all of the ingredients to a large pitcher and give it a good stir. Then add to the refrigerator and allow it to cool until you're ready to serve.
Yes, this is a VERY easy recipe to make, however, there's a couple tips that will take these shots from great to grand!
You can use tequila, rums like Malibu or cahaca (a Brazilian rum that's delicious!). I don't recommend using gin or whiskey as the flavors would be too strong.
If you're looking for dairy free options or just don't have any heavy cream on hand, you can use cream of coconut or half and half instead. You can use the same amount as listed in the recipe card, just be sure to shake/blend well.
You can easily turn this shot into a mocktail by swapping watermelon schnapps for a watermelon or strawberry syrup, then swap out vodka for a non-alcoholic version of vodka like Strykk, and then add the heavy cream and sweet and sour mix as per usual. Same proportions apply!
