With 4th of July just a few days away, I’m sure everyone is eagerly trying to nail down their plans for the big holiday. Whatever it is you do, be it firework gazing, barbecue cooking, beach laying, sandcastle building, just be sure that these 9 patriotically boozy desserts are on the menu.
Red White and Blue Strawberry Jello Shooters
These vodka-infused blueberry jello shots are made inside the actual strawberries, which is equally as impressive and pretty as it is patriotic.
Bourbon Soaked Cherry Pie
It’s your (bourbon) cherry pie, cold drink of water such a sweet (and boozy) surprise.
Fireworks Red White and Blue Daiquiris
Okay yes these red, white and blue daiquiris aren’t technically dessert but they’re so pretty and refreshing, with coconut sorbet, white rum, blue passion fruit liqueur AND blue curacao liqueur that there was no way they weren’t making this list.
Blueberry Mojito Cupcakes
These rum, mint and blueberry cupcakes are here to represent the “blue” of the “red, white and blue.”
Strawberry Amaretto Marshmallows
So pretty, so fluffy, and yet so sophisticated with the combo of strawberry puree and a sweet almond flavor courtesy of the Amaretto.
Chocolate Coffee Stout Beer Cookies
It’s not a proper summer barbecue without beer, and it’s not a proper Twisted Truffles blog post without chocolate. The coffee and the white chocolate chips in these cookies are pretty killer too.
Patriotic Panna Cotta Shooters
Coconut and a zippy orange flavor from blue curaçao make this panna cotta = dolce vita.
Sugar Cookie Pudding Shots
Apparently jello shots are extremely patriotic because they make another appearance here… this time with though, amped up with vanilla vodka, amaretto liqueur and super cute sugar cookie garnishes.
Hot Buttered Rum Apple Pie
What’s more American than apple pie? Hot buttered rum apple pie. FTW.
