Our Cherry Cheesecake Shot Recipe Tastes Amazing!

This aptly named shot really does taste just like Cherry Cheesecake. So if you love cheesecake as much as I do, you’ll love this cherry cheesecake shot recipe as an after dinner primer shot or just a shooter that tastes really good. Gotta’ love shots that taste like food!

And if you’re into breakfast foods, try our Cinnamon Toast Crunch shot recipe, between these two shots you have two liquid meals ready to go.

The cherry cheesecake shot is meant to be served in a shooter glass. If you don’t have one, then just use a normal shot glass. A shooter glass is just a taller and less wide glass than a shot glass. So just use whatever you have.

This is an easy three ingredient shot to make. You’ll need a shaker and some ice, and a strainer. Then just add your ingredients, vanilla vodka, grenadine and a splash of pineapple juice.

As far as the vodka goes, any vanilla flavored vodka will do, but my preference is Absolut or Stoli Vanilla vodka. They just taste the best to me as far as vanilla vodkas go.

The recipe included here is enough for one shot. Just double or triple it for more shooters.

This red shot is a bit sweet, so don’t do too many as they may make you sick after a few. If you want to cut down on their sweetness, you can cut down on the grenadine and add a bit more pineapple juice.

Or try this recipe with cranberry juice as a replacement for the grenadine completely and add a splash of pineapple juice for a much less sweet drink.

Cherry Cheesecake Shot

Cherry Cheesecake Shot

Yield: 1 Shot
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 2 minutes

This easy cherry cheesecake shot recipe includes a vanilla vodka of your choice (I like Stoli or Absolut), grenadine and a splash of pineapple juice. This only takes a minute to make and tastes just like real cherry cheesecake.


  • 1⁄2 ounce vanilla vodka
  • 1⁄2 ounce grenadine
  • Splash of pineapple juice
  • Ice


  • Boston shaker or Pint Glass
  • Strainer


  1. Add ice to your shake - quarter full is enough.
  2. Add the vanilla vodka, grenadine and a splash of pineapple juice to shaker.
  3. Shake for a few seconds to chill drink.
  4. Pour into shot or shooter glass.
  5. Enjoy!


Optional: If you want to add a dash of pizazz to your shots, combine the voka and grenadine, but NOT the pineapple juice in the shaker. After you add the mix to the shot glass, then top off the shot with the pineapple juice. This will give you the same shot, but the top of the shot will be a lighter pinkish color that just looks more upscale.
