Fun to make and fun to eat – whip up a batch of this giggly treats for your next party.


  • 2 cups Cheerwine
  • 1 cup white rum
  • 1/2 cup triple sec
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • 5 packets (10 oz.) unflavored gelatin
  • Sugar sprinkles for garnish


Combine rum, triple sec, and lemon juice in large bowl. Slowly sprinkle in the gelatin, stirring constantly. Allow the gelatin to bloom for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile combine water, sugar, and lemon zest in a medium pot, bring to a boil, then reduce to low simmer for 10 minutes.

Strain the solids from the syrup and return the syrup to heat along with the Cheerwine. Bring to a boil then remove from heat.

Pour the hot Cheerwine mixture into the bowl with the bloomed gelatin. Mix thoroughly and ensure all gelatin is dissolved.

Pour onto a sheet pan for cookie cutter shapes, into individual molds, or into ice cube trays.

However you choose to shape your Cheerwiggles, set them for at least one hour in the fridge or until jiggly. Makes 24 shots.
