A little bit dessert a little bit Irish whiskey shot! What do you think? New Christmas party favorite?

This cherry cheesecake whiskey shots recipe has the IrishCentral crew divided. A cherry cheesecake? Yes, please. A whiskey shot? Sure… But together we’re just not that sure. However, so far, the video has over 4 million views on Cooking Panda’s Facebook page so we figured it must be floating someone’s boat.

Cherry cheesecake whiskey shots recipe

Prep time: 30 minutes.

Serves 20


- 1 cup cherry pie filling, store-bought or homemade

- 2 ounces Disaronno

- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs

- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

- 1/3 cup brown sugar

- 1/3 cup butter, melted

- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened

- 1 tablespoon lemon juice

- 1 cup heavy cream

- 1/3 cup whiskey (we leave this up to you but obviously go for Tullamore D.E.W, Jameson or something Irish!)

1/4 cup sugar

- Maraschino cherries, for garnish (optional)


- Add Disaronno to the cherry pie filling. Stir and set aside.

- In a bowl, add graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter. Mix to combine.

- In either a food processor or in a bowl with a whisk, combine cream cheese and lemon juice. Add heavy cream, Irish whiskey, and sugar. Mix until thick and fully combined.

- In small shot glasses, layer your cheesecakes. First, a layer of graham cracker crust, then the cheesecake filling and finally, the cherry pie filling. If desired, top with 1 maraschino cherry.

- Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
