Prepare The Crust

Take a mixing bowl and add the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter and stir thoroughly until all the crumbs are evenly coated with the butter. Next, spoon about 1 tablespoon of the prepared crumb mixture into the bottom of each shot glass or serving container. Gently press the crumbs down with the back of a spoon or your fingers in order to create an even layer at the bottom of every glass. You must ensure that the crust is compact and almost solid as this will be the base of your Mango-Lime Cheesecake Shot.

Make The Cheesecake Filling

In a large mixing bowl, take the softened cream cheese and beat it until it’s velvety smooth and creamy using a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Slowly add in the powdered sugar until it’s been fully incorporated into the mix. Next, mix in the mango or citrus-flavoured liqueur, lime zest, lime juice, and mango puree until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined and have a smooth consistency. 

Layering The Cheesecake Shots

You can either spoon or pipe in the prepared cheesecake filling over the graham cracker crust that you’ve secured in each shot glass, filling each shot glass to about two-thirds. Next, with the back of a spoon or small spatula, smoothen the tops of your cheesecake filling to create an even surface. 

Chill and Garnish

Take your filled shot glasses and chill them in the refrigerator till the cheesecake filling is nice and firm or for a minimum of 1 hour.
