Red White and Blue Shot Recipe
This past year has been a lot, to say the least! Now it is time to celebrate summer and fun with this epic shot layered with red, white, and blue layers.
We are so excited for the Fourth of July and summertime. It feels like we haven't really left the house in a while.
This layered shot is also called the Captain America Shot which I am all in for! It makes me think about interviewing Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth for the Avengers.
- Blue Curacao
Each brand of liquor will have its own density. You will need to practice with the brands you have to get them layered.
Shot Glass - We used a 2 oz shot glass for this recipe
How to make a layered Fourth of July Shot
Step 1 - Pour grenadine into the bottom of a shot glass.
Step 2 - Slowly pour Blue Curacao over the back of a spoon onto the grenadine.
Step 3 - Slowly pour the Vodka over the back of a clean spoon onto the Blue Curacao. We suggest rotating the shot glass so you are not pouring over where the Blue Curacao went in.
This red white and blue shooter works best if you don't have to move it a ton. If you move it and the flavors mix don't worry it still tastes great.
This recipe can also be made with Peach Schnapps instead of vodka. Dekuyper Peachtree Schnapps is frequently used because of the density of the liquor.
You can use drink syringes to add in the liquor if you don't like pouring over the back of a spoon.
