How to Make a Water Moccasin Shot
Step 1 - Add the peach schnapps, Crown Royal, Sweet and Sour, and triple sec to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until chilled.
Step 2 - Strain into a 2oz shot glass and enjoy.
If you are worried about the ice watering down your drink you can chill the ingredients and skip the ice.
This recipe can be served in two 2 oz shot glasses with a bit of space left or three 1 oz shot glasses to the top.
This drink can be poured over ice and served in a rocks glass. I will say I find it easier to drink as a shot but you can definitely enjoy it as a full cocktail. Add in a bit of pineapple juice to give this cocktail a fruity flavor.
There are multiple versions of the Water Moccasin Drink. Like many cocktails they tend to get multiple variations based on the part of the country it is made in, ingredients available, and bartenders preference.
