Red White & Blue Shooter
2.5 shots out of 5
Happy Memorial Day to those of you who live in the USA. What a well needed holiday weekend that was! My boys only have 2 weeks of school left and this was a good break from the crazy last few weeks we've been having!
I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5. Filling my shot glass up 1/3 of the way with grenadine had me not wanting to try this, because I thought it would taste too grenadiney-syrupy. I actually tasted the peach schnapps and blue curacao more then the grenadine though, I must say. This shot wasn't horrible at all. It wasn't my favorite cocktail in the world either......it just laid somewhere in between. I tried my "hardest" to layer this one, I really did!! All of the different versions I saw of this shot had the perfect layers in them......not mine. My grenadine went well (could you imagine if it didn't? Then I'd really suck at this), then came the peach schnapps........yea, not so well.......but the blue curacao floated on top just fine. Oh well......maybe after another 103 days I'll get the hang of this....
Here is the recipe for Red White & Blue Shooter:
- 1/3 shot blue curacao
- 1/3 shot peach schnapps
- 1/3 shot grenadine
In a shot glass pour your grenadine, then over the back of a spoon tilted down toward the side of the shot glass, slowly pour your peach schnapps. Again on the back of that same spoon held the same way, pour your blue curacao slowly.
