You’ve probably already started to hear commercials about fall on TV and the radio – but we’re not ready to let go of summer just yet! There’s still a whole month left before the days start to cool off and college kicks off again. Why not enjoy the last few weeks of summer without worrying about the fact that fall is just around the corner? We’ve got just the thing to keep your mind in summer mode: more summery shots! The end of summer is a great time to throw fun parties and spend a few more days by the pool with friends, drink in hand and sun overhead!
Fun Summer Shots (or drinks)
- Blue Hawaii – Nothing says summer like the idea of palm trees and tropical blue waters. This shot is a tribute to all that is summer
o 1 part vodka
o 1 part rum
o 1 part blue curacao
o Splash sour mix
o Pineapple juice
o To make: Mix the first 3 ingredients together in a shaker over ice. Shake and pour into glasses. Top with pineapple juice and a cherry for garnish.
- Bomb Pop Shot – Just because the Fourth of July has passed doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy patriotic shots. These are fun to layer.
o 1 part lemon lime soda
o 1 part lemon vodka
o 2 parts blue curacao
o 2 parts grenadine
o To make: Mix sprite and vodka together in shaker over ice. Pour into glass. Use a spoon to carefully layer the blue curacao on top of the sprite/vodka layer. Pour grenadine in along the side of the shot glass (careful not to mix it) to get a waterfall effect. The grenadine should sink to the bottom of the glass.
- Orange Creamscicle Shot – If you’re a fan of orange crush (or the classic orange creamscicle ice cream treat), you’ll love this shot.
o 1 part vanilla flavored vodka
o ½ part triple sec
o 2 parts orange juice
o 2 parts half and half
o To make: This one is pretty simple. Mix all ingredients in a shaker over ice, shake, and pour!
