The Santa Shot is a gorgeous little red and green layered shot that tastes like a candy cane. It’s Christmas ascetics combined with Christmas flavors, and it packs plenty of Christmas spirit. You might even want to leave one out for Santa with his cookies.
This is a great treat for parties, especially as an aperitif. If you don’t trust your layering skills (learn how to layer cocktails like a pro here) under pressure, you can pour these in advance, put them on a serving tray and leave them in the fridge to stay nice and chilled. When the times comes, just pull the serving tray out carefully and carry it in to deliver the drinks to your guests.
- 1 part grenadine syrup
- 1 part green creme de menthe
- 1 part peppermint schnapps
Pour grenadine to about 1/3 of your shot glass. Carefully layer the creme de menthe, then the peppermint schnapps.
