These mischievous, flirtatious delights are perfect for those looking to add a playful twist to their cocktail game.
From tangoing with tipsy leprechauns to frolicking through minty-fresh forests, green shots are ideal for those looking for a fun night out with friends or a unique twist on a special occasion.
Let’s dive headfirst into this enchanting emerald extravaganza.
Best Green Shots
Lucky Leprechaun Shots
Made with Malibu rum, melon liqueur, and a touch of pineapple juice, the Lucky Leprechaun shot is a vibrant and festive treat with a tropical twist.
I love that it’s the perfect seasonal spirit for St. Patrick’s Day, just as spring fever starts to kick in and the weather’s finally warm enough to enjoy sipping outside.
Green Gummy Bear Shots
Unleash your inner child with the Green Gummy Bear Shot, a delectable fusion of lemon-lime soda, vodka, and melon liqueur. It’s a playful potion that embodies the nostalgic sweetness of childhood in stunning technicolor.
For a thematic finishing touch, I like to rim the glass with green sugar and garnish it with green apple gummies.
Irish Flag Shot
The Irish Flag Shot is a visual treat that blends creme de menthe, Irish cream liqueur, and Grand Marnier.
This tri-colored masterpiece, named for its similarity to the “Bratach na hÉireann,” boasts minty freshness, velvety creaminess, and zesty citrus undertones.
It’s a bit more complicated than most shake-and-serve shots if you want to pull off the layering, but the result is undeniably worth the effort.
The Emerald Shooter’s chartreuse hue makes it look more like a magical elixir than a shot, but I think it makes drinking it much more exciting!
Green Jello Shots
These wobbly, whimsical wonders transport you to a world where lime gelatin meets vodka, and the party never ends.
The delightful jiggle of each shot pairs with a tangy kick that leaves taste buds tingling. Prepare to lose yourself in a green sea of jiggly jubilation!
Green Grasshopper Shot
If you look forward to Girl Scout cookie sales as much as I do, the Grasshopper shot will change your life.
Imagine a refreshing, minty coolness with a subtle hint of chocolate, like a Thin Mint cookie liquefied. That magical taste is thanks to an inspired blend of green crème de menthe, white crème de cacao, and light cream.
The Green Fairy shot is truly enchanting! A magical blend of absinthe, melon liqueur, and peach schnapps creates a bewitching concoction that will sweep you away with mysterious anise notes, playfully mingling with fruity melon and sweet peach.
This drink is also a simple way to practice layering, and you can master it in a snap.
The sweet and sour mix and pineapple juice cut through the richness with a dollop of sweetness.
This shot will transport you to an island getaway with every sip.
Mint Chocolate Chip Shot
The Mint Chocolate Chip, a decadent dessert disguised as a shot, has a vodka base, capped off with velvety crème de menthe, white creme de cacao, and white chocolate liqueur.
This indulgent concoction evokes the nostalgic charm of a frosty mint-chip ice cream cone with a cheeky, boozy twist.
Green Beer Jello Shot
Wobble over to the wild side with these funky Green Beer Jello Shots. They’re a playful blend of tequila, your fave brewski, gelatin, sugar, and green food dye.
You can also use lime jello, which I highly recommend if Corona is your beer of choice. These jiggly gems transform a classic party staple into a whimsically hoppy adventure.
Mountain Dew Bomb Shot
The Mountain Dew Bomb Shot is an electric green concoction that combines the zingy zappiness of Mountain Dew with a daring drop of vodka and melon liqueur.
If you’re drinking with friends, it’s also a fun option for a pick-me-up party punch.
Melon Whiskey Sour Shot
With a mischievous medley of white whiskey, melon liqueur, sweet and sour mix, and heavy honeydew melon balls, the Melon Whiskey Sour Shot is a frisky, fruity garden party in a shot glass.
I’ve had great results freezing the melon before serving this shot punch-style with club soda as the base.
And there you have it, mixology mavericks a cavalcade of chartreuse concoctions to paint the town green.
Whether you’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or want a new hue to play with in your home bar repertoire, these green shots will leave your guests feeling lucky.
