Shooters add fun to any celebration, whether you enjoy them at home or at your favorite bar. Rum shots, in particular, are usually sweet and easy to drink. Many of them are tropical treats tasty enough to forget the amount of alcohol in these shots.
For people who like sweet drinks, there are many options for rum shots, including some shooters that double as dessert!
While tropical flavors are the norm, they aren’t the only option! Try some of these shots to find your favorite!
Blue Curacao gives this shot its color while adding an orange flavor that blends well with the coconut rum.
Pineapple juice adds sweet citrus notes, which, in addition to the Creme de Banana, creates the perfect tropical combination. If you want to add a creamy element to this sweet rum shot top it with whipped cream.
One of the most popular rum shots, especially for celebrations, these fruity shooters have a perfect mix of sweetness and citrus.
Strawberries are the star of these shots, that when combined with lime juice, have a pleasantly tart taste. Simple syrup sweetens the shooter, which is added at the same time as your favorite light rum.
Whether you’re looking for something fun and festive or a simply layered but decadent shooter, when it comes to rum shots, there’s an option for everyone.
Try the sweet tropical options, sample one of the boozier choices, or try a shot that doubles as dessert!

I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.
In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
