Sweet shot, tastes like the cake.



  • Prepare the Ingredients
  • Start by preparing your ingredients. Pour some pineapple juice into a small bowl or dish. Place some grenadine syrup into a separate dish. Make sure to have your vanilla vodka and maraschino cherries ready as well.
  • Dip the Shot Glasses
  • Take your shot glasses and dip the rims into the pineapple juice, making sure to coat the rims evenly. Then, dip the rims into the grenadine syrup, again making sure to coat them evenly. This will create a sweet and tangy rim for your shot glasses.
  • Fill the Shot Glasses
  • Fill each shot glass with one part vanilla vodka and two parts pineapple juice.
  • Finally, garnish each shot with a maraschino cherry. You can either
    place the cherry on top of the shot or let it sink to the bottom, which
    will create the "upside-down" effect.
