Sweet, fruity shot tasting like the candy.


  • 1 oz Vanilla Vodka
  • 1 oz Watermelon Pucker
  • 1 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
  • Pink Sugar optional for garnish
  • Pink Starburst optional for garnish


  • Edge the shot glasses with corn syrup and pink sugar. This will give the shot glasses a pink, sparkly rim that makes the cocktail even more festive.
  • Combine 1 oz. of vanilla vodka, 1 oz. of watermelon pucker, and 1 oz. of sweet and sour mix in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  • Shake the cocktail shaker vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. This will ensure that the ingredients are well mixed and chilled.
  • Strain the cocktail into the prepared shot glasses. Be careful not to spill any of the liquid as you pour.
  • Optional: Garnish each shot with a small piece of Pink Starburst candy. This will add an extra pop of color and sweetness to the cocktail. Serve and enjoy!
