Melon rum shooters, a stainless steel shaker, and some ice cubes sound tempting enough. A shot topped with whipped cream looks absolutely enthralling. Scooby Doo snack shots offer both!
Origin of Scooby Snack Shots
To be honest, I don’t know. I don’t think anyone does, either. All I know is that the name refers to Scooby Doo, and who doesn’t love that fun dog?
If you ask around, you’ll soon find no one knows the exact origins of this drink, but that’s one of the things that makes the Scooby snack shot so fun.
What Is a Scooby Snack Shot?
Scooby snack shots are a specific sweet alcoholic drink. The recipe includes delicious ingredients, such as coconut rum, pineapple juice, melon rum shooters, and whipped cream if you want.
You can serve Scooby snack shots in shot glasses and make a competition with your friends to see who can solve the mystery faster… or get drunk quicker. Regardless of which one you choose, it’s bound to be fun.
How to Make a Scooby Snack Shot
A Scooby snack shot is one of the easiest recipes to make. You’ll need a few sweet ingredients, so get your teeth ready for that.
Melon liqueur, creme de banana, pineapple juice, coconut rum, and whipped cream are a few of the ingredients you’ll use. However, to make a Scooby snack shot, you’ll also need a cocktail shaker, a shot glass, and a mystery machine van. Just kidding.
There are a few variations of the regular Scooby snack shot. It’s up to you whether you want to stay with the traditional, delicious creamy pineapple recipe or change it up.
Turn the Snack Shot into a Drink
If you’d rather have a drink than multiple Scooby snack shots, fear not. I got you. Add an extra ounce of juice, and incorporate some more alcohol into the mix as well. Don’t be gentle with the melon liqueur.
After that, simply put it all inside the shaker, shake it up, and serve it in a fancy glass instead of a shot glass. Put some whipped cream on top if you want to pass off as an experienced bartender.
Blue Scooby Snack Shot
You can make blue Scooby snack shots instead of yellow ones if you want. Instead of using melon liqueur, get some blue curacao.
Scooby snack shots are quick and easy recipes, and they’re an ideal option to try if you want to offer tropical drinks to your guests.
Although making Scooby snack shots is a straightforward process, there are a few things you should remember to make sure they’re fantastic.
You shouldn’t put whipped cream on the shot glass, for example, until after serving the shot. If you do, it’ll melt.
Moreover, you can alter this tropical shot recipe. Add more of that delicious creamy pineapple if you’re a sweet tooth, or put some melon rum shooters if you want to go heavy on the alcohol. It’s up to you!
Lastly, for a rich and creamy tropical flavor, you can add some banana liqueur or creme. It’ll give your Scooby snack shots a completely different vibe!
Shot recipes don’t have to be rigid at all. You can do what you feel is best, as long as it tastes good! If you’re up for something more potent, our mini beer shot recipe will get the party started.
Many people love the taste of delicious creamy pineapple Scooby snack shots because they know this is a sweet, refreshing shooter. Others prefer margaritas – I myself don’t judge!
Thus, there are some substitutions you can try out. You can make a dairy-free option if you want. Remove the heavy cream completely, or use full-fat coconut milk.
A mocktail version of Scooby snack shots is also possible. Instead of using rum, add coconut cream, and put melon puree instead of melon liquor.
If you do this, your Scooby snack shots will probably be thicker. However, they’ll be sweeter and tastier as well!
Should You Add Whipped Cream?
Anytime you read the question ‘should you incorporate whipped cream?’ my answer will be yes. I don’t think there’s a recipe in the world that whipped cream can’t make better.
I take that back. I probably wouldn’t want it on my fries.
However, I do love it in my Scooby snack shots. Whipped cream is the perfect garnishing because it takes out the flavor of the delicious creamy pineapple, makes the shot glass look pretty, and allows the drink to be sweeter!
What to Do if You Don’t Have a Cocktail Shaker
Using a cocktail shaker would be better because you’ll be able to properly mix the snack shot ingredients.
However, if you don’t have one, you can use a blender or any cup with a lid.
Can You Make it Alcohol-free?
Yes! As I mentioned before, there is a mocktail version of the snack shot. You won’t get drunk on alcohol, but you probably will on sweetness. Amazing!
How Many Calories Does it Have?
There are 98 calories per shot glass when you drink this.
Grab your melon rum shooters and cocktail glass and get started! Scooby shots are a fantastic addition to Halloween parties or just a boring Sunday. If you’re looking for a shot during the winter season, give the polar bear shot a try!
A shot topped with whipped cream can completely change your mood, and even more so if it’s bright green like Shaggy’s shirt and served in an old-fashioned glass. Get ready for your next party by making this fantastic drink!
