Ingredients for Scooby Snack Shot 

A Scooby Snack Shot is a layered shot typically served in a shot glass. It is made with different spirits and liqueurs, giving it a sweet and fruity flavour. The ingredients for a classic Scooby Snack Shot typically include:

1. Coconut Rum 

Coconut rum is a staple for sweet, tropical cocktails and shots. Malibu makes the original coconut liqueur and is one of the easiest brands to find in most stores. Other tasty options include Captain Morgan or CocoMania.

2. Melon liqueur

This key ingredient gives the Scooby Snack Shot it is distinctive neon green colouring. Popular options include Midori or DeKuyper.

3. Pineapple juice

Balance out the shot with a splash of sweet, tropical pineapple juice. Better options are Dole, Lakewood, or Langers. These can be found in most grocery stores.

4. Heavy Cream

A dollop of this ingredient is needed to transform this shot into a rich, creamy sensation! Heavy cream is also known as whipping cream or Chantilly cream.

5. Whipped Cream and Pineapple Chunks

Add this for garnish.

To create the layered effect, the ingredients are carefully poured into the shot glass in a specific order. The Midori melon liqueur is first poured into the glass, followed by pineapple juice, Malibu coconut rum, and cream of coconut. The result is a colourful and delicious shot that will impress your guests.
