Introduction: Warhead Sour Candy Shooter

Picture of Warhead Sour Candy Shooter

One of my favorite candies as a kid (and adolescent) were all sorts of crazy sour ones which were always great for dares. Being an "adult", dares can be a bit more interesting and involve booze, so here's a fun shot inspired by Warheads, the sweet delicious hard candy with a face-imploding sour coating.

No worries - it's good and quite a lot of fun!

And there's a kid-friendly version!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

You will need the following:

  • Lemon juice or lime juice
  • Blue curacao

Note: You can substitute grenadine for blue curacao to make this kid-friendly.

Step 2: The Build

Picture of The Build

In a 2 oz shooter glass, fill roughly two-thirds with blue curacao.

Note: If you want more sour action, pour less.

Carefully float lime or lemon juice by pouring on the side of the glass slowly.

Note: A squeeze bottle helps.

Sip the juice until you can no longer handle it and then shoot the rest!

Do you have any idea how I could convert this into a jello shot?

What is grenadine?

bettina-sisr (author)TomJ42015-01-19

it's what Shirley Temples are made of (7up and Grenadine) It's a very sweet cherry like syrup made to mix into drinks. You can make your own which is much better, and some people use the liquid in a jar of Maraschino cherries as a substitute as well.

"the atomic pucker"

That's a great name if you use Puckers in the shot! :)

oh also the puckers are the same alcohol content of 30 proof/15% so the layering stays the same

AngryRedhead (author)moonshine882014-12-26

Puckers also has a high sugar content which helps. :)

tried it then tried it with an assortment of pucker schnapps and WOW all I can say is AWESOME! I will defiantly push these in my bar for guests who want sweet yet sour. great idea thanks a ton

What a wonderful color! I definitely want to try this!

Thanks! If you try it, let me know what you think. :)

This is something i intend to make for a new years party. thanks much.

Yay! Let me know how it works out. :D

Oh yum! I love sour and I love alcohol and it's pretty!

Thanks! I chose the blue curacao specifically because of its density, color, and flavor. I'm sure this can be done with Midori, but melon just doesn't seem quite right for a warhead candy. :P

eeek, my taste buds are already wincing! this is a great recipe :)

AngryRedhead (author)peppypickle2014-12-22

It's not that bad - blue curacao is super sweet. :)

But you probably don't want to do more than one in a night. :P
