Introduction: 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

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

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?

    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.

    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

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

    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

    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
