Blood Clot Cocktail or Shots

Introduction: Blood Clot Cocktail or Shots

About: I work at instructables by day, and turn into a stitch witch by night. follow me on instagram @jessyratfink to see what i'm working on! ^_^
The name is gross, but the drink is amazing. This is a sweet cocktail made from blueberry moonshine, triple sec, sprite, and some other lovely ingredients. In a pinch, you could use any other corn whiskey with fresh berries - just let it steep together for a while and perhaps mash some of the berries. :D This makes amazing shots too - so you can make lots of drinks from one mix.

The berries are essential though - otherwise you don't have any blood clots to pop with your teeth!

hardware needed:
  • 1.5 oz Triple Sec 
  • 3.5 oz Blueberry Moonshine (I'm using Junior Johnson's)
  • 1 oz simple syrup (combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar, bring to boil then cool)
  • 3 oz Sprite
  • 0.5 oz maraschino cherry juice
  • splash of grenadine (mostly for color, but also for awesomeness.)
  • blueberries and cherries for garnish
  • ice
If you're using moonshine, I find it's easiest to pour it from the mason jar into a measuring cup, Otherwise you'll be spilling moonshine all over the place and looking a bit tipsy before you are. It's also good to use a spoon to pull out some of the extra blueberries!

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake for 5-10 seconds and then pour into glasses! You can choose to make one large drink out of this, two small, or tons of shots.

For shots, garnish each with a blueberry. For larger drinks, use maraschino cherries and blueberries as needed. :)

Watch out - this blood clot cocktail is strong. Drink responsibly, folks. You might end up on the couch with hiccups and the room spinning around you after several "taste tests".

Special thanks to tylerratfink for coming up with this one. :D
