Pineapple Upside Down Cake Shot / Drink

     One of my favorite drinks of all time is the Pineapple Upside Down Cake. I've had it both as a shot and a drink. I primarily like it as a drink because it is so DELICIOUS that I want to savor it for as long as possible! It really tastes more like dessert with a subtle kick than drinking alcohol. I may also be partial to it because of the great memories with friends that come to mind. In leui of the new year, I thought I would share the recipe. 

For the Shot:

  • 1/2 oz pineapple juice (chilled)
  • 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
  • splash of grenadine
  1. Mix pineapple juice and vanilla vodka in a shaker with ice until chilled. Strain into shot glass.
  2. Add a splash of grenadine and let settle to the bottom. 
  3. Serve and enjoy!

For the Drink: 

  • 3 oz (1 double shot) of vanilla vodka
  • 5 to 13oz pineapple juice (chilled), depending on the size of the glass/your taste
  • splash of grenadine
  1. Fill a tall glass with ice.
  2. Mix vodka and pineapple juice in a shaker. I would suggest tasting before straining into glass to see if the drink is strong enough/too strong for your taste. Add more pineapple juice if too strong or more vodka if not strong enough. That's the beauty of mixing at home - you can mix until it tastes perfect! 
  3. Strain into glass.
  4. Add a splash of grenadine. Let it settle to the bottom.
  5. Enjoy!
