As we near closer to the end of Election Day 2020 and all the craziness, we may need a little something to take the edge off of the nerves, relax and mellow out the anxiousness. My Election Day Shooters fit the bill very nicely! They’re pretty to look at with the layers of red, white, and blue. But they are also very sweet and pack a wallop.
WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE ELECTION DAY SHOOTERS?
Basically, you need liqueurs that are red, white, and blue. Grenadine is basically a pomegranate simple syrup without alcohol. Peach schnapps is a sweet, peach liqueur, and blue curacao is an orange-flavored liqueur.
These yummy shots would also be a great addition to your Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day celebrations.

Just when you need a mental break from Election Day stress, make yourself an Election Day Shooter! A little grenadine, some peach schnapps, and a floater of blue curacao make for a tasty stress reliever!
½ ounce grenadine
½ ounce peach schnapps
½ ounce blue curacao
Before you want to make this shooter, place the three liqueurs into the freezer and chill completely. When icy cold, the layers stay separate nicely.
When ready to serve, pour the grenadine into the bottom of a shot glass.
Next, very slowly pour the peach schnapps over the grenadine.
Wait for a moment or two to allow the liquid to settle.
Finally, pour the blue curacao on top of the peach schnapps.
