From caramel apple flavors and names reminiscent of your favorite Apple Jacks cereal, check out these Sour Apple Pucker shooter recipes.

Make this Washington Apple Shot by Food Lovin’ Family in just minutes. It is the perfect combination of a Canadian whisky like Crown Royal, sour apple schnapps, and a sweet splash of cranberry juice. This is one of those drinks that you’ll keep coming back to.
By Drinks Mixer
The Green River shot recipe by Drinks Mixer has melon liqueur, sour apple schnapps, and just a bit of sweet and sour mix to create a fruity shot that packs a punch at any party. Simply shake up the ingredients over ice in a cocktail shaker and pour them into your favorite shot glasses. This could also be made into a cocktail by increasing the amount of each ingredient and pouring it into a highball glass instead.
Apple Jacks is not named because it tasted like the cereal you had when you were a kid, but rather because it has apple schnapps and Jack Daniel’s, hence the “Apple Jacks” name. Combine equal parts of the Jack Daniel’s and Apple Pucker in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled and pour into a shot glass. It may seem like an odd combination, but it is absolutely delicious.
