These make for the perfect girl’s night or bachelorette party shooter!

The Blue Hooter by Drink Lab is another easy shooter recipe, but this one has a lower alcohol content, so you can have more! The Blue Hooter consists of two ingredients, just watermelon pucker and grape schnapps which means there is hardly any prep time.
This is also one of those recipes for those who don’t like the taste of liquor because all you’ll taste with this one is the fruit!
Red-Headed Stepchild Recipe
Though this Red-Headed Stepchild recipe by Crystal Mixer is technically a mixed drink, it can be made into a shooter just by keeping the ratios but in a lower volume.

Mexican Candy Shot
You might have never thought that one of your favorite shooter or cocktail recipes would contain hot sauce, but this Mexican Candy Shot by Home Cooked Harvest could just change your mind.

Magic Pixie Cocktail
