Captain America Shot

Captain IRON MAN! When I was younger and playing Captain America and the Avengers on my Sega Genesis, it was always fun to select Captain America, then choose someone right after the game announced, “Captain…” Yeah, I’m a nerd. Onwards, for America! We all know that after Cap got his Super Soldier Serum treatment from Dr. Erskine he metabolizes booze right outta his system before he can get drunk. Though, him being a bit of a Boy Scout, he never really drank in the first place. Consequently, we keep this red, white and blue shot light so you can have 50. For America.

This is a simple shot: grenadine, white chocolate liqueur and blue curaçao. Layer them in equal-ish proportions and enjoy the red, white and blue glory.

As it’s such a simple drink, try your hand at making your own grenadine. Get yourself some pomegranate juice, put it on the stove, add some sugar and reduce until it’s thick – coats the back of your spoon thickness.

The final trick is when your pour the alcohols in the shot, pour them over a spoon to help them layer and not mix together. Other than that… Captain America! USA, USA!

Oh, fine, let’s say you want not only to celebrate the good ol’ US of A, but also the amazingness that is The Avengers, that’s cool. We can help you there with a Thor’s Coffee. I promise, after a full day of celebrating, if you want to stay awake for those fireworks, you might just need the extra kick of coffee and Mjolnir to help keep you in the game.

Now, onto the Captain America Shot!
