Have your cake and drink it too, because this tropical and Technicolor pineapple upside-down cake shot really takes the cake!
Preparing this shot is a piece of cake (don’t worry, that’s the last cake pun we can think of). And you don’t have to be a professional bartender to pull off a stacked shot. (But if you make these for your friends they might be so impressed that they try to tip you anyways.) All you have to do is recall the theory of specific gravity from your high school physics class. No? OK just remember this: alcohol floats, and sugar sinks — which is why you’ll end up with a red layer of grenadine on the bottom, and yellow layer of pineapple-spiked vodka on top.
The ingredients themselves are extremely simple: vanilla vodka makes the shooter taste like actual cake batter, while fresh pineapple juice and cherry grenadine give it a fruity zing.
