How to Make a Smartie Drink

Save

Bars and pubs have traditionally offered beer, wine and liquor; however, many establishments are now turning to a new type of mixed drink crafted by a new type of bartender. The "mixologist" is a bartender who specializes in crafting drinks made with a variety of liquors, juices and liqueurs to create unique flavors. These drinks often taste like something else, typically a sweet fruit, candy or dessert. The Smartie drink is a shot designed to taste like the small, sweet, fruity Smarties candies.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 oz. grape schnapps
  • 2 oz. melon liqueur
  • 4 shot glasses
  • Drink shaker and strainer
  • Ice
  • Fill the drink shaker 2/3 full of ice. Place 4 shot glasses in a line on a flat surface. Chilling the shaker with ice as you prepare the shot glasses allows it to become cold enough to chill the drinks.

  • Pour 2 oz. of grape schnapps into the drink shaker.

  • Pour 2 oz. of melon liqueur into the drink shaker. Place the lid back on the drink shaker.

  • Shake to mix the grape schnapps and melon liqueur.

  • Remove the lid of the drink shaker and place the strainer on top of the shaker.

  • Pour the drink through the strainer into the shot glasses. Each glass should be filled with 1 oz. of the Smarties drink.

Tips & Warnings

  • If a drink shaker is not available, simply stir the ingredients together, remove the ice and pour into the glasses.
  • Chilling the liqueurs prior to use will eliminate the need for ice.
  • Ensure alcoholic beverages are consumed only by persons of the legal age.
