This shooter not only looks great, but it tastes so good and it is so refreshing, that you will want to drink it like a fine cocktail.* For an even better experience, chill your shot glasses in the freezer before serving.

Remember, there is no single right way to make a cocktail. Feel free to experiment and adjust my recipes to your own taste and liking. The key is to have fun while doing it. Cheers!

Hi, I'm Scott Gardner, your mindful mixologist. While I am not a professional bartender, I have made well over two hundred different and unique cocktails, and invented over fifteen original drinks, including my famous European Vacation, Muzetta's Waltz, and The Cherry Bella, all of which can be found in my book, Lock it, Flip it, Kick it & Shake!

Besides shaking, stirring, and sipping, I also enjoy golfing, reading, and writing. My wife and I both love animals and we have recently gotten into birding, which is a fun and rewarding hobby. And our favorite birds... The Philadelphia Eagles, of course! Go Birds!
