Burt Reynolds Shot

Burt Reynolds Shot Recipe

When it comes to delightful and straightforward shot recipes, the Burt Reynolds shot ranks high. Rumor has it that Butterscotch Ripple was Burt Reynolds' favorite flavor, and as a fan of butterscotch myself, I just had to give it a go.
This 2-ingredient shot delivers both sweet and spicy notes. You'll first feel the comforting warmth of spiced rum with hints of vanilla and cinnamon, followed by the luxurious sweetness of butterscotch schnapps. It's an ideal accompaniment to a Burt Reynolds movie marathon – grab some popcorn, pour a shot, and get ready for a good time.
For those unfamiliar with Burt Reynolds, he was a Hollywood icon with a legendary mustache and an infectious laugh. His films, like "Smokey & The Bandit", are still cherished by many, including my husband who can recite lines from the movie verbatim.
Experience a blend of sweet and spicy in this iconic shot, inspired by Burt Reynolds himself. The luscious butterscotch harmonizes beautifully with the warmth of spiced rum, creating a drink you're bound to adore.
Note: If you're in Canada, consider using Butterscotch Ripple for an authentic touch. Elsewhere, Butterscotch Schnapps is a close substitute.
