What does it taste like?
With pineapple juice, coconut infused rum, and banana liqueur it tilts toward the sweeter side of shots, especially if you add the whipped cream. The most distinctive flavor and color comes from the Melon Liquor.
You won’t mind these Scooby Snack Shots at all, they’re some of the best pineapple and melon shooters around.
The origin of the drink’s name is unknown but my hunch is it was created by a bartender who was a fan of the Scooby Doo television series. The green color of the shot is reminiscent of Shaggy’s green shirt or the green on The Mystery Machine van that Shaggy, Scooby, Velma, Daphne, and Fred rode around in.
The scooby snack shot is a surprisingly popular shot. It would be great for Halloween parties but given its tropical flavors and cool color it is also a year-round favorite based on search volume trends.
The “Scooby Snack” shot is a cocktail that is typically made with a combination of vodka, pineapple juice, and coconut cream or coconut liqueur. The ingredients are mixed together and served in a shot glass. The drink is often garnished with a slice of pineapple or a cherry.
The “Scooby Snack” shot gets its name from the popular animated TV show “Scooby-Doo,” which features a group of teenagers who solve mysteries while traveling in a van called the Mystery Machine. The drink is not officially associated with the show and is simply named as a playful reference.
