Ingredients

Equipment

  • Shot Glass
  • Bar spoon or pourer for layering

Instructions

Prepare Your Glass:

  • Start by chilling the shot glass in the freezer if possible. This helps the layers stay distinct by reducing the amount of mixing that occurs when the liquids contact each other.

Layer the First Ingredient:

  • Pour the iced Blue Curacao into the bottom of the shot glass. This liqueur forms the first layer and should fill half of the glass. Iced Blue Curacao is chosen for its vibrant blue color, mimicking Wolverine’s rugged demeanor and the colors of his X-Men uniform.

Add the Second Layer:

  • Carefully layer the Crème de Banane over the Blue Curacao. To do this effectively, pour slowly over the back of a bar spoon placed just above the surface of the Blue Curacao. The density of the Crème de Banane allows it to sit on top of the Blue Curacao without mixing, creating a striking contrast.

Serve Immediately:

  • Serve the shot immediately after preparation to maintain the integrity of the layers. The visual effect of the blue and yellow layers is not only a nod to Wolverine’s appearance but also makes for a dramatic presentation.

Notes

Tips for Perfect Layering:
Ensure that both liqueurs are well chilled; this increases their density and makes layering easier.
Pouring slowly and steadily is key to achieving well-defined layers. Practice patience and control when adding the Crème de Banane.
The Wolverine Shot is perfect for fans of the X-Men series and makes a great talking point at parties. It’s a simple yet effective way to bring a bit of comic book flair to your cocktail offerings. Enjoy this shot as a tribute to Wolverine’s fierce and fiery spirit, and remember to drink responsibly!
