What you need to make the Pink Starburst Shots and Cocktails:
- Shot glasses and/or cocktail glasses
- Vanilla vodka
- Watermelon Puckers
- Sweet and Sour mix
- Garnish using corn syrup, pink sugar, and a starburst
Optional garnish ideas:
Use corn syrup to rim the edge of your shot glasses or cocktail glasses. Then dip the rims in a pink sugar mixture. This makes for a beautiful presentation. Another great idea is to add an actual pink starburst to the rim of the glass.
How to make the Starburst shots without a cocktail shaker:
If you do not have a cocktail shaker, a large glass or pitcher will work. Simply add the ice to the glass or pitcher. Then add the equal parts vodka, sweet and sour, and watermelon puckers. Use a large spoon to stir the mixture up. Strain the mixture into serving glasses or shot glasses.
Making a large batch:
If you plan on entertaining, make a large batch of the starburst shots and store it in the refrigerator. Use a pitcher with a lid, and pour equal parts of the vodka, sweet and sour, and watermelon puckers. DO NOT ADD ICE if you will not be serving immediately.
Store the pitcher in refrigerator for up to one week. When it is time to serve, pour the drinks into a shot glass, or cocktail glass with ice.
