Ever wondered what the difference is between a shot and a shooter?

A shot technically just contains a single spirit. So, for instance, if you order a beer and a shot, you’re going to get a pint of ale and a shot glass filled with 30mls of whisky on the side.

A shooter is a miniature cocktail. It contains more than one ingredient, some of which may be non-alcoholic. So now you know.

We’re going to give you the recipe for a Swedish Fish Shot, which is actually a shooter that’s called a shot. I’m so glad we got the shooter/shot thing squared away right from the start.

Swedish Fish are the little red gummies that were developed for the US market in the 1950s by an enterprising Swedish candy company. They are now manufactured in both Sweden and Canada, and still have the same fruity flavour that is unique to this candy. The Swedish Fish Shot tries to mimic that taste with blackberry Schnapps, which comes closer than any other berry, even though the fish are red.

So, let’s go ahead and make a shooter that’s called a shot, that’s strawberry coloured but tastes like blackberries.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients

  • 15ml Blackberry Schnapps
  • 15ml Vodka
  • 15ml Cranberry juice
  • 1 Swedish Fish (optional)

Preparation

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add all ingredients except the actual Swedish Fish.
  3. Shake vigorously.
  4. Strain into a shot glass.
  5. Decorate by lying a Swedish Fish over the top of the glass.

Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Ice
  • Shot glass
