A Fun Tequila Shot For Parties

I’m ready for summer, or even just warm weather. Bring it on because I’m sick of cold, rainy days. At least the snow is over but after a while you just need some sunshine.

Tequila drinks like these Double Trouble Tropical Tequila Shots just scream party time right? We make tequila cocktails all the time, like these Lime Drop Shots – and we even use tequila to cook with like in these Tequila Lime Chicken Legs.

There’s nothing wrong with a plain tequila shot with lime, but today we’re making a shot that’s a little more creative, and tasty. So why are these shots called Double Trouble? I’ll give you two reasons. One is that there’s two types of liquor in these little shots, tequila and pineapple vodka.

The other reason for the name Double Trouble is that these shots go down so smooth and taste so good you’re going to have to make sure you’ve got a ride home…or are in walking distance.

Double Trouble Tropical Tequila Shots pack a big punch in a small glass!

How To Make These Double Trouble Tropical Tequila Shots

Start by rimming your shot glasses with Turbinado Sugar to give them a slightly sweet (but not too sweet) flavor as you sip. Turbinado sugar is similar to brown sugar in flavor, but the texture is much coarser.

Next add tequila, vodka, pineapple juice and piña colada mix to a shaker with ice. Shake well and then strain into the rimmed shot glasses. You can also make a large pitcher of these tequila shots for serving at parties. Rim the shot glasses ahead of time and then keep the pitcher chilled in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve.
