Shotgun Lou Instructions

Shotgun Lou is a popular cocktail that is both delicious and refreshing. It is a perfect drink for a hot summer day or a fun night out with friends. The cocktail gets its name from the way it is served - you will need a shotgun shell to enjoy this drink properly!

To make a Shotgun Lou, you will need a shotgun shell, vodka, orange juice, grenadine, and ice. Start by filling the shotgun shell halfway with vodka. Next, fill the shell with orange juice, leaving about 1/4 of the shell empty. Carefully pour a splash of grenadine into the shell, making sure to leave some space at the top.

Now, it's time to serve the Shotgun Lou. Hold the shell by the bottom and gently tap the top against the rim of a shot glass. This will create a small hole in the bottom of the shell, allowing the cocktail to flow into the glass. Once the cocktail starts flowing, quickly flip the shell upside down so that all the liquid pours into the shot glass.

Your Shotgun Lou is now ready to be enjoyed! Take a sip of this fruity and refreshing cocktail and savor the unique combination of flavors. The vodka provides a smooth and slightly boozy base, while the orange juice adds a zesty and citrusy note. The grenadine adds a touch of sweetness and a beautiful red color to the drink.

Keep in mind that it's important to drink responsibly and enjoy alcoholic beverages in moderation. Shotgun Lou is a fun and unique cocktail that is sure to impress your friends at your next gathering. Give it a try and enjoy!

Best served in a Old-Fashioned Glass.
