What Is a Starburst Shot?

A Pink Starburst shot is an alcoholic beverage made with vanilla-flavored vodka, sweet and sour, and watermelon Schnapps liqueur. The three ingredients are poured into a cocktail shaker glass, shaken and then poured into 1-ounce shot glasses.

A variation of the shot includes infusing watermelon-flavored Starburst candies into unflavored vodka. Approximately five candies are placed into the bottom of a glass or plastic jar. About 8 ounces of vodka is added to the jar, which is sealed and left out at room temperature for about 24 hours. The jar is then shaken, strained and the liquid is used as a Starburst vodka shot.
