Jelly Bean (shooter)


Shot Glass

Glass Guide- Shot Glass

This Jelly Bean shooter is more of an acquired taste. It closely resembles the licorice-flavored black jelly bean due to the use of an anise-flavored liqueur. The distinct flavor is one that you either love or hate. The key to pulling off this shooter is to layer the ingredients on top of each other for a striped effect.


  • 1/2 ounce blackberry brandy or grenadine
  • 1/2 ounce anisette or sambuca
  • 1/2 ounce Southern Comfort


  1. Pour the brandy or grenadine into a shot glass.
  2. Float the sambuca or anisette on top of the first layer.
  3. Float the Southern Comfort on top of the second layer.
