The Firecracker shooter is perfect for you Fourth of July parties. It's an intense shot of tequila, Goldshlager and Rumple Minze; a mix that is highly intoxicating but tasty.

Yes, you could use different cinnamon and peppermint schnapps than what the recipe calls for, however these two liqueurs serve a purpose. The Goldschlager adds those beautiful gold flakes that simulate a blown firecracker and the Rumple Minze is there because it adds that intense 100-proof peppermint others don't have.
