The charms of Scooby snack drink are not known to me. There are hardly few who actually make the drink at home. But when it comes to celebration, Scooby snack drink is greatly enjoyed for its creamy and filling taste.
The drink is not just for random parties, but it goes well for all formal events wedding’s receptions, birthdays, weekend night dinners, etc. Last year I happened to attend my cousin’s wedding, and there we all had the delicious Scooby snack mix drinks and the Scooby shots.
I could not help asking about the making of this drink. The recipe I found was pretty simple and easy to make. Today I somehow recalled that experience and instantly planned to share with you all.
The Scooby Doo Pa Pa Shots!
It was originally called Scooby Doo Pa Pa shots, but now we know it as Scooby snack shots. We will get to the name later. Right now, let’s just concentrate on the delicious ingredients.
It is made out of coconut rum, melon liqueurs, pineapple juice, crème de banana and whipped cream on top. The blend of these ingredients come out pretty strong and refreshing. Pineapple juice makes it a perfect tropical cocktail and a good choice for summers.
The drink is quite famous in Mexico and around the Caribbean. The whipped cream on top of the drink makes it more tempting and add a few bunches of extra calories which are great to boost up your energy levels while partying.
Most of the ingredients in the drink are so basic that you will find at any other store, like cream and pineapple juice. Remaining here are also easily available, but you need to make sure you are getting the right product. So here is a some about the two:
Coconut rum: Malibu is the best choice if you want to add a quality coconut rum to your drink. That does not exclude other brands, but I would always prefer Malibu.
Unlike ordinary rum, this one is flavored with coconut. So, it has a mildly sweet flavor with a creamy coconut touch. It is 21 percent alcohol, so the amount is perfect for the Scooby drink. Those of you who do not like that coconutty taste can go with other variety of rum. So next time you think of making a drink, consider making a Scooby snack shoot with Malibu.
Melon Liqueurs: the nice green color Scooby snack shots has is all because of this refreshing liqueur. For me, Midori melon liqueurs are the best choice to make a nice glass of the Scooby shots. It is a sweet and bright green colored liquid which is manufactured out of muskmelon flavor.
As the liqueur is too sweet, it is never taken directly and always added to the drinks with the combination of other different liquids. It is mass produced and largely sold in every part of the world, so it won’t give you much trouble to find a nice bottle of Midori melon liqueur. And even if you do, try some other brand for a change.
Crème de Banana: it is a banana flavored liqueur which is commonly used in a number of drinks and also in cooking desserts or savory meals. Yellow bird drinks are flavored using crème de banana. It has a mild fruity flavor which goes perfectly with a drink like Scooby drink.
Let’s get back to the name of the drink.
‘Scooby Doo’ about this drink is not something we can leave unnoticed. The concoction looks like the Scooby mystery van from the classic Scooby Doo series.
The creamy green color of the drink with the white whipped cream topping will take you to the memory’s mystery-ridden episodes of the cartoons. Other than the color, there is nothing Scooby about the drink. Though the feel of it seems like it. since these drinks can be served as a perfect in-between meal drink, it is called snack shots. a small serving is enough to boost up your energy levels.
If you are not into sweet drinks, then these Scooby shots are not your cup of tea. Its taste is sweeter than any other liquor you usually take for drinks. Same is true for the people who don’t like the taste of pineapple, watermelon, banana, and coconut; they would not certainly like this shot.
The blend of these liquors would also put you off if you are not melon or coconut fan. You may go by skipping some secondary ingredients, but without coconut rum or some melon liqueur, there are no Scooby snacks shots.
Just a little tidbit!
Those of you who are lactose intolerant should skip out the whipped cream from the recipe. The cream is dairy, and all dairy products are full of lactose, so people who could not just digest them should now add any part of whipped cream at all.
Sure, you can go for non-dairy creams, like coconut cream, etc. Dairy free creams are readily available in the markets, and they are great to add somewhat similar flavors to the shot. In fact, the drink becomes even healthier with dairy-free cream.
It is also a great option for people trying to cut down their caloric intake.
Instead of replacing the whipped cream topping you can simply go by not adding it at all. The quicker and the simpler the recipe will become than. Whipping cream and top the drinks is a messy task, so it would be a big help if you just skip it completely. There are other things that can be used as a garnish, like pineapple slices, or coat the glass rim with coconut shreds.
If you’re making a Scooby shot yourself, then make sure it’s sufficiently chilled. Remember that it is not a room temperature drink. This drink is not a fit for winter rather it is perfect for tropical regions and the climate of such places. It is a summer drink and works out perfectly then.
But if you are looking something just for a change on a snowy night, then this can be it. Or the Scooby snack mixed drinks are also quite popular for every season. Mix it with a bottle of fruity schnapps or flavored liqueur.
If you ask for a Scooby Snack shot at a bar, they will probably make it, but they might not know how. Whipped cream is not always added to the drinks out there. So, make sure to name the ingredients if someone out there has any confusion about the drink.
Not at every bar or at every place this drink is known by this name.
it is often available with different names. So, consider the ingredients first and then make your order. Same is true for the ingredients used in the drink. Not all liquor stores sell the melon liqueur or the rest with same name and brand, just read into the labels and match the characteristics I discussed above.
A Scooby Snack drink is booze full of tropical fruity fun, from its color to its sweetness. Make it at home or outdoor or just order it to set the mood right for full blow of fun and enjoy a vacation like evening.
Enough with the talking, let’s get straight to your recipe. I have already discussed much the combination and the different ingredients used in the drink, but without a known proportion of the ingredients, it will not turn out to be as perfect.
Snow Capped Scooby Snack Shot Recipe
Scooby shots are a basic mix of liquor. Once you get your hand on the ingredients and the variety of the liquor it requires, it will be a matter of seconds to have a pitcher full of the drink. Allow it to chill well then top it up with whipped cream and serve immediately.
Suitable fresh fruits are great for garnish including pineapple slices etc. or thread a little toothpick stick with cubed fruits, including pineapple, kiwi, cherries, mangoes and place the sticks on top of each glass to serve along. Else the basic drink is just fine to have the fun.
Here are all the Scooby snack shoot ingredients.
- 1⁄2-ounce Malibu coconut rum
- 1⁄2-ounce creme de banana
- 1⁄2-ounce Midori melon liqueur
- 1⁄2-ounce pineapple juice
- 1 1⁄2 ounces whipped cream
Take a bowl or a stainless-steel shaker and start making the drink. A shaker is probably a good choice when it comes to making this drink. I keep a liquor shaker at home now. it is of great help when you often need to make drinks for home parties.
First, add rum to the container then pour in pineapple juice, melon liqueur, and crème de banana. I almost forget something, that is ice! Add every ingredient after adding ice to the shake.
We are now left with whipped cream. Well, there are two ways to serve it. either shake all the liquids together and then serve the drink with whipped cream on top. Or you can add the cream before shaking.
I like the first idea better, as it gives a dreamy and creamy garnish to every glass of Scooby shots. but the taste remains the same. Now you can enjoy your little energy booster.
Make sure to chill it well before serving.
This half ounce recipe is perfect for a single serving or for as many as four servings. That depends on the amount you are consuming the drink. Usually, a small shot glass is enough to serve for a single session. A single serving can provide you 203 calories.
Now you know why it is called a snack shot. There are as many calories as any other snack that we take in routine. If you are using the whipped cream in the recipe than the amount of fat will amount to 18% of the total nutrients, whereas is cholesterol accounts for 14 percent. Carbohydrates are only five percent in there. The sweetness of the drink does tell you about the 13 grams of sugars it has.
Spread the charms of this amazing drink with everyone. Scooby snack shots are indeed an easy way to revitalize yourself while partying hard or celebrating up to the fullest. we came across a number of ingredients that are rich in taste and nutrients. My personal favorite is obviously melon liqueur, and you will also the feel of it, as it takes you to the next level of freshness.
I specifically shared this recipe, because its too delicious and is completely effortless. Minutes of investment will end up giving you a pretty invigorating drink in itself. It is best to serve big families and group of folks.
