Love love love, and my first thoughts were "okay okay enough with the outlandish flavors". Well as a bartender, I fill in at two different restaurant lounges, I have been hearing it all the past few flavored liquor fueled years. The bar manager made a mistake in the order and instead of ordering 2 bottles of this and the fluffy marshmallow flavor, we ended up with 2 cases. Now the part I adore about being a " mixologist " is when opportunities present themselves to use my creativity. I was told to come up with a shooter and a drink using both of those Smirnoff Vodka flavors. I do love the beautiful bottles, and writing in metallic colors, brilliant marketing strategy. All those Smirnoff flavored vodka bottles seduce us with the beautiful writing and colors, they make our eyes tell our mouths that the whole experience will be extremely satisfying on many levels.
So I came up with "ROOT BEER SHOOTERS AND DRINKS" for $3.50 (half off)!!!
The shooter was 3/4oz Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow. 3/4oz Smirnoff Whipped Cream Smirnoff Vodka. Pour over ice in martini shaker, add a couple squirts of root beer from gun, shake a few times and put into shot glass, float half&half.
