Jellyfish (shooter)

Is this week over yet?  

Is it Friday yet?  

Wait........I'm not ready for the weekend yet, so it can't be here already....I just REALLY need this week to be over already.  Needless to say these past 3 days have been....crazy.

Last Friday our oldest took his test at the DMV to get his permit.  


Yesterday he had his first official "behind the wheel" instruction.  Now that his first 2 hours are done, he can now drive with a licensed driver 35 or older!  

So today....he and I took our first drive.  

He "very willingly" drove me to Target, he did great!  We are slowly working towards those 50 hours of driving he and I (or my husband, my folks, his aunts/uncles) have to complete, yeay!!

I wanted to make a fun shooter today so I searched online.  

I found the same recipe for a Jellyfish shooter over and over again, so I thought I'd give it a try.  

It's a fun shooter to make and a nice quick one to drink.  I have made one similar in the past, Brain Hemorrhage, which was really good.  

This one was easier to get down because there wasn't as much of the "hanging baileys" in the middle as there was in the Brain Hemorrhage.  All in all it was a pretty yummy shooter.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is a photo of the ingredients:

Here is the recipe for a Jellyfish:

  • 1/2 ounce white creme de cacao
  • 1/2 ounce amaretto
  • 1/2 ounce Irish Cream liqueur
  • 4 drops grenadine

In a shot glass, pour in the first two ingredients.  Next layer the Irish Cream on top of them.  With a straw drip 4 drops of grenadine in the middle.

Here's to another fun shooter!

  1. I'm not much of a drinker but this looks really fun!! I may have to share it with my siblings next time we're all together.

  2. Ahh it looks so creepy! How crazy it really looks like a jellyfish. What a fun idea :-)

  3. That's awesome!! I am a former bartender and I would have loved to make these for people...maybe my next party :-)

    1. These are fun to make! Thank You for commenting!

  4. How neat. I have never heard of this before but will have to pin it for future reference. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Yum this looks Delicous. I've never heard of a jellyfish before!

  6. Thank You! Neither had I before I found it the other day. Cheers!!

  7. Congratulations to your son! Our oldest just got his permit, too. Here in PA, they need 65 hours before they can test for their license, so he is offering to drive me everywhere, lol. :-) Your cocktail looks wonderful! Thanks for linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday." I hope you can join us again this week.

    1. Thank You Lisa! Yes, here in CA he has to drive 50 hours with us and 10 of those hours have to be at night (which I think is cool). Thank you for commenting and for the link up! xoxo
