Whether it’s Independence Day or Presidents’ Day, there’s no better way to celebrate your “Americanness” than by downing a Captain America shot. This tri-colored shooter is sure to dazzle your friends with clean layers of red, white, and blue. If you do a lot of entertaining over the summer, you should keep this Instagram-worthy shot recipe in your back pocket. 

Since hemp is now federally legal in the USA, this is also the best time to celebrate with some CBD! If you don’t mind adding some “green” to this all-American shot, feel free to drizzle a half-dropperful of Tribe CBD oil.

CBD Captain America Shot Recipe

CBD Captain America Shot Recipe

As hinted in the intro, the Captain America shot is a layered drink with red, white, and blue liquors. As with all other layered cocktails, it’s crucial to pour each spirit slowly over the back of a barspoon. This standard technique increases the odds your shot will look picture-perfect.

If you’re still struggling to get these three layers to stay put, you may want to consider experimenting with other liquor brands. Because every manufacturer is slightly different, each product may not be light enough to float. You could also experiment with swapping out crème de cacao for peach schnapps if this ingredient is giving you a hard time.

• Pour grenadine into a shot glass.
