Tips To Make Starburst Shot

You can use a Vanilla Vodka and if not found, you can still use a plain vodka and add some Vanilla essences. This actually adds up to the final candy-like flavor.

There is actually an alternative to this that you can try out – use starburst infused Vodka. To do this, you have to drop in a few starburst candies in a bottle of plain vodka. And leave it untouched for a few days until the infusion is complete.

For garnish, you can still rim the shot glasses with pink sugar which adds beauty to the overall drink.

Variations Of Starburst Shot

You can make this shot drink as a regular cocktail drink or a martini just by serving them in different types of glasses.

Apart from that, there is another variation to the drink where you mix Plain Vodka with raspberry lemonade and Grapefruit Soda.

Also, the cocktail version of Pink Starburst drink includes Lemon Lime Soda to be added at the final stage to give you the fizz.
