Water Moccasin shot does not have any relation to its namesake dangerous reptile – the water moccasin Snake. Or is it?
This cocktail shot is said to have the same bite, but I reckon this is one of the smoothest drinks you can ever taste.
When it comes to its ingredients, it has Peach Schnapps, hence the trademark Peach Flavor on its final output. But since this one also adds Whiskey, you might get that bite as mentioned above.
Ok, let’s not waste time and get straight into the recipe.

Tips To Make Water Moccasin Shot
✅ Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey has been traditionally used in this Cocktail shot. However, if you do not have one, you may use any other quality blended whiskey in order to have a good taste.
✅ For best results, you may use Pre-Chilled ingredients like the Peach Schnapps.
Variations Of Water Moccasin Shot
There aren’t any particular variants to this cocktail shot, but the way you prepare it can be different. Instead of Sweet and Sour mix, you may choose to use Simple syrup and fresh lime juice.
But remember, fresh Lime Juice adds more tanginess to the drink.
On the other hand, you can also replace this with Pineapple juice if you would like to. In this case, you can also add Orange juice to the mix and get more innovative.
The Water Moccasin Shot is dangerous as the Snake with the same name, but this does have a bite which is expected out of Peach Schnapps.
A great drink to have in your house parties, especially for outdoor parties in the summer. For sure, you’ll enjoy the drink.
