ALLIGATOR TAIL SHOT

Makes 1

INGREDIENTS

1 small splash of grenadine

⅔ oz. melon liqueur

⅓ oz. Jägermeister

DIRECTIONS

You will need a spoon to layer the liquids so they float in the glass. Turn the spoon upside down and place it in the middle of the glass so it is touching the side, then gently pour the liquid on top of the spoon.

First, add the grenadine, and then add the melon liqueur and Jägermeister in that order.
