How to Make a Sweet Tart Shot

Sweet Tarts were one of my favorite candies growing up. Like its name, the multi-colored candies are both sweet and tart and full of flavor. Now that I can make an adult version in cocktail shot form makes me equally as happy as when I was young!

What is a Sweet Tart exactly?

In the United States, loads of children are sorting their Sweet Tart candies by color and saving their favorites for last. The red ones were mine, but so many love the blue. They are small round treats, each having a different flavor: blue – punch, red – cherry, purple – grape, yellow – lemon, and green – green apple.

What tools you need to make the Sweet Tart shot

Grab that cocktail shaker or a mason jar for this one! You’ll also need a jiggerstrainer, and shot glasses for this cocktail recipe.

I confess I use sour mix for this, both for convenience and just to get that sweet tart taste I am looking for! If it is too sour for you and you prefer sweet drinks, you can always add a little simple syrup or add a touch of lime juice or lemon juice for a bit of fresh citrus.

Southern Comfort gives Sweet Tart cocktail recipes their punch. I’ve chosen raspberry liqueur here to give it the color that I am looking for.

  • Top Tip(ple)🍸:
    • If blue Sweet Tarts were your thing and you want to make a blue sweet tart shot, then grab your Blue Curacao.
    • You can also add a touch of cranberry juice to sweeten it up a bit
    • Sloe gin can add a slight zing to the drink recipe as well.
