The Scooby Snack Shot is a fun and playful cocktail that gained popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It is named after the famous Scooby-Doo cartoon, where the characters would often enjoy Scooby Snacks as a treat. This cocktail is a favorite among those who enjoy sweet and creamy drinks, and it's perfect for themed parties or casual gatherings with friends.

How Scooby Snack Shot Tastes?

The Scooby Snack Shot is a sweet, creamy, and tropical cocktail with a hint of mint. The combination of melon liqueur, coconut rum, and pineapple juice creates a refreshing and fruity flavor, while the whipped cream adds a smooth and velvety texture.

Interesting facts about Scooby Snack Shot

  • The Scooby Snack Shot is often served in a shot glass, but it can also be made as a larger cocktail in a rocks glass.
  • The cocktail's green color is reminiscent of the cartoon's iconic Mystery Machine van.
  • Some variations of the Scooby Snack Shot include banana liqueur or blue curaçao for added flavor and color.


Melon Liqueur: 0.5 oz

The melon liqueur provides a sweet and fruity base that gives the Scooby Snack its distinctive tropical flavor. Too little and you might not get enough melon punch; too much and it'll overshadow the other flavors.

Coconut Rum: 0.5 oz

Coconut rum adds a creamy, tropical zest that pairs beautifully with the melon liqueur. Skimp on it and you'll lose some of the tropical vibe; overpour and the coconut could dominate.

Alex Green

Pineapple Juice: 0.5 oz

This juice brings acidity and sweetness, balancing the creaminess of the rum and liqueur. Less juice makes the drink stronger; more juice makes it too diluted.

Emma Rose

Whipped Cream: 1 oz

Topping with whipped cream isn't just for looks—it adds a rich sweetness and smooth texture. Leave it out, and you miss out on the full Scooby experience.

Mary Mitkina

Ice: 1 cup

Ice chills the ingredients, marrying the flavors without dilution since it's strained. No ice means a warm, less refreshing shot.

You can get creative with substitutions—try using a different flavored liqueur or rum to put your own spin on it. Just remember that alterations could make or break the mystery of this concoction!

In case you forgot basics how to make Scooby Snack Shot

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
