Here are 3 quick and easy tips to keep in mind when making your own pineapple upside down cake shots:

Pineapple Upside Down Cake Shot

  • Different types of flavored vodka are fine. This recipe calls for using vanilla vodka but it’s totally fine to use plain vodka (or even another type of flavored vodka) as a substitute when making this recipe.
  • As is replacing the vodka altogether. While this shot is traditionally made with vodka, there’s nothing stopping you from swapping it out and using an option like amaretto or even Malibu rum, which can add even more of a delightful twist to the shot.
  • It’s okay to forget the cherry on top. Many people like to garish their pineapple upside down cake shots with maraschino cherry and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, some people find that it simply gets in the way of taking the shot so it’s perfectly fine to skip the garnishings.
