If you have a sweet tooth like me, then you definitely won’t be able to resist this Mexican Candy Shot. This shot is not only sweet and tasty, but it also has a kick of tequila to spice things up.

The recipe is super easy to make, and you don’t need any special skills to whip up a batch for yourself and your friends. So, let’s get started!


The ingredients you will need: To make this Mexican Candy shot, you will need a few ingredients that you can find at any local grocery store. You will need a bottle of tequila, sweet and sour mix, grenadine, and some Mexican candy like Lucas Chamoy or Pelon Pelo Rico. The candy is the most important part of this recipe as it gives the drink its unique sweet and sour taste.


  • Preparing the shot: Start by filling a shaker halfway with ice, then add 2 ounces of tequila, 2 ounces of sweet and sour mix, and 1 ounce of grenadine. Shake the mix well until the shaker feels cold to the touch. Once you’ve shaken well, add in a spoonful of Mexican candy into each shot glass.
  • Pouring your shot: You can use a strainer or just your steady hand to pour your mix over the candy and directly into your waiting shot glass. Once you pour the mix over the candy, it will start to fizz up and dissolve, creating a sweet and sour texture that works perfectly with the tequila.
  • Serving your shot: Serve these Mexican candy shots with a small spoon so that guests can mix in any remaining candy to the bottom of their glass. They’ll love the texture and the flavor mix of candy with alcohol.
  • Enjoying your shot: Take a moment to appreciate the flavors of the Mexican candy shot before drinking it all in one go. The tequila will give you an immediate punch of alcohol, while the candy will provide you with a sweet and sour aftertaste that lingers in your mouth.


You don’t have to be in Mexico to enjoy this one-of-a-kind shot. With a few simple ingredients, you can easily make this Mexican candy shot in the comfort of your own home. It’s perfect for a girls’ night or a get-together with friends, and it’ll definitely be the star of the party.
