Mexican Flag Shot Ingredients
It’s all about the layering. A layered shot is a drink that has two or more layers of liquor.
The layering process begins by pouring the first ingredient into the shot glass then carefully layering another spirit on top with no spillage between them so they can’t mix together.
Repeat this process until you have reached your desired height. I use a bartender spoon to help with this part of the pouring process but you can use a teaspoon and some even use the side of a butter knife.
Here are the Mexican Flag Shot Ingredients you will need.
- Melon Liqueur
- Tequila ( I used 1800 Tequila which is my favorite).
The great thing about this shot is all you need are shot glasses.

Step 3: Third and last layer
Slowly pour the tequila, again using a bartender spoon to assist.
