Yummy Gatorade Shots Variations!

Did you know there are a bunch of Gatorade shots to try? I didn’t until I started messing around with making drinks with Gatorade. Then of course I looked around to see what everyone else was doing with them and was surprised to see just about every color and flavor being used.

So being a bartender, I had to try them all to see which ones actually tasted good and which ones you should never make. Yeah, I even tried combining different Gatorade flavors with different liquors, that didn’t turn out well. So just a little tip, don’t bother trying different flavor combinations for the Gatorade, it’s definitely not yummy!

Gatorade Margarita

You have to love a margarita made with a sports drink. And who better to invent such a concoction than the University of Florida Gators sports team. This is a really easy to make cocktail and includes Cool Blue Gatorade, tequila and lime juice. Simple and good like a margarita should be.

Make this a really classy cocktail by rimming the glass with some sea salt or margarita salt if you have it. And if this doesn’t quite work for you or your a margarita purist, try our top shelf margarita recipe on the rocks here. And a little tip, these things are great with crushed ice and make an awesome slushie drink.

Blue Gatorade Shot

This recipe can be made either as a mocktail without Gatorade, or you can replace the Blue Curacao for the Gatorade. Either way, it’s a great blue colored drink and tastes just like the real thing. I personally prefer this made with the Blue Curacao.

Grab your shaker and fill it with a handful of ice to chill the ingredients if you’re using a shot glass. This isn’t necessary if you’re going to make a standard drink with it. Add grape vodka, Blue Curacao and a bit of Sprite. Mix, strain and serve. Super simple! You can get the complete blue Gatorade recipe here.

Purple Gatorade Shot

So if you’re a big fan of grape Gatorade, give this recipe a try as it really does taste just like the real thing. it’s simple enough to make and if you need the complete grape or purple Gatorade shot recipe click on that link.

To make this cocktail you’ll need a shot glass, a shaker with some ice in it and a strainer. Add Grape Vodka, Blue Curacao, sweet and sour mix, grenadine to the shaker and shake. Strain into the shot glass and top off with a touch of 7up or Sprite. That’s it.

Green Giant Gatorade Shot

This is a true tasting original flavor Gatorade shot that has a great green color, hence it’s name. A bit more complicated to make than the previous shots on our list, this has five ingredients and can be served in a shot glass or in a rocks glass as a cocktail drink.

Grab a shaker and add a handful of ice and some vodka, Midori, Cointreau, orange juice and sweet and sour mix, preferably home made. Mix and strain into a shot glass and serve. There’s no garnish for this although you could add a touch of green melon if you wanted.

Lemon-Lime Gatorade Shot

For the lovers of Lemon-Lime Gatorade, we have this copycat recipe that doesn’t have any Gatorade as an ingredient, but it sure does taste a lot like it. Not the best drink ever, but easy to make and definitely packs a punch!

Gatorade Shot Variations

There is a lot you can do with these shots. You can substitute the different alcohols or switch out the flavors for something different. Or even something other than Gatorade.

Best Alcohol to Mix With Gatorade

The best alcohol to mix with Gatorade is definitely vodka. If you look at the recipes above, most of them are made with vodka or a flavored vodka.

But that doesn’t mean Gatorade doesn’t play nice with other alcohols. As you can see above, tequila also does well. But so does rum. Rum seems to do well with any type of mixer as does vodka. But if I didn’t have vodka for one of the recipes above, I would substitute it with rum.

The only ones I wouldn’t think would do well are whiskey, although I’ve never tried using it with Gatorade. So who knows, maybe it does taste great and I’m overlooking a new fad! Otherwise, the best alcohols to experiment with are vodka and rum as they seem to work best with Gatorade.
