Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Shot

The Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Shot is a fun vodka-based shooter that, while not the most sophisticated drink in the world, is a popular one for parties and nightclubs. It's a semi-layered shot, with bright-red grenadine at the bottom and pineapple juice on top to emulate the look of an actual pineapple upside-down cake.

Some Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Shot recipes call for vanilla vodka (or other flavored vodka), which is also a totally acceptable option. Once again, this isn't a drink where you really need to worry about subtlety, so feel free to mess around with all kinds of different ingredients and variations!
