Recipe Tips

  • This recipe makes 2 shots. Adjust the quantities according to how many shots you want to make.

  • Another way to make this drink is to shake the ingredients without the whipped cream, and only adding it on the top at the end.

  • This recipe has a fairly low alcohol content, compared to most other shots. This is because it's made from liqueurs, most of which you'll find with ~20% ABV.

Scooby Snack Shot Ingredients

The Scooby Snack shot is a sweet, fruity, creamy shot inspired by Scooby-Doo. It's made with equal parts coconut rum, crème de banane (banana liqueur), melon liqueur, pineapple juice, and whipped cream. It's then topped off with a bit more whipped cream at the end.

Best Coconut Rum For The Scooby Snack Shot

Malibu is by far the most popular coconut rum, and its quality of flavors and smoothness makes it a great option for this shot. It doesn't matter too much though, because it's just a shot.

If you were making this as a cocktail to sip on, that's when you will want to ensure you have a good quality coconut rum like Malibu, a sweet liqueur with 21% alcohol content.


The Scooby Snack Shot's origin is a mystery (just like Scooby's adventures!). It's thought to have emerged in the 1990s when fruity cocktails were popular. Despite the name, it's not officially related to the Scooby-Doo series, but it has been embraced by fans and cocktail enthusiasts alike.

This playful shot continues to be popular in bars worldwide, delighting with its colorful appearance and tropical taste.

Similar Drinks

If you want something similar to the Scooby Snack Shot, try the Piña Colada. It's a much more well-known drink, sharing the tropical flavors of coconut and pineapple.

Otherwise, if you want another fun, creamy shot topped with whipped cream, then the Blow Job Shot is for you.


What Does A Scooby Snack Shot Taste Like?

The Scooby Snack cocktail is a burst of sweet, fruity flavors with a creamy texture. You'll taste sweet coconut from the rum, tangy fruitiness from the pineapple juice, and a hint of creaminess. The Midori adds a melon undertone.

It's a relatively weak shot (with an ABV of ~13%), since it has no straight spirits in it, but it tastes amazing.

How Much Alcohol In A Scooby Snack Shot?

Depending on the specific liqueurs you use, the Scooby Snack shot has about 13.4% ABV. This means that a single shot, using this recipe, contains around 4 grams of alcohol.

Keep in mind that this is assuming that the liqueurs you're using are Malibu, Midori, and Joseph Cartron Banana Liqueur, in the quantities listed in this recipe.

For reference, a standard drink in the United States is 14 grams, and in the UK, it's 8 grams. This means that depending on the country you're in, and how they define a standard drink, the Scooby Snack shot is anywhere from 0.25 to 0.5 standard drinks.

Will A Scooby Snack Shot Get You Drunk?

Scooby Snack shots are relatively weak, only containing liqueurs with around 20% ABV each, as well as partly being made of non-alcoholic drinks. For more details about the alcohol content, read the section above.

That being said, you can still get drunk from these if you have too many of them, so it's recommended not to have more than a couple of them, especially if you're also having other drinks.

Where Did The Scooby Snack Shot Get It's Name?

The name is a reference to the children's animated TV show Scooby-Doo, focused around a team of mystery solvers, including a talking dog named Scooby Doo, who'd do anything for his favorite treat, the Scooby Snack.

It's not entirely clear why it's named as a reference to the show. It could just be the green color, similar to the protagonists' vehicle, The Mystery Machine. I guess that's just a mystery we're going to have to solve another day.
