T-Virus | Resident Evil Inspired Shot (Secret of the Booze)

What a great video game based cocktail. Perfect timing for Halloween!

1.5 shot Silver Rum
2/4 shot Everclear
1 Blue Twizzler

Directions: Wind a blue Twizzler around a tall double shot glass. It should stick to the sides of the glass. Pour in the silver rum and top with the Everclear. Drink, then eat the Twizzler for a sweet and tangy aftertaste. You will have to fish out the Twizzler with your finger after you drink, as it will still be stuck to the side of the shot glass.
