Prep time





The Snakebite Shot is sweet with flavours of honey and orange going down, but bites you on the finish with its tart lime and Whiskey kick.


  • 3/4 oz. Yukon Jack

  • 1/4 oz. Lime Juice


  • Add Yukon Jack and Lime Juice to a Cocktail Shaker Full of Ice
  • Shake until ice cold and strain into a shot glass.

Lime Juice Substitutes

If you don’t have fresh limes kicking around, a splash of Bar Lime or Rose’s Lime Juice will work just fine. This substitution might even improve the shot as they contain sugar to sweeten it up even more.
