Tiger Tail Shooter

The Tiger Tail Shot is made from Tia Maria, Grand Marnier, and Peppermint Schnapps. It is a layered shot meant to resemble the colour for a tiger tail.

In Canada, we have a famous ice cream that is called Tiger Tail Ice Cream. It is orange flavoured with a black licorice swirl throughout. The Tiger Tail Shooter tastes nothing like Tiger Tail Ice Cream. For this shooter, you’ll want the Canadian Tiger Tail.
