Jellyfish Shot and a Cookbook

Jellyfish shot. The sound of that is not exactly appetizing and the images in my mind, before I actually knew what it was, were even less attractive. I know, I live under a rock and need to get out more often. But I gotta give it to the Tipsy Bartender – not only does it look cool, it tastes amazing too!


You don’t need to measure the ingredients for the jellyfish a.k.a. Medusa shot (or does it classify as a shooter? Heck if I know). A splash of this and a drop of that is all you’ll need.


One word of advice: don’t let the creaminess and yumminess of this shot fool you. It quickly goes to your head, or maybe I’m a lightweight. Oh, and cool the ingredients before mixing them. You really shouldn’t use ice or you won’t get the jellyfish effect.


OK, so that’s two words of advice. My bad. In my defense, I may or may not have been drinking this jellyfish goodness while writing. I have a good reason to celebrate. My first e-cookbook is published and I can’t be more excited. Check it out here, buy it, share the news and grab a glass of your favorite drink to toast with me (considering you’re happy for me). Cheers!

Jellyfish Shot Recipe

  • Crème de Cacao (white)
  • Amaretto Disaronno
  • Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • Grenadine



  • Keep the ingredients refrigerated before mixing. Fill half of a shot glass with Crème de Cacao. Top with a layer of amaretto and then Bailey’s, best pouring slowly over a teaspoon.
  • To finish, add drops of grenadine and watch tentacles form underneath the amaretto layer. Way too cool!

    First off – what a great concoction of drink! It looks beautiful (and dangerously) delicious. How could anyone resist such a drink with beautiful jellyfish tentacles? That’s very creative! Love it!

    Second of all my dear fabulous Jas: CONGRATULATIONS on the launch of your e-book. How amazing is that and I’m so very happy and excited for you. That’s such a massive milestone and your Balkan cuisine is such a great idea. Nothing like home-made comfort food. I’d give you a big massive hug for such an achievement! Well done, Jas! Big, big congratulations!!! xoxox *muaaacks**
