Rotten Orange Shooter Recipe

When making a Halloween cocktail, you need to think spooky, eye catching, and fun. Layered shooters are a great way to achieve this. Despite the name, this shooter is delicious!

(Instead of regular vodka and black food coloring, you can use black vodka, a seasonally released special, if you find a trusted gluten-free brand at your local liquor store.)
