This pudding shot recipe is a little more challenging. It is important to work quickly so that the pudding does not set before you have filled all the shot glasses. Make sure each layer does not fill up more than 1/3 of each shot glass.

Note: You may create an interesting new flavor by substituting a root beer layer (using vanilla pudding mix and root beer schnapps) for the strawberry layer.
