The Cactus Cooler Shot is a fun and fruity shot that mixes different flavors like pineapple with strong flavors like orange vodka and peach schnapps.

The shot has a delicious, refreshing taste, thanks to the mix of different flavors in one cup. Besides pineapple juice, you also need to add an energy drink.
