Drinking is fun whether you are on a night out on the town with friends or just with a special date; making sure to order the perfect shot to suit a certain occasion is so important. Having a good shot can set up the mood for the rest of the evening as well as make a perfect ice breaker. There are so many different shots on the market, so how do you choose? There are shots that draw you in by their fancy and fun names like ‘Pineapple Upside Down Cake.’ This is a bartenders favorite when a girl doesn’t know what to order; it’s made with Jim Beam, Peach Schnapps, Stolichnaya, pineapple juice, and a splash of Maraschino Cherry juice. It tastes just like it sounds. If you want to have a nice smelling breathe after you drink, order a ‘Hot Damn.’ It’s made with rum, whiskey, vodka, and orange juice. It’s such a yummy drink to share with your date.
If you are a female that can handle your liquor, ordering a ‘B-52’ is such a great drink to get. It’s made with Irish cream, Kahlua, and Grand Marnier. It will literally feel like a bomb going down, but it’s pretty subtle at the same time with a smooth and sweet quality. You can even turn this shot into a real drink by dropping it into a glass of milk and then drink it fast right away. Having a sweet tooth makes ordering drinks easy sometimes especially if you get the ‘White Gummy Bear.’ It’s made with cherry vodka, peach schnapps, pineapple juice, and a splash of Sprite. It tastes like a sweet and tart gummy bear. Coffee drinkers will love ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ It’s made with tequila, Grand Marnier, and Tia Maria. You will taste oranges, coffee, and tequila. This drink is very strong and tasty, so make sure to know your limit. A ‘Jolly Rancher’ is a delight; it’s made with Amaretto, Melon Liqueur, Grenadine, and Sprite. It has a sweet taste of almond, with a bit of a sour punch mixed with fizzy melon flavors. This is definitely a shot for those that don’t like the taste of liquor. Enjoy your new found shots of fun.
