EXCITING ALCOHOLIC SHOTS

Picking an alcoholic shot that you may like is much more difficult than just asking a bartender for a shot of vodka or tequila. There are so many choices that it could become overwhelming. One option to figure out what you like is to look up different shot ideas so that you can make them on your own time, and then you’ll be prepared when someone asks you what drink you’d like. Here are some amazing and unique recipes that are easy to make at home: ‘Nuts ‘n Berries’ shot. It’s made with ½ oz. Lemon Vodka, ¼ oz. Hazelnut Liqueur, and ½ oz. Cranberry Juice. You will place all three ingredients in a mixing glass with ice, and then you will shake to blend and chill it. After, strain into a shot glass. Another great and tasty one is called ‘chocolate cake.’ It’s made with ½ oz. Hazelnut Liqueur, ½ oz. Vodka, and lemon & sugar garnish. The first thing you’ll do is coat the lemon wedge with sugar and set that aside. Then add the liquid ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to chill. Strain into a shot glass. You will take the shot quickly, and then immediately bite and suck the sugar coated lemon. It’s fun and great for parties. For those that love coffee, a ‘Mind Eraser’ may be a good drink for you. It’s made with 1 ¼ oz. Coffee Liqueur, ¾ oz. Vodka, and a splash of Club Soda. All you do to make it is build the ingredients over ice, and then drink it with a straw. A cute name for a drink, and an even cuter tasting drink is the ‘Scooby Snack.’ It’s made with ¼ oz. Coconut Rum, ¼ oz. Crème de Bananes, ¼ oz. Melon Liqueur, ¼ oz. Pineapple Juice, and ¼ oz. of Half & Half. You will pour all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill. Then strain into a shot glass. You can also double the ingredients of this drink to make a nice and refreshing beverage on the rocks. Whatever you choose to make, just make sure to enjoy it. If not, then you can always start again until you find something you love. Good luck!
