Thinkers have pondered this eternal question since the dawn of western thought: what shot should you do? You don’t want to be called a pussy, but you also don’t want to be called pukey after a night hugging the toilet. It’s a delicate balance, so we’ve put together this list that will help you get your drink on without worries. When we say without worries, we don’t mean without a hangover. You’ll still have one of those.
SoCo Lime – Long a favorite of co-eds everywhere, this combination of Southern Comfort and lime juice goes down easily and provides quite the alcoholic kick. Most establishments will accept a glimpse of your tits in lieu of currency for this shooter.
Blow Job Shot – Yes, you heard correctly. This combination of Bailey’s Irish Cream and Amaretto is topped with a dab of whipped cream. The drinker must then place their hands behind their back, and ingest the shot using only their lips (pick it up with your pucker and tilt your head backwards). Some important advice for this puppy: go slow and watch the teeth (that's what he said).
Kamikaze – Made from vodka, triple sec, and lime, this is the penultimate girlie shot. It’s named after the WWII Japanese pilots who dive bombed themselves into targets. Today, it’s for dive bombing yourself into oblivion.
Irish Car Bomb – This three level shot is made with Irish Whiskey, Guinness, and Bailey’s. The whiskey and Irish cream goes in a shot glass, which gets dropped in a half glass of Guinness and pounded back. It’s named after the weapons used in the IRA’s struggle against the British.
Flaming Dr. Pepper Shot – Amaretto is combined with Bacardi 151, set on fire, and then dropped in a ½ glass of light beer. It’s supposed to taste just like a Dr. Pepper. What makes this shot manly? Claiming you feel no pain after accidentally burning your eyebrows off.
Girlie Man Shots
Lemon Drop – Yes, it’s a glass of straight vodka. But, the sugar on the rim coupled with the lemon chaser dilutes this into girlie-man territory.
Woo Woo – This combination of peach schnapps, cranberry, and vodka makes you say “woo!” You know, just like you do when dancing to Lady Gaga.
Pound these Spirits Straight
Jager – This liquor has notes of liquorice and is served ice cold. In The Hangover, the characters share a few shots of this spirit on the roof of Caesars before their infamous night on the town. The movie is true to life. If you’re drinking this, you can expect to wake up 8 hours later with a tiger in the bathroom. Don’t go in there!
Jameson – Shooting this Irish Whiskey is the mark of a cool drinker. If you want to be especially badass, order a shot of Jameson with a can of PBR or other cheap beer. Think of this as the blue collar “dude’s special”.
Jack Daniel’s – You know you’re a pro when you can take a shot of this Whiskey without throwing up a little in your mouth. It usually takes 17 – 21 attempts before you succeed.
Patron – You won’t find any worms in the bottles of this silky smooth tequila. Take it with a little lime. What’s that? You miss the worms? Ok then, start digging.
For the Underage Only
Fuzzy Navel – Vodka and Peach Schnapps - Hello 17 year old.
Long Island Iced Tea – Yeah, it’s not a shot, but come on. Hello 16 year old.
Yes, They Still Make These
Alabama Slammer – This one’s got it all: Amaretto, Peach Schnapps, sloe gin, orange juice, and sour mix. Contrary to popular belief, you won’t find a lot of these in Alabama. It would be on the menus there, but it doesn’t call for bathtub gin as an ingredient.
Red Headed Slut – This classic combination of peach schnapps, Jager and cranberry has been helping people slut it up for years. Not to be confused with yo’ mama (oh, snap!).
