Having a quality arsenal of shots in mind is especially helpful for impressing friends whether at the bar or hosting your own gathering. This list combines taste, strength and fun to result in five all star shots that guarantee a good time.
In addition to tasting great, Mind Erasers are possibly one of the funnest and most unique shots to take; and they are sure to impress an rookie friend.
Kahlua, Vodka, Club Soda (layered in that order and not mixed)
Buttery Nipples are incredibly strong for tasting so good. They are thick, rich, and creamy unlike most shots and taste more like coffee than alcohol.
Vanilla Vodka, Irish Cream, Butterscotch Schnapps
The Kamikaze gets its merit mostly from its taste and universality. It is a reliable, consistently good-tasting shot that almost any bartender can make.
Vodka, TrippleSec, Lime juice
Vegas Bombs also taste very good and mask the alcohol well. They provide an extra touch of caffeine through the Red Bull which is a nice bonus as well.
Crown, Peach Schnapps, Amaretto, Red Bull
Straight Tequila with salt and lime makes the cut at number five as the only unmixed, straight alcohol shot. Tequila is, perhaps, the most classic straight shot and taken relentlessly by some despite its strong taste. The addition of licking salt off your hand before taking the shot, and sucking on a lime afterward adds a fun touch that makes it a great group shot.
