Everyone loves learning new shots to drink at your local bar. There’s nothing worse than wanting to order shots, trying to decide what to get, angering the bartender, and finally settling on medicinal-tasting (yet-oh-so-good) Jagermeister. And when you are out with your buddies, you like to mix it up a little.
Seven straight shots of Jameson are tasty, sure, but after throwing up all over the bar, you think, “I wish we would have tried some other shots before I blacked out.”
So this inforgraphic is meant to help you impress your friends and learn some new shots to drink!
Personally, I’ve only tried seven of these shots. The Baby Guinness and Washington Apple shots make regular appearances at Maguire’s Hill 16 in Fort Lauderdale (our softball team bar). The Baby Guinness shot, if you’ve never had it, tastes like an angel made you a little cup of coffee and the devil peed in it. It’s awesome!
And from a pure taste perspective, I think the Pineapple Upside-Down Cake shot tastes the best of all the ones I’ve tried. Then again, I was upside down when I drank it, which I now understand was totally unnecessary.
My cousin Aaron often comes up with some great shots to drink when I go up to visit him in Central Florida. This last time I was up there, my nephew Calvin, who goes to the University of Florida like a good nephew should, came back and taught us about a “Peppermint Patty” shot. Basically, it’s a shot of Peppermint Schnapps with a spoonful of chocolate syrup as a chaser. Trust me when I say, it is so good it will make you want to become a lesbian cartoon character.
Another shot I used to like a lot was called a “Root Beer Barrel,” which was actually more of a boilermaker than a drinking shot. You drop a shot of Root Beer Schnapps into a 3/4-glassful of beer. Then you pound the whole thing, let out a gasp, wipe your sleeve across your mouth, and plant a kiss on the closest legal, non-family member in your proximity. It’s in the rules.
