Whether it is a night on the town with a group of friends, or that special someone in your life, ordering the perfect shot to suit the occasion is not only necessary, it is mandatory! A good shot can set the mood for the evening, and is a great icebreaker. There are thousands of shots to choose from…so how do you choose? It is hard to say who will love what type of shot. Sometimes, the name of the shot draws you in. How can you refuse a shot called Panty Man? After much research, we have gathered a list of drinks that will hit the shot…I mean spot.
Now the only reason these shots are recommended for women is some have funny names, a few are creamy and sweet, and the rest have just enough of fruity kick, but may leave you dancing with a strange guy, or waking up on the bathroom floor.
Hot Damn – Whiskey, Rum, Vodka, Orange Juice
A “yummy” drink to share with the man of your dreams, it leaves your breath smelling nice, and sneaks up on you, so it may be wise to only have one of these libations.
Pineapple Upside Down Cake – Stolichannya, Jim Beam, Peach Schnapps, Pineapple juice, 1 splash Maraschino Cherry Juice
A favorite for a bartender to recommend when a female customer has no idea what to order. This is a sweet one and tastes like its name.
Red Headed Sl*t – Peach Schnapps, Jagermeister, cranberry juice
This is not the shot to order in front of your mother-in-law, especially if you are a red head, however it is a popular shot for bachelorette parties.
B-52 – Irish Cream, Kahlua, Grand Marnier
This shot lives up to its name because it feels like a bomb going down, but it is subtle enough to make the girls list because it has a smooth, yet sweet quality. If you are feeling a little crazy, turn this shot into a real bomb, drop into a glass of milk and shoot it.
White Gummy Bear – Cherry Vodka, Peach Schnapps, Pineapple Juice, Splash Sprite
The white gummy bear lives up to its name because like a gummy bear, it has that sweet tart quality.
Absolut B*tch – Absolut Vodka, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kahlua, Tuaca
You do not have to be the “B” word to appreciate this one. Although the name is Absolut B*tch, the combination of vodka, Irish cream, Kahlua, and tuaca is smooth, and delightful.
Absolut Legspreader – Absolut Vodka, Midori
Perhaps this one should be on the guys recommended list, because the name says it all. It is also green (we all know what it means when a guy hands you a green M&M) …enough said.
Alice in Wonderland – Grand Marnier, Tequila, Tia Maria
Oranges, coffee, and tequila you say? Why not? Out on the town with your best friend looking to hook up with a guy, after a few of these you start to feel like the world around you is changing into a magical place, but don’t be fooled, that handsome guy sitting next to you may just be the mad hatter.
Jolly Rancher – Amaretto, Melon Liqueur, Grenadine, Sprite
Amaretto is Italian liquor and has a sweet taste with a hint of almond, mixed with sour sweet grenadine, melon liqueur and a pop of fizz this is a true crown pleaser. For those who do not like the taste of liquor, this is the shot for you.
Buttery Nipple – Bailey’s Irish Cream, Butterscotch Schnapps
This is a popular shot among the men, however, not for its content, for its context! “I’d like a buttery nipple please,” always seems to get a snicker from those around you. It will not knock your socks off but it is a fun shot to say aloud.
See above…. 😉
252 – Bacardi 151, Wild Turkey 101
151+101=252, clever name for a stout shot. This is a manly shot because it is straight up, with nothing to water it down.
Captain Coke – Captain Morgan’s Rum, Coca Cola
Simple, sweet, and to the point, this shot gets the job done.
Panty Man – Absolut Kurant Vodka, Cranberry Juice, Sour Mix
The name Kurant is a play on the Swedish black berry currant, mixing it with the tart of cranberry, and sour mix, this is a lip pucker shot, so keep your panties on, panty man.
Kick in the b*lls – Cuervo Gold (Tequila), Jack Daniel’s (Whiskey), Yukon Jack
The name of this shot says it all; it will kick you in the balls! Yukon Jack is 100 proof liquor from Canada, mixed with tequila, and whiskey, your liver may need a vacation after this.
Mind Eraser – Vodka, Kahlua, 7-up
The mind eraser is the a great shot to celebrate a win, or enjoy with the buddies, it lives up to its name, and is easy to take down.
Motor Oil – Jagermeister, Goldschlager, Malibu Rum, Peppermint Schnapps
Most metrosexuals shy away from changing the oil themselves, must keep those fingernails spotless. This is a perfect solution, the oil, without the mess. Jager is a mix of over 50 spices, sweet liqueur, Goldschlager is a fancy Swiss, cinnamon flavored schnapps, add to that the smooth coconut Caribbean rum, add some mint and you have clean motor oil.
Afterburner – Cool Citrus After Shock Liqueur, Bacardi Rum 151
There is rumor that the thick liqueur After Shock, a product by Jim Bean brand will crystalize in your stomach and release more alcohol the next morning…this of course is a myth. However, this shot will warm your friends’ stomachs, and now you have a good story to tell them after they drink it. Keep them guessing.
Irish Car Bomb – served in a tall glass – Guinness, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Irish Whiskey
Cheers to the Irish! This is a great party shot, because the fun comes when everyone drops the whiskey and Irish cream into the glass of Guinness and down it as fast as you can. Some bartenders will light this one on fire for you…if you ask.
Partybar Schuffel – Amaretto, Melon Liqueur, Peach Schnapps, Cranberry Juice
This is an easy to swallow mellow shot with a twist of tart. Great for both the men and women of your group.
Tes Generaciones – Tequila, salt, lemon.
Tres Generaciones is a triple distilled very smooth and robust tequila, it feels like electrical shots through the body as it goes down! In a group, shoot it – lick the salt – suck the lemon!
Passed Out Naked on the Bathroom – Bacardi Rum 151, Cuervo Gold, Jagermeister, Rumple Minze
Rumple Minze is peppermint schnapps, so it adds the needed spice to this party favorite.
Kamikaze – Vodka, Triple Sec, Limes
The kamikaze is named after the Japanese fighters who would die to complete their mission. This shot will not kill you, unless you are on a mission to drink yourself to death.
