Whether it is a night on the town with a group of friends, a good shot can set the mood for the evening, and is a great icebreaker. There are thousands of shots, and it is hard to say who will love what type of shot. Sometimes, its the name or the ingredient. After much research, here is the list of the top 25 according to http://www.liquorista.com/best-shots/.
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.
