It’s almost nighttime and you’re throwing a party. Next question. The whole crew’s going to be there plus some randoms and everyone is ready to get weird. You’re going to get props because you always throw solid parties but you need to focus on logistics in the next few hours to really pull it off. Personally, we always go with kegs. They’re reliable, and they get the job done. If you want to go above the call of duty, though, you need to have shots. If you do them right they’re not that expensive and they add a next level of cool to the night.

We’ve spent a ton of time researching this and taste testing so you know the list is legit and will kick your party up a notch. And isn’t that really all we’re all looking for?

 

In no particular order…

1 oz. Kahlua coffee liqueur
1 oz. tonic water

This shot, like its namesake, will come right at you and self-destruct your ass into a wild night. Plus it tastes excellent.

Ingredients:

1 oz. vodka
1 oz. triple sec
1 oz. lime juice

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

Shake well.

Pour into a shot glass.

This is a fairly flexible recipe, and other liquors are commonly substituted for the vodka. Try it with tequila or Southern Comfort.

 

Bazooka Joe

It tastes just like bubblegum and you can tear through shots like crazy with this one. Even if its not tonight because you can’t find that much Red Bull from one of your campus rep friends on such short notice, make sure you get your hands on some of this at some point.

Ingredients:

1 part Red Bull
1 part Bacardi Limón

Directions:

Mix ingredients together in a shot glass.

Shoot and enjoy!

Chuck Norris once took a dozen of these shots in one sitting. He didn’t get hammered. Hammered got Chuck Norris’d.

Ingredients:

1 oz. cherry UV vodka
2 oz. Liquid Ice or Full Throttle Blue Demon Energy Drink (amount can be adjusted to taste)

Directions:

This shot is best as a bomb shot. Using a divided shot glass, pour the cherry UV vodka into the center shot and the energy drink into the outer shot.

Shoot.

Enjoy!
