You Will Need
- A shot glass
- A bar
- An audience
- A toast
- A lime wedge
Whiskey, tequila, and vodka are all classic choices. Don't embarrass yourself by doing shots of Irish cream.
Measure 1½ ounces into a shot glass.
For best results, sit or stand at a bar so you'll have something to slam your glass onto after downing your shot.
Doing a shot should be dramatic. If nobody's watching, what's the point? Make a toast to attract attention. Buy a round if you have to.
Raise the glass to your lips. Tip head and glass back together in one motion. Let the liquor flow down, bypassing your taste buds as much as possible. Enjoy the burning sensation.
If desired, follow with an icy chaser. Beer is a time-honored choice after bourbon. Cola will do in a pinch.
Repeat the process. Get someone else to buy this time.
