One tequila, two tequila, three tequila…floor!
Think you know how to throw one back? Let's see what your personality has to say about that!
For The No-B.S.-Kind-Of-Guy
There’s something comforting about keepin’ things simple, which is why the salt – tequila – lime combo is one of our favorite ways to throw a shot back. Not only is this an easy combination, but it’s a timeless one that’s enthusiastically accepted by all lifestyles. Whether you’re a college student sippin’ from the Cool Beans Shotski or drinking a shot as a digestive aid with dinner, the salt – sip – suck method never fails!
For The Sophisticated Tequila Aficionado
This one’s for all my classy tequila drinkers out there who like to truly taste what they’re drinking. Sangrita is a tomato-citron mixture that highlights different notes in your tequila, while acting as palette cleanser in between sips. This probably isn’t the thing to order if you’re at a crowded bar Saturday night.
An easy DIY Sangrita recipe calls for 1 oz. tomato juice, .5 oz. orange juice and a squeeze of fresh lime. More complicated recipes call for hot sauce, peppers, or grenadine. If you’re too lazy or cullinarily-challenged, just head to Chivo – this downtown taqueria has some of the best Sangrita in town!
For The Daredevil
Beware. This shot isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you can throw back a shot with ease, take your tequila experience to the next level with a Prairie Fire shot.
Per the ever-reliable Wikipedia, a “Real” Prairie Fire shot consists of 1 part tequila to 1 part Tabasco sauce. Sound dangerous? Well, it is – but there’s nothing wrong with a living a little dangerously, right?
For The Wild Child
We have yet to see this recipe published anywhere, so we’re slapping a trademark on it: Savannah’s Coffee Sunrise.
For this concoction, pour 1 part tequila, 2 parts orange juice, and 2 parts cold brew coffee over ice. Your drink should look like an ugly, discolored shade of orange.
While a tequila-orange-coffee mixture might sound (and look) a little questionable, our college selves swear that this cocktail tastes good AND gives you the energy to dance ’til the sun comes up!
