When it’s time for all those holiday parties you may be thinking a few booze-filled shots are in order. The gathering of friends around Christmas and New Year’s is a great opportunity to share a round of drinks while reminiscing about old times and sharing funny stories. Luckily, there are some very fun shooter recipes you can mix up and share. From delicious sweets to robust whiskey shots, these drinks are sure to make it a merry night.
The flavor of mint-chocolate makes another appearance in the polar bear. This one takes a different approach to the classic combo, opting for white crème de cacao liqueur and peppermint schnapps. The result is a clear-colored shooter that goes down easy (maybe a little too easy!).
Few whiskey shots can compare to the appealing taste of the red snapper. This one customarily features Crown Royal Canadian Whisky, though nearly any whiskey will do. No matter what you choose to pour, it will go great with the amaretto and cranberry to create a festive drink for a Christmas party.
When you want to serve guests a truly unique shooter, turn to the office party. This funky tequila shot combines lime juice, grenadine, and ginger syrup for a shot that’s spicy, sweet, and tart at one time. The fun part comes in when you add the juice from a red bell pepper. It’s strange, but works out surprisingly well!
A layered shooter will help you show off some bartending skills. The ideal recipe for the holiday theme is the Santa shot. This one is a colorful combination of grenadine, green crème de menthe, and peppermint schnapps. As you might expect, it’s very minty, but the sweet fruit of the grenadine does a fair job of taming that.
The holidays are a great excuse to indulge in all sorts of sweet treats. If you want the taste of a cookie in a glass, try this decadent oatmeal cookie shooter. This fun drink mixes butterscotch schnapps, Irish cream, Jägermeister and cinnamon schnapps to form a drink that’s absolutely delicious.
Unsuspecting ingredients come together to create a shooter that tastes like a chocolate cake. The recipe may not look the part, with its combination of citrus, vanilla, clear vodka, and a hazelnut liqueur like Frangelico, but the flavor will convince you otherwise. Things get even weirder when you’re told to suck on a sugar-coated lemon after drinking it.
Pudding shots are fun to share and easy to make. These boozy little delights are eaten rather than drunk and can take on any flavor you like. For a Christmas party, try the chocolate-mint version or go all out with the chocolate cream. The mocha pudding shot with coffee liqueur and chocolate vodka is another great option.
The silver bullet is a shot that combines two common bar ingredients that are generally not associated with one another. Both happen to be favorites for the season, so it seems like a good time to give it a try. All you need for this one is gin and scotch, though a lemon twist is a nice touch.
Extraordinary does not even begin to describe the big fat Elvis shot! If you’re a fan of DIY projects and bacon, this is definitely the recipe for you and it’s sure to turn a few heads. The recipe combines a bacon-washed whiskey with peanut butter-infused amaretto, maple syrup, and apple-smoked sea salt. It’s a mouthful in more ways than one.
If vodka is more your thing, a great option is the very fun Woo Woo shot. The color and dominance of cranberry juice fit the holiday theme and the peach schnapps gives it a delightful twist. Plus, you get to say, “woo woo” every time you make it. What better way to celebrate with friends?
