Ordering and taking shots is an easy way to make friends at a bar and kick off a night of fun. When I turned 21, I was invincible to taking any and every shot. Nothing phased me. Now, not so much. The shot has to be smooth and have a decent taste or I will gag immediately. Is this what getting older is like? Anyways. Whether you’re new to 21 or in need of a shot that isn’t plain wells vodka, this list is for you.
