Tequila is a wild man’s drink. It’s a rough drink, too. It goes down like fire, and it can lead to situations where your pants have mysteriously disappeared, and you suddenly find yourself wearing a huge sombrero. But why just drink the Mexican nectar straight up when you can add a little panache to your shots? Add some extra spice to your drinking with these four tequila shots that will take your night to another level, and remember: it’s all right to fear the worm.

 

Snake Bite Tequila

Ingredients:

  • 1 shot of tequila
  • One lime wedge

Directions:

  1. Fill your shot glass with tequila; leave a little space at the top.
  2. Squeeze the lime wedge over your glass.
  3. Pound the shot.
  4. Suck the lime.

Fuzzy Worm. We move on from the Mexico-inspired spicy shots to something a little sweeter. Tequila may not be the sweetest liquor in the world, but it mixes well with some fruity flavors. A warm type of liqueur like peach schnapps is the perfect compliment. For the ladies who don’t like the brutality of a hot shot, this drink is not unlike a miniature Tequila Sunrise, and this is the one for you!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 shot of tequila
  • 1/4 shot of peach schnapps
  • A few drops of orange juice

Directions:

  1. Fill a shot glass halfway with tequila.
  2. Add a quarter of a glass of peach schnapps.
  3. Float a few drops of orange juice on top.
  4. Guzzle  the shot, and enjoy the warmth.
