As the weather warms up and days grow longer, it is natural to want to celebrate the coming of summer with a few shots and some friends. In the event that your friends are a little more daring with their beverage choices, we’ve outlined several shots that are not worth ingesting just to win your drunk buddy’s double-dog-dare. With your health and safety in mind, here are the 10 most disgusting shots to never order at a bar:
1. Cement Mixer
3/4 ounce Bailey's
3/4 ounce lime juice
Here’s an idea: anything that is related to concrete in any way is not something you should consume. An added reason to avoid this crazy shot is that it combines citrus and dairy, never a good combo.
2. Gorilla Puke
3/4 ounce Bacardi 151
3/4 ounce Wild Turkey Bourbon Whiskey
It’s highly unlikely you will even get through ordering this drink without immediately regretting becoming “the guy at the bar who just ordered puke.” But let’s assume you get past the ordering phase. Then you are on to the drinking phase, which is basically just pounding a shot that’s as close to rubbing alcohol as booze gets.
3. Black Death
2 ounce vodka
Soy sauce (to taste)
Even if you were feeling really hard core and wanted to drink a beverage entitled “Black Death,” this one tastes disgusting. There is nothing admirable or impressive about someone spitting out a shot of vodka-infused soy sauce.
4. She Ran Over My Heart with a Bulldozer
1/2 ounce rum
1/4 ounce Amaretto
1/4 ounce tequila
Unlike Gorilla Puke, ordering this drink at a bar will immediately up your swagger factor. Unfortunately, rum, Amaretto and tequila make for about the grossest liquor combination there is.
5. Liquid Steak
1 1/2 ounce Barcardi 151
Worcestershire sauce (to taste)
If the ingredients aren’t enough to stop you from ordering this shot, the title should be a deterrent. Here’s a basic rule of thumb: don’t order liquid meat in public, just don’t do it.
6. Motor Oil
1 ounce Jagermeisteer Herbal Liqueur
1/2 ounce Peppermint Schnapps
1/2 ounce Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps
1/2 ounce Malibu Coconut Rum
Here’s the biggest reason to avoid this shot: if the bartender misunderstands your order, you’ll be drinking a shot of poison. The human body cannot digest actual motor oil, and speaking from experience, it can barely digest this cocktail either.
1 1/2 ounce Jaegermeister
One pickled egg
This shot includes a pickled egg. Repeat, this shot includes a pickled egg. Don’t be that person. Your breath will thank you for it.
8. Smoker’s Cough
1 1/2 ounce Jagermeister
One tablespoon of warm mayonnaise
Even the thought of this shot causes a very visceral reaction. It looks and tastes a lot like phlegm, with just a touch of fennel. Avoid at all costs.
9. Prairie Fire
2 ounce tequila
Tabasco sauce (to taste)
This shot is a typical 21st birthday classic. The only problem is that it is the liquid equivalent of lighting a forest fire in your intestines. Nobody likes a guy with a fire burning in his digestive system.
10. The Tapeworm
1 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce Tabasco sauce
Dash of pepper
Dash of mayonnaise
In case you didn’t know, a tapeworm is a parasite that thrives in human intestines, sometimes growing as large as 15 feet. The only excuse for ordering this shot is being unaware of what a tapeworm is. Now that you know, there is no excuse to ever, ever order this shot.
