Many times, a shot is named for something that tastes only tangentially like its name. Not so with the Green Gummy Bear. This shot tastes like a candy you know and love, and also gets you wasted. Despite being green, this popular shot has a light orange taste. So put on your safety belt and get ready to ride the Green Gummy Bear shot!
Folks here in Sacramento know the very best place to grab a Sake Bomb is at Crazy Sushi on a Thursday night.

The days are getting colder, perhaps it’s time to grab something that will warm your bones. If that’s what you’ve been thinking, then let me introduce you to the Hot Apple Pie Shot.

When I look at the list of classic cocktails, I notice that most of them are pretty simple. One drink that I enjoy mixing as much I enjoy drinking is the Lemon Drop shot . It’s clean, it tastes good, and you can make it a Lemon Drop Martini just by increasing the volume of the recipe a little. I would put the Lemon Drop in the pantheon of great Girl’s Night Out cocktails, like the Cosmopolitan or the Appletini. Unlike those other drinks, guys can drink a Lemon Drop cocktail without too much stigma attached. After all, who doesn’t like vodka lemonade?
