Celebrating our birthdays has been an age old tradition that started when you were a child. However, as you got older the parties became a lot more fun. You ditched pin the tail on the donkey and picked up body shots. You may have gotten rid of Twister… but if you were smart you’d just change the rules a little bit, make things more interesting! But as you get older the parties become more interesting and you try to step it up from year to year, go bigger each year.
A new tradition that begins when you’re of legal drinking age is taking birthday shots. You bounce from bar to bar taking their custom birthday shot. Whether the shot is delicious and one of your favorites, or if it’s the nasty thing you’ve ever put in your mouth, you have to take it. Here are a few birthday shots we’ve run into over the years.
A fried turkey is only served in bars that cook food. Basically, the fried turkey consists of Wild Turkey and grill grease. To make a fried turkey:
- Pour one shot of Wild Turkey
- Scrape a thin layer of grease onto the shot
I am just going to warn you right now, if you’re standing next to the person taking the shot you may want to give them some space. After taking the shot, most people end up puking. Just warning you!
The Clear Row
Now the Clear Row isn’t a specific shot, rather a row of ten shot glasses. Here’s the twist, 3 shot glasses are filled with Vodka, 3 are filled with rumplemintz and the remaining four are filled with water. The shorts are scattered among one another so you never know which drink you’ll be getting. Now it may seem easier said than done. And from personal experience, it is a pain in the ass taking 3 shots of vodka, 3 rumplemintz and 4 shots of water. Oh, and most places make you take ever shot. It’s nasty and after you take them all you feel like you’re going to vomit.
Lastly, if you’re looking for something to knock you or a buddy on your ass, try a Liquid Cocaine. It’s straight hard-a and taste amazing! But just be careful, these shots will end up putting you down! To make some Liquid Cocaine simple mix the following ingredients in a shot glass:
- .5 oz Goldschlägger
- .5 oz Jagermeister
- .5 oz Rumplemintz
* .5 oz is basically one-third of a shot. So add all three to fill a shot glass.
