The result is a delightful combination of coffee, creamy sweetness, and a hint of citrus. The precision required in layering adds an element of skill to the enjoyment of this classic shot.

Buttery Nipple Shot:

This indulgent shot is a sweet treat for those with a penchant for creamy concoctions. Comprising butterscotch schnapps and Irish cream, the Buttery Nipple lives up to its name, delivering a smooth and rich flavour profile. The layered effect, with the butterscotch schnapps at the bottom and the Irish cream on top, adds an enticing visual appeal to these delightful bar shots.


A popular choice among partygoers, the Jägerbomb combines the herbal notes of Jägermeister with the energy-boosting properties of an energy drink. The ritual involves dropping a shot of Jägermeister into a glass of energy drink and quickly consuming the combination. The contrasting flavours and the energy kick make the Jägerbomb a dynamic choice for those looking to elevate their shot experience.

Tequila Sunrise Shot:

Inspired by the classic cocktail, the Tequila Sunrise Shot is a visually stunning creation. It features tequila, orange juice, and grenadine, creating a gradient of colours reminiscent of a sunrise.

The interplay of citrusy notes from the orange juice and the sweetness of grenadine adds complexity to the shot, making it a visually and gustatorily appealing option.

The intensity of the cinnamon, combined with the smoothness of the whisky, creates a memorable shot experience that is both bold and refreshing.

Snake Bite Shot:

This shot combines equal parts lager and cider with a dash of blackcurrant cordial. The result is a bold and fruity concoction that offers a unique twist on the traditional beer shot.
