How to Take a Tequila Shot?

Did you hear “Tequila Shots!”?

Well, there is no looking back then. When the words are uttered, there is only one way out — get ready to shoot some tequila shots.

It doesn’t matter whether you initiated the deed to sprinkle some mischief in your weekend evening or it was that one friend of yours who loves to end the celebration with power drinks. Shots are ready to be shot.

Whether you like sipping it neat or enjoying timeless cocktails, most say tequila is best drank in shots. It is up for debate, but did you know there is an appropriate way to have a tequila shot? Fancy? Read on!

The Classic Way to Shoot a Shot of Tequila

A proper tequila shot requires salt, lime, and tequila carried in a specific order. First, you need to get some salt (sea or cooking salt), a shot glass, Tequila Travesuras, and a lime wedge. Get the shot ready and remember this:

  1. Lick
  2. Shoot
  3. Suck

- Lick the salt off your hand.

- Shoot the shot swiftly.

- Suck on a wedge of lime immediately after.

The salt reduces tequila’s burning sensation, while the fresh lime juice balances the flavor with its sour and fruity taste, significantly enhancing your overall experience.

The method mentioned above is classic and the most popular. However, it isn’t the only way. There are tempting alternatives, especially if you do not prefer licking salt off the back of your hand. Here’s what you can do.

Take your shot glass, coat its rim with salt, and let its bitterness blend with the tequila’s smoothness to create a balanced flavor; no more licking hands.

Everybody uses salt. What about sugar? It is indeed a delicious trick. Tequila is about mischief, and you cannot be mischievous if you go by the book every time. You can upgrade your experience with unique combinations.

Bonus: 3 Cocktail Recipes

As we mentioned above, tequila is delightful in any way you want to have it. However, if you are not into shots and want to enjoy delicious cocktails, here are a few combinations you should try.

  • Triple Sec + Lime

It is the margarita, the most popular tequila cocktail. Mix your margarita with various flavors. A margarita for two servings needs the 3-2-1 ratio: 3 ounces of Tequila Travesuras, 2 ounces of orange liquor, and 1 ounce of lime juice. Bring your favorite fruits to the mix. It can be watermelon, jalapeños, or strawberries.

  • Vermouth

What about a tequila martini? Blend our Blanco tequila with dry vermouth and add charm to the classic cocktail. Splash some olive juice to enhance it.

  • Grapefruit Soda

Paloma and margarita are perhaps the most popular and demanded cocktails. Let’s add a twist to your favorite Paloma. Use grapefruit-flavored soda instead of orange liqueur. Combine 2 ounces of Tequila Travesuras, 2 ounces of grapefruit-flavored soda, and 1 ounce of lime juice. Let the party get wild.

The Best Tequila Tip

Whichever tequila you choose, avoid cheap brands to avoid unpleasant hangovers. However, even premium, infused tequila will give you hangovers if you have too many shots.
