10 Must-Try Shots for This Weekend

10 Must-Try Shots for This Weekend

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just don’t feel like putting in a great deal of effort into mixing a proper cocktail time and time again when I have a larger group of friends getting together.

Making cocktails with a twist can be time consuming, especially when everyone wants something different.

Enter: shots. They’re the perfect combination of a quick mix and a shot (pun intended) of flavour. Girls night out shots are fun and combine the best of both worlds – cocktails and quick drinks.

Here are 10 delicious recipes, all of which should be mixed thoroughly in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and strained into a chilled shot glass.
