How to Take Shots

How to Take Shots

There are many ways to take shots of liquor - some more enjoyable than others. In this blog post, we'll discuss the different ways to take shots and how to make them as enjoyable as possible. Whether you're a hardened shot-taker or just looking to step your game up, we've got you covered. So pull up a chair, pour yourself a drink, and let's get started!

Straight Shots

Taking shots of liquor straight is a rite of passage for many people - but it's not always the most enjoyable experience. Anyone who's ever taken a shot of liquor knows that feeling you get - mouth watering, throat on fire, and stomach starting to get queasy. The burning sensation as the alcohol hits your throat can be pretty overwhelming, and it's not uncommon to end up with a nasty headache afterwards. Some people think that taking shots of liquor straight is a sign of strength, but in reality it's just a quick way to get drunk. If you want to enjoy your drink, and your weekend, then straight shots probably aren't the best route to go.


Shots with Chasers

Taking shots of liquor with a chaser is a much more enjoyable experience than taking them straight. By adding a chaser, you can help to minimize the burning sensation in your throat and make the whole process a lot more palatable. There are different ways to use a chaser to reduce the burn of the alcohol. Most people take a shot, then frantically grab for a chaser or a "back". Some people prefer to drink the chaser first, to not ever have to fully taste the shot, and some people go chaser shot chaser, to really cover up the taste and feel of taking shots.


Shots with TakeShots

Taking shots has never been what we call and "enjoyable" experience. While it hasn't ever been something people love to do, we still do it! Don't get us wrong, it has its benefits. Sometimes you don't want to sit and sip on a full drink just for one shot - this goes double after a big meal. Sometimes we're looking to throw them back quick like when we're getting ready to go out or we're at a concert and want to get that buzz going. But nevertheless, it's never been something we consider to be fun.


Enter TakeShots. TakeShots has invented a brand new way of taking shots. We invented the world's first Shot Straw. What is it? It's a straw that holds a 1oz shot inside without leaking! You can fill it up with your favorite alcohol, drop it in a drink, and suck like a normal straw!


So what does it do to make taking shots more enjoyable? When you suck on the straw, you get the shot IMMEDIATELY followed by the chaser. This means no more grabbing that chaser with the scowl on on your face while your spine does that post-shot shiver. Simply suck on the straw and seamlessly transition from shot to chaser.


They're also great for going out! Fill up a few Takes, throw them in your Case, bag or cooler, and bring some shots with you! When you're ready, all you have to do is drop it in your drink and suck. This also helps us party smarter - we only bring what we know we can drink without getting crazy. So whether you want to take 2, 5, or 10 (please don't) shots that night, you're prepared for anything.



No matter what type of drinker you are, TakeShots makes taking shots (shots shots shots) more enjoyable, more discrete when you're out pre-gaming or at a music festival, and just more fun. Check out our full line of products and tell us how you TakeShots!
