Spicy Pickle Shot
Salt. Tequila. Lime? Only for the weak.
It's now: Tabasco. Tequila. Pickle.
This shot is as disturbing as it sounds, but surprisingly fun if you're feeling daring. Slice up some pickles and douse them in Tabasco sauce. Pour a shot of tequila, or if you're at a bar, order a shot of the well tequila. Trust me, you won't be able to tell the difference.
Now that you have all of the necessary ingredients for a Spicy Pickle Shot, grab a pickle slice and lick off the Tabasco. Then take the shot of tequila and finish it off by eating the pickle. Your mouth will burn but the briny goodness of the pickle will help reduce the pain.
You could switch it up and use vodka for a similar effect, but trust us, stick with tequila. You just can't beat the mix of flavors and spice.
