Vodka is one of the most popular liquors to drink, especially in shot form. It’s smooth and clean-tasting and often comes in sweeter flavors. So if you’re new to taking shots or want to try a different type of party shot, consider trying some of the best vodka shots out there.
Any of the following vodka shots make great party drinks, from the classic lemon drop shot to something a little fancier. If you have a large group or just a few people over, don’t be afraid to whip out the vodka and show off your shot-making skills!
The kamikaze shot is often ordered at bars, but it’s pretty easy to make at home. All you need is vodka, triple sec, and lime juice to make a delicious shot with a punchy, tart flavor. If you’re trying to impress your guests, the kamikaze is a go-to and sure to up your bartending game.
Woo Woo Shot
The Woo Woo shot also has three ingredients and comes out a lovely pink color. This shot is great for beginning drinkers who don’t want to drink straight vodka. The woo-woo shot is simple, sweet, and delicious, a mix of vodka, peach schnapps, and cranberry juice. It’s a great way to save some of the vodkas as well.
Gummy Bear Shot
The gummy bear shot is a fun way to theme a party or include candy as a chaser. Peach schnapps, cherry vodka, pineapple juice, and sprite are a little more complicated than your average shot. However, most people serve it with a gummy bear in the shot glass, making it a sweet and colorful way to take shots!
White Tea Shot
There is no tea in the white tea shot, but it comes out to a white, milky color (which is where it likely got the name). However, the taste is tart and citrusy, unlike tea. A white tea shot has peach schnapps, soda, and sour mix and is easy to throw together for a summery backyard party.
Lemon Drop Shots
If we’re talking about citrusy vodka shots, nothing is more classic than a lemon drop shot. Traditionally made with lemonade and vodka, this can also be made with lemon juice and sugar. If you’ve ever asked a bartender to make you a lemon drop, you know that these shots are delicious and easy to drink!
