The Slammer

Previous | Home | Next

The innate joy of downing a slammer might escape the casual consumer of cocktails. Perhaps it has to do with getting in touch with your inner child and a time when you held no regard for fine glassware. Maybe it's the only way to truly emphasize the impact of downing a shot. Whatever your reason, the slammer is an attention grabber.

In its basest form, pour 1 oz. of tequila (Cuervo Gold, the tequila of choice recommended) and 7-Up or Sprite in a shooter glass (a skinny, long glass that can be found in most housewares stores). Cover the glass with a napkin with your hand on top. Slam the glass down on the table. Then, in one motion, remove the napkin from the glass and down the shot. Ahhh!!!
