Best Liquors for Shots in 2024

Welcome, shot enthusiasts and party-goers! As we step into 2024, it’s time to update our list of the best liquors for taking shots. Whether you’re hosting a gathering or looking to expand your palate, we’ve curated a selection of top-notch spirits that are sure to elevate your shot game this year. From classic favorites to exciting newcomers, there’s something for every taste. Let’s dive in!

Vodka:

Vodka remains a timeless choice for shots due to its versatility and smoothness. Look for premium brands like Belvedere, Grey Goose, or Ketel One for a clean and crisp shot. Infused vodkas are also gaining popularity, offering unique flavors like citrus, cucumber, or even chili for a spicy kick.

Tequila:

No shot list is complete without tequila! Opt for 100% agave tequila for the best experience. Brands like Don Julio, Patrón, or Casa Noble are excellent choices. For a twist, try reposado or añejo tequilas for a richer flavor profile. And of course, don’t forget about mezcal—its smoky undertones make for a memorable shot.

Whiskey:

Whiskey shots are for the bold. Bourbon lovers will appreciate the smooth sweetness of Maker’s Mark or Woodford Reserve. If you prefer something smokier, reach for a peaty Scotch like Lagavulin or Laphroaig. Japanese whiskies like Hibiki or Yamazaki offer a delicate yet complex shot experience.

Rum:

Plantation Rum XO 20TH ANNIV 80

Spice up your shot game with rum! Choose spiced rum for a shot bursting with flavor—Captain Morgan or Kraken are solid picks. For a smoother option, try aged rum such as Diplomático or Zacapa. Dark rum shots with a hint of caramel and vanilla are perfect for sipping.

Gin:

Gin shots are a trend on the rise. Seek out craft gins with botanical complexity like Monkey 47, Bombay Sapphire, or Hendrick’s. The herbal and floral notes make gin shots refreshing and sophisticated, especially when paired with a twist of lime.

Liqueurs:

For a sweeter shot experience, explore the world of liqueurs. Baileys Irish Cream, Kahlúa, or Amaretto are classic choices that go down smooth. These are perfect for dessert shots or mixing up creative concoctions.

Herbal Spirits:

Expand your horizons with herbal spirits. Jägermeister is a perennial favorite, known for its unique blend of herbs and spices. Chartreuse or Fernet-Branca offer more complex flavors that can be savored as shots.
