⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Do shots get you drunk quicker?

Yes, they do. One shot of hard liquor has about the same alcohol as a can of beer. That’s a lot more alcohol by volume.

How can you avoid getting drunk on shots?

Go slow! The thing about shots is that you can down them in one gulp. It’s all too easy to consume far more alcohol than you meant to and to consume it faster than it hits you. Enjoy a shot and then wait a while before having another.

How many shots does it take to get drunk?

In general, it only takes about 3 shots to get you legally drunk. Be careful when enjoying these shots!
