Shots & Shooters

Tipsy Bartender has so many shot recipes, jello shot recipes, and pudding shot recipes, it’s like the Wild West out here.

The difference between shots and shooters is slim, but significant. A shot is typically pure alcohol, while a shooter is sort of a miniature mixed drink. You often find shooters in the taller, thinner glasses.

“Shots” of liquor have been around since the 1600s, while shooters came around in the 70s (thanks, disco).

While you might have a single shot of some high-end liquor on a special occasion, shooters are traditionally meant for…well, getting tipsy.

Where Shots and Shooters Came From

Back in the Disco Days, people started to loosen their ties and try fancy new things (drugs).

Clubs saw an opportunity to create colorful, sugary shooters filled with cheaper liquors. They figured some rail vodka and simple syrup would have gone a long way with those crowd, if they could give it a fancy name.

Turns out, they were a hit.

Since then, shooters have evolved into the wildest, most insane creations you can think of! At Tipsy Bartender, we’ve got a jelly bean shot recipe, a jellyfish shot, a bong water shot, a Butterfinger shot, a peanut butter cup shot, pudding shot recipes, jello shot recipes, and so many others.

You’ll have to see what those are for yourself…

Of course, shots and shooters have evolved over time. Today, you can get a shot inside a beer or a larger drink, called a “bomb.” Or you can take it back to the good old days and throw back some straight whiskey.

Whether you came here for a Jägerbomb or a straight shot of something stiff, you can make any of these with just a few ingredients at home. We’ll find a crazy shots recipe for you no matter what alcohol you prefer.

Learn how to make jello shots, pudding shots, tequila shots, vodka shots, shooters and countless others.

Stay tipsy, but be sure to drink responsibly. Shoot your shot!
