Shots are a great way to get everyone drinking together. They can be great for playing drinking games, celebrating occasions such as birthdays, stag dos, hen nights, or as a way of getting warmed up at the bar. Keep in mind when doing shots that, since the effects don’t kick in right away, you’ll want to be careful not to do too many before realizing the effect they have on you. Pace yourself so that you’re able to enjoy the night and, more importantly, remember it the next day. Gather with your friends and choose from our top ten round-up.
