Shooters Bursting With Flavor

Start your #AbsolutNights by getting experimental with your shooters. 

The shooter

Across the world, shooters are considered the perfect bite-sized party-starter to share with friends. Previously reserved mostly for the college bar, they’re the most social of drinks – especially when ordered in rounds. That hasn’t changed – the college bar remains the ideal place to enjoy shots with your pals, but the drink’s appeal has broadened significantly in recent years.

Thanks to the craft cocktail movement, the shooter has been elevated to more sophisticated grounds – 30ml drinks that are worthy of any house party or soiree that you’d like to liven up. Just like the longer cocktails, these new twists on shooters can be shaken, stirred, blended, layered or simply poured. So, stir up a storm and take your house party to the next level with these fun, tasty recipes.
