On this week’s Bit by a Fox Podcast, we’re talking about Shots! Shots! Shots! And the occasional shooter. They’re never a good idea….Or are they?
Many of us have lots of feelings about shots and shooters and visceral, albeit, patchy memories associated with those little devils. How did the shot even come to be? And how have the trends evolved through the years, and what are people shooting dirty nowadays?
This Week’s Recipe is inspired by my favorite “Bartender’s Handshake” – a miniature daiquiri adorably called a snaquiri. It originated with bartender Karin Stanley at Dutch Kills in Queens, New York about 8 years ago and it’s guaranteed the best shooter around. It is meant to be gulped in one fell swig.
Snaquiri – served in a mini coupe or cordial glass
1 oz dry white rum
½ oz fresh lime juice
¼ oz simple syrup
Garnish: lime wheel
Add all ingredients to an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled. Strain into the glass. Garnish with lime wheel. Shoot that Snaq!
