“Everyone has a tequila shot story”, said Paul. He was right.
I certainly have a tequila shot story or two, but I like to think that I am unique in that my experience with tequila shots has not been entirely dreadful. I seem to have found a way to see tequila not for her association with regret, but rather as an alcoholic mistress who is delicious when consumed correctly and creatively, and just cruel enough to keep things interesting. Moreover, I have found that when it comes to bringing your game to life, an interesting alcoholic beverage can do more than just get a girl drunk enough to plant one on you. The best tequila story is the one that allows you to build attraction by being unique, fun and seductive. Yes, you can pick up a girl with tequila.
Whilst tequila shots are traditionally taken either alone or with a side shot of sangrita, it has become common practise for individuals outside of Mexico to do follow the “lick-shoot-suck” method for downing tequila shots: licking lime off of one’s index finger, taking the tequila shot, then chasing by biting into a lime.
In some areas of the world, however, there exists an entirely more wonderful form of the tequila shot.
Seduction and the Tequila Shot – Get Her Attracted, Not Drunk!
Here is how you prepare a tequila shot that will keep her stuck on you for the rest of the night – and remember everything in the morning.
Gather your ingredients:
- Tequila Oro (gold)
- Large Orange, sliced (1 orange = approx 10 tequila shots)
- Sprinkle cinnamon onto each orange slice.
- Pour tequila into the shot glasses.
- Rest each orange slice on the rim of a shot glass and serve.
To get the party started, drink the tequila shot, then eat the cinnamon-covered orange slice. Salud!
Why This Tequila Shot Rocks
First of all, it is different. Many people have never heard of this way of drinking tequila shots, but they are sure to love it. I have even met girls who claim to detest tequila shots (or does tequila detest the person?), but experience a change of heart after trying this variant of the common party shot.
I find that this method of tequila shot goes down easily with little to no need for another beverage to serve as a chaser. This is important when it comes to pickup and seduction, as the easiest justification for isolation by far is “hey, let’s go for a drink”. Women love originality, and rather than ordering the standard lager or vodka, this drink gives you another way to distinguish yourself from the other guys who are trying to pick her up.
As with any liquor, cheaper and lower-quality tequila will be a bit tougher to put down, but I have never had a brand of tequila that was so horrible that I could not handle an orange/cinnamon tequila shot of it. “Malarkey” to the old fashioned mentality of buying expensive drinks to pick up a girl. My experience has shown that even low-shelf tequila can be made acceptable when served in this way…and that includes many a €1 tequila shot, Monday through Thursday at O’Malley’s Irish Pub in Salzburg, my first ever “home base” for meeting girls.
I love this shot not only because it tastes delicious, but because it comes with stories, experience and culture. As we mentioned whilst discussing beer brands, it is always a fun addition to a date or party experience to play the role of alcohol ambassador, and this is no different when you are picking up a girl in a bar or club. This truth applies to any other personal recipes you might have under your sleeve. So consider that when planning a first date with that new girl or guy, or, better still, when preparing for the post-date bounce back to your kitchen.
