    13 Shots You Have To Be Crazy To Take

    Flames, scorpions, and other unorthodox ingredients make these shots for daredevils only. Kids, don't try this at home.

    1. Naga Chilli Vodka

    Officially classified as the world’s hottest vodka due to the heat of chili peppers added to the 40% alcohol.

    The bottle reads, "Are you insane? This bottle is full of pain." Bottoms up.

    2. The Flaming Lamborghini

    This tower of terror, also known as "The Waterfall", is composed of four different components. It contains one shot kahlua, one shot Bailey's Irish Cream, one shot Blue Curacao, and lastly a shot of Sambuca.

    Once lit, you quickly drink it down with a straw at the base of the flaming tower:

    What could go wrong?

    3. Scorpion Vodka

    This specialty vodka comes in either a 70ml shot or a 250ml bottle, and the scorpion is said to give it a nice "woody" flavor.


    Yes! You can eat the scorpion; stinger and all!

    5. The Eggermeister Shot

    What could makes Jägermeister easier to shoot down? A pickled egg. Cut the top off a pickled egg and take out the inside yolk. Pour half a shot of Jager in a shot glass, place the egg inside, and then fill the egg with more Jager.


    The manliest of beverages!

    7. Pop Rocks Flaming Shot

    Made with Pop Rocks candy, simple syrup, pomegranate juice, and gin. You can also put the drink under UV light for a glowing effect; tonic water glows crystal blue and Rockstar glows green. See how to make it here.


    Sprinkle the Pop Rocks over the top for an even more impressive flaming effect:

    9. The Tapeworm Shot

    Appropriately named for the effect created when you add a bit of mayonnaise to vodka. Simply add in the liquids, sprinkle with pepper, then top the shot glass with a thin layer of mayonaise. Really...don't try this one.

    It apparently doesn't smell too good either.

    10. Flaming Dr. Pepper Shot

    The tamest of flaming shots, but with the added bonus of chugging a glass of beer. All you need is a half shot of amaretto liqueur, added to a shot of 151 proof rum, plus a glass of light beer to drop it into!

    But even the most basic of flaming shots should never be underestimated:

    11. The Backdraft Shot

    This shot that has an impressive preparation and presentation. Named after the phenomenon which occurs in some fire situations, this drink produces a similar condition on purpose using flammable alcoholic drinks and an enclosing container, such as an upside down pint glass.

    The phsyics behind this shot,as well as the prep, can be found here.

    12. New Jersey Turnpike Shot

    When the bartender wipes down the bar and squeezes the rag into a shotglass. The most disgusting non-alcoholic shot ever invented.

    It will look something like this:

    13. Hot Mexican Hooker Shot

    Horribly named, and horrible tasting.

    Fill shot with Cuervo and tabasco then fill to the brim with tuna fish juice.

    Shots, anyone?
