There’s a reason shots and shooters are so popular. They are quick, easy and tempt the sweet tooth. Shots are more than straight from the bottle pours. They are creative liquid desserts. Many times we don’t even know what shot to ask for. We just want a shot of something, anything. What we really want is to melt away the work week so the weekend can finally begin.
So, slow down. Unwind. Let the weekend begin.
