Shot of the Week: The Workaholic




Via Dustin Dooling

We all have that friend or relative who is always on the clock. Tightly wound and high strung, the workaholic can’t handle a moment of inactivity. Somehow these very same people always seem to make the best drinking buddies. A quick shot and beer-chugging chaser and then it’s back to the grind.

In honor of these men and women who keep the hamsters wheel spinning while the rest of us simply spin our wheels, I present The Workaholic. This shot(or shots really) is no-nonsense, because ain’t no one got time for that.

It starts with Jameson Irish Whiskey, an ode to the Irish immigrant workers who helped built this great nation (and lets face it, who works harder in a bar than the Irish?). In quick succession a shot of Moonshine follows. After all, who worked harder than those Anarchist bootleggers who stuck it to the man and kept working even when it was against the law?

Lastly, a strong dose of Redbull—A chaser to get those workaholics back up on their feet. Someone’s got to do some damn work around here, ya know!

1 ounce Jameson’s Irish Whiskey

1 ounce Moonshine (in my case Buffalo Trace White Dog Mash #1)

2 ounce Red Bull

Three glasses. Three shots. One job—enjoy!
