4 shots out of 5
This being a Leap Year I am "almost" at my 1/3 of a year mark! I can't believe it, in 12 more days, I'll hit that mark. I must say that I have tried sooo many new cocktails during that time and sooo glad that I did! I have a few new favorite cocktails from the many I've done so far, and predict that I will have a good amount more by the time this year is done.
I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5. I'm not a big "shooter" lady, I'd rather sit my here with a regular sized cocktail in my hand to enjoy at the speed I like. Also, I feel that I need to judge these shooters a little different. Reason being, you get it all in one big sip. You can't sip and sip and sip to keep reminding yourself of the flavor. That being said, I don't think shooters are solely meant to taste amazingly good. I think more of the reason people order shooters is to get the job done faster..........get that quick shot of alcohol to get you going. I think I need to be a little more lenient on shooters (judging-wise) in general for the reasons I named above.
Here is the recipe for a Purple Hooter:
- 2/3 shot vodka
- 1/6 shot Chambord
- 1/6 shot lime juice
In a mixing glass add ice, vodka, Chambord and lime juice. Stir up all of the ingredients real well so that your mixture turns as purple as it can be. Strain your mixture into a shot glass.

Here's to a pretty good shot. I think taking tonight's shot would have been a lot more fun with a group of friends to cheers with. On that note......
