August is here to spread the magic in Jaipur. As we know that cocktails are as special in this season as ever. Cocktails are something which you always have whenever you go out with your friends or colleagues and want to have some relaxing chats and fun. While partying in full groove you might need more. What are we talking about here? Well we are talking about Shooters!!

Shooters are short, potent drinks that are mixed with a combination of spirits, liqueurs and non-alcoholic mixers while shots only contain ingredients that are alcoholic. Both shooters and shots are served in shot glasses and consumed with one tip of the glass. On high traffic party nights and mainly the young crowd prefers shooter shots.

We’re sharing some of your favorite shooter shots’ recipes over here.
