There are several methods to delight in tequila as a shot, and they are provided here without excessive commentary (although feel complimentary to comment, dear reader).

Lick, Sip, Suck” (also understood as “Training Wheels”).

The most usual way to shoot tequila in the United States is typically described as the “Lick, Sip, Suck” technique:.

A shot of tequila is served with salt and a lime wedge (“training wheels”).
Lick a little area on the side of your hand in the area in between your thumb and forefinger.
Pour a little bit of salt in the space. (The saliva helps the salt stick to your skin.).
Using the same hand, select up a lime wedge and hold it in between your thumb and forefinger. You will certainly be drawing the juice from the lime, so make sure the juice side is dealing with outside.
Utilizing the opposite hand, get a shot of tequila.
Lick the salt off your hand, drink the entire shot of tequila, and draw the juice from the lime.
Some facilities might rim the shot glass with salt so you do not have to lick your hand.

Cool.

Tequila can also be delighted in as a shot by drinking it – or gulping it – “neat” (without accompaniment). Numerous tequila bars will immediately serve it cool unless you will certainly ask for a lime and salt.

Sangrita. In Mexico, and at some tequila bars, tequila is delighted in with a drink called “sangrita.” Sangrita is a juice blend of tomatoes, orange juice, fresh lime juice, onions, salt and hot chili peppers. A sip of tequila is “chased after,” or followed, by a sip of sangrita.

Cooled or over ice.

Some like their tequila cold, and there are two alternatives.

Put 1 oz of tequila into a shaker filled with a few ice. Shake and pressure into a shot glass and enjoy.
Put 1oz of tequila in a rocks glass with a couple of ice. Sip and take pleasure in.
Both techniques will certainly add water and slightly water down the tequila.

Body shot.

A body shot requires a partner. This individual ought to be a prepared participant.

Your partner holds a lime wedge in between his or her teeth, with the juice side facing outward.
Pour salt on an exposed part of your partner’s body (in public this is frequently done on the belly, neck, chest, etc.).
Lick the salt off the body part, shoot the tequila, then suck the lime from your partner’s mouth.
There are other methods of doing a body shot (google it, or utilize your imagination).

Seasoned shots.

Tequila is typically utilized to blend mixed drinks, and the same holds true for shots. Shots are available in all flavors, from raunchy to sweet to velvety to tart. Some are best drunk and some are best when gulped. You can typically determine in between sip vs. shoot from the name alone!
