how to take a tequila shot the most festive way… with cinnamon sugar orange slices

mise en place prep of tequila shots with cinnamon sugar orange slices

today, I attended the millhouse holiday luncheon (that was originally maybe going to be a happy hour I believe, plus I’m the home bartendress, so I’m allowed to walk in with a bottle of tequila at 11:50 am. Also, I just came off of a bachelorette weekend in Key West, so let me tell you, baby shots of watered down tequila is TAME, mmmmkay?) I almost didn’t come to this christmas luncheon just because my travel day back from Key West yesterday was long, but I’m so glad I did because we’re starting a writers’ group at the millhouse! And, I’m always happy to share my favorite way how to take a tequila shot.

how to prep the tequila shots + chasers

[ can be prepped in any order ]

  • Put 5+ heaping teaspoons of granulated sugar in a smaller container with a lid, sprinkle on some cinnamon, stir with the tsp to combine. Repeat sprinkling on more cinnamon and stirring in until it reaches what you deem a happy mixture.
  • Cut up oranges first by slicing into thick rounds, then quartering those rounds, and then halving the quarters that look on the bigger side. Put in a container with a lid (or a serving dish you could put saran wrap over).
  • Go to grab the last of your bottle of Legado reposado tequila and become very unsure that it will be enough for the group. Pour tequila into a plastic squeeze bottle, add a healthy squirt of agave syrup, plus a splash of water, both to stretch your supply and so that you’re not serving people straight tequila on a tuesday midday. Others agreed it was smooth so approved!
