Give it your best shot. Both in life and liquor. You see, adulting is hard and some days can get worse than others. Not to put a damper on your current lifestyle but I think it's okay to let loose once in a while. And the best way to go about it is by surrounding yourself with people you love and... shots. 

 

Tequila and vodka can do the trick too, but wait till you try Alice in wonderlands or hot damns. They will knock your socks off, take away the edges and leave you with happy memories and a delicious aftertaste. 

 

Keep scrolling for a list of 10 amazing shots you can order to get the party started.

You can also swap club soda with coconut water and garnish with nutmeg, for extra sweetness.
