    Hi, I am Josh Dubois. Today I am showing you how to make a bunch of different kinds of shots. Right now, we are going to make one of my personal favorite shots, the And One shot.

    This shot originated in the Midwest and was invented by a famous Midwestern Bartender named Kyle McGrath. So, what we are going to do here with this shot is we are going to mix, two parts Vodka, one part Melon, one part Blue Curacao and one part Goldschlager.

    And you are going to be dumping this shot in your Red Bull and I do say dump, because it is a basketball shot. Pour about that much Red Bull. I would say it is about four ounces of Red Bull and then you are going to start making the actual shot.

    You want to fill up your shaker with ice and you are going to pour in two ounces or a four count of Vodka, one ounce or a two count of Melon, one ounce or a two count of Blue Curacao, this gives it the nice Gatorade look Gatorade color, just a little bit more just for good measure.

    And this is the shot that can definitely be played around with, if we don’t have all the ingredients, it’s not really that important. The main importance is that it comes out looking kind of blue. Little bit of Goldschlager and let us see what we have got.

    Put the shaker tin on, turn it upside down, got that a nice, really, really nice blue color and this is going to make a lot of shots, this is a great shot, to line up and down the bar. And when you are doing this shot, what you want to do is, you want to take all the bar towels you have in the bar. Place them on the bar for the people to have, they need them for when they are done with the shot.

    So what you do is you take it and you strain it out, it’s going to be nice and blue, there you go, just like that. Then drop it in the Red Bull, take your shot and wave it around your head just like at an and one game and that’s how you make an And One Shot.
