    Hi, I am Josh Dubois and today I am showing you how to make a bunch of different kinds of shots and right now I am going to show you how to make a Soco and Lime shot. Now, this is pretty, pretty easy but I am going to tell you a little bit about, why I like this shot so much.

    Now, it is just really, it is all sounds, Soco, Southern Comfort Lime juice, now this is one where you pretty much always have to use SoCo, you don t want to use any other kind of, whiskey because SoCo does have a distinctive taste to it, and if somebody orders SoCo and Lime, they expect it to be Southern Comfort.

    So, what you are going to do, is you are going to take your mixing glass, fill it with ice, lots of ice, ice is the bartender s best friend because it melts liquor into water and makes you get more for your money, for your money, not the customer s money.

    So, this one, I am going to show you basically the reason why I like this one so much is because you can basically, if you are making this drink in a bar, pour in one shot of Southern Comfort, so, you are spending, the bar is spending one shot equivalent of Southern Comfort and you are selling two shots, so two shots of Southern Comfort.

    So, you pour in two ounces, one, two, three, four. Now, that is much as if I would have poured Southern Comfort all the way to the brim here. So, in your inventory, you are selling one shot. You are losing one shot, but you are selling two. This is why it is such a good money maker, because the rest is lime juice which costs next to nothing and so, you are going to fill up the rest with lime juice.

    And you really got to squeeze sometimes with these little things. Alright, next, cap it, shake it and hopefully you will turn one shot of liquor into two shots. Just like that, and that s how you make a Soco and Lime shot. Next we are going to show you how to make a Stock Market Crash.
