We do not recommend this method of use for the rum, whiskey, vodka, gin, and tequila products; however some of our customers have had success with it. A drinker of straight shots will not get the alcohol bite he is accustomed to with an 80 proof drink. We advise that you explain that Premium Blend is excellent for mixed cocktails and invite them to sample a drink. The cordial line (Amore di Verano, Kafe Luna, and Royale line) can be served straight as a shooter or an aperitif. El Guitarron is also best served as a shot with a lime wedge and a salt rim, or as a floater on a premium margarita.
