South African shooters at their best!

Celebrate this Heritage Day with five of our favourite local shooters.

We South Africans are so diverse in our culture as well as our beverages. Surprise your patrons this Heritage Day with these simple, proudly South African shots. You can get these ingredients at your nearest Liquor City, which offers a wide range of liqueurs, whiskeys and more.

The Melktert

You will need:

  • One 375ml bottle of vodka
  • As simple as it sounds, all you need to do is pour both ingredients into a shot glass – and good luck remembering the rest of your night!
  • One 300ml tin of condensed milk
  • Half of a 375ml evaporated milk tin
  • Ground cinnamon

Once you have all your ingredients, pour them in a bottle that you can easily use to shake well. Once you have mixed all the ingredients well, pour into shot glasses. Sprinkle each shot with the ground cinnamon and serve chilled.

Sowetan Toilet

You will need:

  • ¾ banana liqueur
  • ¼ Amarula Cream
  • Nachtmusik chocolate liqueur

Start by pouring three parts banana liqueur into a shot glass, then one part Amarula and top it off with a drop of Nachtmusik.

The Blind Bat

 You will need:

  • ½ shot tequila
  • ½ Stroh rum

As simple as it sounds, all you need to do is pour both ingredients into a shot glass – and good luck remembering the rest of your night!
