Our Hot Damn Shot Recipe Will Make You Say, ‘Hot Damn!’
The hot damn shot is a four ingredient shot made from vodka, rum, whisky and orange juice. And although it has a few ingredients, it’s simple to make and you can use the cheapest stuff you have on hand and you won’t really even notice.
A tasty way to get by with the ‘cheap stuff.’ And no, this isn’t hot temperature wise, and nothing flaming.
- 1 ounce Vodka
- 1 ounce Rum
- 1 ounce Whiskey
- 1 ounce Orange Juice
- Grab your shaker and fill it half way with ice.
- Add the vodka, rum and whiskey to the shaker.
- Shake a few times to chill the liquors.
- Place a strainer on top of the shaker and strain the ingredients into your shot glass.
- Top off the shots with orange juice.
- Shoot the shot!
This recipe makes two, 2 ounce shots. So make sure you are using 2 ounce shot galsses for this.
How to Make Hot Damn Shot?
You’ll need a shaker with some ice in order to chill this shot. In the shaker, add all the liquors, rum, vodka and whiskey to the shaker and shake for a minute.
Then strain the ingredients into a shot glass. Top off with orange juice for a slight layered effect and serve.
This is a shot and so it’s meant to be downed in one gulp. Then say, “hot damn” for full effect!
Hot Damn Shooter Ingredients
- Whiskey (American)
- Orange Juice
About the Ingredients
Seeing this is a shot and is a highly mixed one at that, using quality liqueur isn’t an issue. In fact, any well liquor will do just fine. This is a great bar shot as you don’t need to spend a lot to make one. So just use whatever you have.
The only thing is don’t use Scotch for this, it’s meant to be made with an American type whisky like Jim Beam or Jack Daniel’s.
The best alternative to this drink would be to add the actual DeKuyper® Hot Damn!® Cinnamon Schnapps Liqueur rather than the whiskey for a warmer overall flavor.
I must admit, I haven’t tried this yet, but it just seems like it would work well. So if you happen to get a chance to try it before I do, please let me know and I’ll add your feedback here!
What Tools Are Needed?

Honestly, when you want to get wasted! These have 3 types of liquor in them, so like a Long Island Ice Tea, they can sneak up on you pretty quickly!
