Chicago Fire Shot
Is there anything better than an amazing, fun book? How about if it’s only .99 cents?!
With the strong sense of loyalty and sisterhood in this book, plus the background of Chicago—which is almost like a character itself within the book—a dainty cocktail wasn’t doing the trick for me. I needed something with a bit more of a kick… and boy do we get it in this fun, tequila shot that seems right up our heroine, Simone’s alley!
The Chicago Fire Shot is my own little spin on a classic shot. But be prepared, because this one’s not for the faint of heart! How much spice you add to your shot will be dependent on your mood and taste buds.
I recommend having a wedge of lime and a tortilla chip ready to chase this spicy shot—because in my experience, water wasn’t enough to mellow out the burn!
~ 1 to 2 ounces of silver tequila (based on how big of a shot you want)
~ 1 squeeze of a lime wedge
~ 4-6 dashes of Tabasco sauce
~ 1 lime wedge (to chase)
~ 1 salted tortilla chip (to chase)
Directions: (This is an easy one, babes!)
- Shake your tequila and lime juice over ice and pour into a shot glass.
- Add Tabasco sauce to taste (I used 6 dashes and my mouth was on fire!)
- Shoot that sucker down and chase it by sucking on the lime wedge and biting the tortilla chip!
Cheers to Sisterhood,
Haven’t read Wild Child by Audrey Carlan yet?
Twice my life changed in a single day.
The first was when I lost my parents. Hand in hand I walked with my big sister up the steps of Kerrighan House, a foster home for girls. We were lucky to be met with open arms and a house filled with children just like us. Children who’d lost everything. From that day forward, we were raised as one big family. Our bonds of sisterhood were strengthened through shared experience, pain, sacrifice, and love. Sisters not by blood, but by choice.
The second day my life changed was on the worst day of my adult life. My boyfriend broke up with me via text. My sleazy boss hit on me, forcing me to quit a job I desperately needed. And the cherry on top, was getting pulled over by an FBI Agent. Little did I know, he’d also save my life that night.
From the moment we met, Agent Fontaine wouldn’t dare let me out of his sight. And between his alpha ways, kind brown eyes, and heroism, I was lost to the man who hid behind his job. But this agent had a rule: never fall for a woman you’ve saved.
Yet I wasn’t just any woman. I was known among my sisters for taking risks and dreaming big. I was the wild child of the group. We were raised to appreciate every day as the gift it was, and not let anything stand in our way. The more I got to know the brooding, serious FBI man, the more I realized maybe it was my duty to save him.
