There are two types of people you'll come across once you're 21 and start drinking. There are people who are just trying to get as drunk as possible as fast as they can, and there are the people who like to take their time and savor their drink.

One of the biggest differences between these two types of people is that one actually enjoys the taste of alcohol, and the other just uses it as a means to an end. This usually means that those trying to get drunk as fast as they can don’t really care what they’re drinking and just slam whatever shot they can, following it with a chaser. Those kinds of people are exactly who TakeShots is targeting with their product.

TakeShots came up with a product that allows you to take a shot that's immediately followed by your chaser of choice. This is done by filling up their specialized straw with your liquor of choice, sticking the straw in your chaser and drinking.

It seems like a great idea when you first think about it, but then reality kicks in. You end up putting more effort into drinking the liquor by sucking it up through the straw than just taking a shot, and it doesn’t fix the issue for those that hate the taste of alcohol. If anything, it makes it worse for them because they’ll be tasting the alcohol for a longer time before reaching the chaser.

I think this is a great product for those who don’t mind the taste of alcohol, but if the goal is to make taking shots easier I think it missed the mark.

Check out these TikToks to see the product in action and see for yourself if this is something you’d like to try.
