If you think that downing shots at parties is getting to be a little bit too mainstream, we have the solution just for you; Deep-Fried Tequila Shots. You may proceed to swoon over the idea now. This is perfect to be served as a finger food during parties, and all your alcoholic friends will absolutely love it!
The ingenious recipe was created by Amy from Oh Bite It
, who loves experimenting around with new recipes and outrageous dishes such as this. The creator describes these lovely alcoholic treats as “a sweet and subtle tequila flavor all suspended inside a soaked until moist, melt in your mouth bite of sweet cake that tastes like funnel cake.”
You currently can't get this anywhere in the world now except for your own kitchen (or someone else's if you can persuade them), but don't be deterred by the thought of cooking as these little pieces of heaven doesn't require much effort or cooking skills.
Recipe for Deep-Fried Tequila Shots
Plain Sponge Cake
1. Cut up the sponge cake into small bite size cubes
2. Dip it quickly in tequila (the more you dip, the stronger it will be)
3. Deep fry them in a 350 Degree Celsius pot of oil
4. Cool and drain on paper towel
5. Dust icing sugar over and serve
For presentation sake, you could serve a few pieces of the nuggets in shot glasses rimmed with frosting and lime wedges on the side.
The best part about making this yourself is that you can personally adjust how much alcohol you want in your alcohol nuggets. You don't even have to use tequila! Go wild with other sorts of liquors like whiskey, cognac, vodka or even absinthe if you are feeling adventurous and wild.
For best results, consume one deep-fried tequila nugget with a tequila shot. Cheers! Om nom nom!
