So apparently this another one of my Future Mother-In-Law "Italian traditions" she is announcing (and my fiance is all over every single one of them, unfortunately, including the Jordan almonds) … shots passed to guests as they arrive at the reception.
I am fine with this, I guess, but she suggested Amaretto and Frangelica for shots. Does this not sound disgusting?
Do you guys have any suggestions on tastier shots?

A take on the Limoncello:
Citrus Vodka (Stoli or Kettle one are my favs)
Fresh lemon juice
Shake well w/ lots of ice strain and serve
We use to serve these all the time at the bar I use to work at.

I vote for limoncello as well. Amaretto and Frangelica sound like after dinner shots to me (is there such a thing? lol). Does she really want your guests doing shots as they walk in the door? That’s a new one to me!

That chocolate cake shot sounds interesting! YUM.
Limoncello would be good because it would be more on the refreshing side and people will have empty bellies.
KateMW, I know, it’s odd. My Future Mother-In-Law doesn’t even drink and she is pushing for these shots. It’s just a family tradition, I guess. *sigh*

Oh my goodness, the chocolate cake shot is the BEST ever. I was skeptical the first time I had it (because it didn’t look chocolate-y at all), but it is soooooooo good.

i think Frangelico is more of a sipping drink, than a shot.
Amaretto I’ve always mixed with something too….
I’d find something traditional- like the limoncello.
The cake one sounds yumtastic, but a little much the moment you walk in.

I like red headed sl*ts and buttery nipples, but I suppose those aren’t really wedding-appropriate… =)
Can you suggest to her to put a shot at each person’s place, and everyone can take it together when the FOB gives his speech? That way he can explain the tradition to those who might not be aware of it. I’ve seen a picture of it (maybe on Weddingbee?), with a little note on top of the shot glass asking guests to wait to take the shot until the toast.
