Gladiator (shooter)


Shot Glass

Glass Guide- Shot Glass

A Gladiator is a drop shot like the Irish Car Bomb. You pour the liqueurs into a shot glass, drop that glass into a larger glass filled with the mixers and "shoot" the entire drink. You want to be careful though, because the loose shot glass has been known to chip a few teeth over the years. Consider yourself warned.



  1. Pour the two liqueurs into a shot glass.
  2. Pour the soda and juice into an old-fashioned glass or other lowball glass.
  3. Drop the shot glass into the other glass and down the drink.
