There are many shooters out there and each area will have local favorites, these are just some of the more universal ones - old and new. Some bars will serve a lot of shots on high-traffic party nights and more often for younger crowds so it's best to be on the ball.

Shots are often ordered by a group of friends and in this situation people will often order the same shot for the entire party, making your job easier. Line up all of the shot glasses needed on the bar and pour the ingredients in each glass, one at a time, continuing with each ingredient until all of the shots are complete. In the case of shaken shooters, pour enough of each liquor in the shaker and just strain right down the line of glasses.
