Grandma's Apple Pie Shots

My senior year of college, I attended a Halloween party hosted by several friends who played on my school’s Ultimate Frisbee team. As I walked in the door, my friends–clad in their zombie makeup and corn-syrup blood, dressed as ghouls or dead Disney princesses or pieces of bacon–gathered around me.

They cornered me, grabbed me by the shoulders, sat me in a chair, and chanted, “Come on Becca, don’t be shy! Have some Grandma’s Apple Pie!” They tilted back my head and opened my mouth while I braced myself for the worst. But, to my surprise, this wasn’t the hellish experience that I anticipated; what flowed onto my reluctant tongue was nothing short of heavenly.

Apparently a long-running frisbee tradition, Grandma’s Apple Pie Shots are an interactive drink that require multiple coordinated instigators and a willing participant. They’re also shockingly delicious.
