Since I love experimenting with shot drinks, I’m always trying to create something unique and creative. That’s how I came up with the Jet Fuel Shot by mixing different ingredients. However, I’ve since discovered that others have already shared recipes for this drink before me.

I used jet fuel tea and the drink name based on it, but you can use any strong-brewed black tea you have on hand. If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, you can simply skip the vodka. Sometimes I omit it, to be honest, and other times I add it—it all depends on my mood. It’s a fun shot drink to try, offering opportunities to explore various flavors and experiment with different twists.
