Shotgun Shell ShotsTrue hunters, fishers and outdoorsmen who are passionate about their favorite university’s college sports are no stranger to tailgate parties and other occasions that call for a solid drink.

The CollegiateCamo family recently gathered to celebrate Christmas together, and in honor of our favorite activities – the great outdoors and college sports – we came up with our “Top 5 Drinks for Outdoorsmen” to share with the world! (Prepare yourself – there’s a lot of whiskey involved.)

Of course, the CollegiateCamo team wouldn’t be caught dead taking shots out of anything but shotgun shells. What are your favorite drinks for the great outdoorsman and college sports fan? Share your tips here!

1. Jägermeister

This German 70-proof herbal liqueur’s name literally translates to “hunt-master,” or more flexibly “gamekeeper” or “forest supervisor.” The logo is the head of a stag with a cross between its antlers – a reference to Saint Eustance, patron saint of hunting and trapping, and Saint Hubertus, patron saint of hunters. Introduced in 1935, this famous alcoholic beverage is well-known for its licorice-like flavor.

2. Buckshot (Shot)

1/3 Tequila Blanco
1/3 Jack Daniels
1/3 Bailey’s Irish Cream
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Mix Jack Daniels and tequila in a shot glass, then slowly pour the Bailey’s on top. Sprinkle fresh ground black pepper. Shoot!

3. Shotgun (Shot)

1 oz. Jim Beam bourbon whiskey
1 oz. Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey
1 oz Wild Turkey bourbon whiskey
Pour Jack Daniels and Jim Beam into shot glass, float Wild Turkey on top. Shoot!

4. Toasted Fisherman (Mixed Drink)

1/3 Crown Royal Canadian whiskey
1/3 Amaretto Almond Liqueur
1/3 Sweet & Sour Mix
1 splash 7-Up
Mix all ingredients over ice. Stir and serve with a cherry. Cast!

5. Deer Hunter (Mixed Drink)

2 oz. chilled Jagermeister
1 oz. vodka
3-5 oz. chilled root beer
1 squeeze of lemon
Pour Jagermeister and vodka over ice. Add root beer to taste, and polish it off with a squeeze of lemon. Ready, aim, fire!
