A shot being poured into a glass
Skip The Premium Bottles If You're Going To
Order Shots

Top-shelf alcohol may sound classy for a night out, but ordering shots of it may leave your wallet feeling sore.
Head bartender of Chicago restaurant Indienne Chetan Gangan told Insider that ordering premium liquor, such as top-shelf tequila, defeats the whole purpose of the drink.
A good drink is meant to be savored without rushing through it. A shot is something you are supposed to drink quickly, so doing shots of top-shelf liquor is a waste.
A cheaper or standard alcohol, one that is made for straight consumption rather than encouraging you to savor it, is a much more acceptable choice.
