The Perfect Way to Enjoy the Drink

Royal Flush Shot is a mesmerizing drink and is special in every way. Which makes it extremely important that you treat this royal drink in the most appropriate way possible. Here are a few things to keep in consideration:

Use The Right Glass

Some drinks just don’t feel right if not consumed in the glasses they’re meant to be consumed from. For this Royal Flush Shot, we recommend you use a Whiskey glass or a Rocks glass. Whiskey glasses are specially made for drinks like these. They somehow enhance the appearance and overall feel of the drink, which surprisingly enhances the taste of the drink, making you fall in love with it and want it more.

Pour A Small Amount

People tend to fill up the glasses to the mouth while drinking but the best way to drink is to take small sips. Especially when it comes to Royal Flush Shot, you must fill your glass only about 2 ounces each time to drink it the right way.

Taking small sips is recommended. Why? This is because this drink is a mix of various flavors and whiskeys. In order to get the aroma and whiff of each one, you must drink small sips of it.

Chill Your Drink

Like we’ve mentioned above, CHILL YOUR DRINK to enjoy its prime. Royal Flush Shot is not at all recommended to be consumed warm or at room temperature. It should be very chilled. Once you mix it up, you should place it in the freezer if there’s still some time to serve. Otherwise, make use of lots and lots of ice and serve it super chilled.

Another option is that you can use whiskey stones to cool the drink.
