Women are goal-oriented beings. When we set our sights on something, boy, you better get out of our way. Maybe it’s the glory. Maybe it’s the bragging rights. Maybe it’s the sweet, sweet, satisfaction of making that last checkmark on a long to-do list. No matter the reason, it’s hard to turn down a good challenge, especially with your best friends at your side.
We’ve compiled the bests signature shots in Scottsdale onto one ultimate shot challenge list. This challenge is meant to be done throughout the weekend (or else you will NOT have a good time) and will take you on an adventure through the best Scottsdale nightlife.
Finishing this shot challenge during your Scottsdale bachelorette weekend is an impressive feat. You may just want to add it to your professional resume, under “Certified: Bad B*tch”.
Ok, now that we’ve amped you up for it, here are our favorite party shots from the best bars in Scottsdale, and a few wildcards to keep you on your toes! Happy hunting!
Schmooze: Espresso shot
Well – we suppose you could start the morning with an alcoholic shot, but we are running a marathon, not a sprint. So we’re starting with an espresso shot! Schmooze is known to be a great place for both espresso shots and spirits, so we guess you can take your pick anyways. We recommend their espresso shot to get a swift caffeine kick in the butt that will pull you through the rest of the challenge.
