Deep-fried tequila shots are real, and they're spectacular


Earlier this month, we learned that deep-fried booze was a beautiful reality at a fish and chips shop in England -- which is great, if, you know, you live in England. But lest you get your knickers in a bunch, Oh, Bite It! has emerged with a recipe allowing you to make deep-fried tequila at home. American innovation wins again.

Only five steps separate you from deep-fried boozy bliss. First: make an angel food cake (or, you know, buy one). Next, cube it up into poppable bites. After that, soak each cake cube in tequila, then deep-fry the cubes in oil until they're golden on all sides. Finally, sprinkle your shots with powdered sugar. Placing them all in an actual salt-rimmed shot glass is up to you, as is deep-frying the worm.
