You know about the Milk and Cookie Shot. You may even love it. But you don't love waiting in lines for it, which's why we found a bunch of equally outrageous shots to try at bars around NYC, all minus the wait, and plus them actually having booze in them. Like a shot should.
HARRY POTTER SHOT
Barcelona Bar (click here for address and info)
One of the only places in NYC that legitimately specializes in shots, this dive offers a menu of more than 100, including a selection based on pop culture references, like the movie Top Gun and infamous White House intern “Monica Lewinsky”. What you came here for, though, is the Harry Potter. The bartender will throw on a sorting hat and a striped Gryffindor scarf, and awesomely ignite your shot of citrus-flavored vodka using a “magic wand”. Suck it, butter beer.
