The Tapeworm Shot

There's no other way to put it... the tapeworm shot is disgusting. This isn't something you are going to enjoy as the drinker, but you might just enjoy watching someone else squirm before shooting it back.
Tapeworm shot


  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 teaspoon mayonnaise (from a squeezable container)
  • Ground pepper
  • Dash of hotsauce

Tools & Equipment

How to Make

  1. Pour the vodka into a shot glass.
  2. Add a dash of hot sauce
  3. Sprinkle a dash of ground pepper
  4. Squeeze around a tablespoon of mayonnaise into the middle of a shot to resemble a tapeworm
  5. Enjoy… I guess…


There’s no history here. There’s no class. This is simply put a novelty shot or “dare drink”.

But, you’d be surprised how many times we’ve been asked to make a Tapeworm Shot while working behind a bar. Most of the times it’s for someone who has lost a bet or is trying to impress their friends.
