A while back, I was sent some samples of ZAVVA shots to try and give my feedback. While the concept is nothing new, essentially two liquors in a shot glass with a partition, ZAVVA shots try to give it a local spin with its Asian-themed shots and the fact that the founder is Hong Kong bred and based. ZAVVA shots come in four flavours, Black Pearl (Coffee Liqueur & Vanilla Cream Liqueur), China White (Butterscotch Liqueur & Velvet Cream Liqueur), Jade Bomb (Herbal Liqueur & Energy Drink Liqueur) and Red Joy (Raspberry Liqueur & Velvet Cream Liqueur). When I received my Black Pearl and China White, I was slightly apprehensive as the description sounds sickeningly sweet and let’s face it, I’m at the age where I don’t do shots anymore being an old fuddy duddy. So when I finally tried it over the weekend, I was quite surprised to find that it wasn’t as sweet as I anticipated. Don’t get me wrong, I tried the Black Pearl and it’s definitely a sweet shot along the lines of a b52 while my fellow tasters tried the China White and said it’s almost like you’re drinking a dessert in a shot. But it’s an acceptable sort of sweet and I was pleasantly surprised. So if you’re in the mood for some affordable shots head on over to 7-Eleven where they retail for $20 a shot or in 4-packs for $69.90. And as always, be sure to drink responsibly!
