A Chuck Norris Shot is an easy-to-prepare shot recipe with a strong impact. The main ingredients are UV Cherry Vodka, Liquid Ice, and your favorite hot sauce (if you want an extra kick).

The drink was named as a tribute to the legendary martial artist/actor Carlos Ray “Chuck” Norris. [1] It’s known that the drink is smooth like a pistol with an impact of a shotgun. 

What Does It Taste Like?

It has the fruity sweet taste of cherry and Liquid Ice flavors with the spicy notes from the hot sauce. One of the main ingredients is UV Cherry Vodka, so it’s a given. 

The cherry flavor can be blended with your favorite choice from the five Liquid Ice energy drink flavors. Supreme Classic, Arctic Berry, Cherry-Licious, Citrus Pop, and Arctic Zero are the flavors you can mix with UV Cherry Vodka, and yes, all combinations are perfect.

Is There An Alternative For The Liquid Ice Energy Drink?

Yes, there is. We recommend these three brands as an alternative for your Chuck Norris Shot cravings.

Rockstar Energy Drink

Rockstar Energy Drink

This drink has little to no difference in flavors from the Liquid Ice. Though this one is more powerful and has higher caffeine content, it also minimizes your calories. A good option if you’re on a diet.

Monster Energy Drink

Relatively the same taste and caffeine content as the first two, but this drink has 2-times more calories than the Rockstar.

Nos Energy Drink

This one is pretty available nationwide; though you might find the taste not as refined as the first options, it’s still worth trying.

Well, if you’re only looking to feel a little tipsy, 2-4 shots are good. For an average person, 5-9 shots are enough to make you fully drunk. 

But if you’re looking for a ‘Roundhouse kick’ level of drunkenness, ten or more shots are enough to make you forget everything for a while.


What do you serve a Chuck Norris Shot in?

We prefer it to be served in a large glass or a Rocks glass, just like in the recipe above. Other variations of Chuck Norris Shot, like the 151 rum, should be served in a standard shot glass.

How many calories are in a Chuck Norris Shot?

A Chuck Norris Shot is around 160 calories. A full shot glass (1.5 fluid ounce) of UV Cherry Vodka has around 100 calories, and 4 ounces of Liquid Ice is around 60 calories. 

Who invented the Chuck Norris shot?

There’s no official statement on who invented the recipe, but it is rumored that it originated in Fargo, North Dakota, and is popular in Grand Forks college bars in ND.

Are there other shots with the Chuck Norris name?

Yes, there is, and it’s much stronger than the Chuck Norris Shot. It’s called the “Chuck Norris Roundhouse Kick To The Face.” Aside from these, there are other variations of the Chuck Norris Shot with different ingredients.

Final Thoughts

Don’t be deceived. The Chuck Norris Shot may seem like a normally sweet and spicy mixed drink, but you’ll find yourself drunk on the ground with too many shots. 

If you’re looking for a seriously strong cocktail that kicks, then this is the perfect time to make this killer recipe. 

As always, drink responsibly!
