Ever wanted to enjoy mixed shots, but couldn’t be bothered going to the effort of actually pre-mixing? Well clearly someone at 7-Eleven has, because the convenience chain’s recently launched a range of dual-flavoured, ready-to-drink shooters named Sling Shots.
With an ABV of 16 percent, these pint-sized party starters aren’t exactly heavy hitters. However, priced at only 15RMB each, these yin yang shots boast an impressive mash-up of (artificial) flavours – suitable for when you need an energy hit that only neon colours and plenty of sugar can provide. We taste-tested four Sling Shots to see if they’re worth the hype – for science, and for you, our readers.
Side note: We tasted each of these little cups of joy without chilling them – because that’s how 7-Eleven sells them (and partly because we forgot to chill them), but our top tip would be to chuck ‘em in the fridge to enhance the experience.
Available for 14.90RMB each from any 7-Eleven around the city.
