If you think you’ve tasted the grossest shot, you haven’t tried Jeppson’s Malört Liqueur yet.
Malört’s recipe comes from a Swedish wormwood-flavored liqueur. It packs a punch at 70 proof, and has found a cult following in Chicago.
Of its challenging taste, Cracked.com writes,
Trading shots of Jeppson’s Malört has been a popular bartender’s handshake in Chicago for some time (similar to how industry folks in San Francisco throw back Fernet Branca). But more recently, Chicagoans have begun tricking their friends into trying the disgusting liqueur, then snapping photos of their reaction face. It’s come to be known as #malortface, and it’s hilarious.
