365 Things to Do in Memphis #31: Do a Grizz Shot

Posted by Holly Whitfield | January 31st 2012 770 3

Even if the Grizzlies don't make all of their shots, you can still take yours. Assignment #31 is to do a pre-game Grizz Shot at South of Beale.

Grizzlies Shot, Memphis, Tenn.

For as long as I've been able to legally drink, I've had two rules: 1.) No shots on school nights, and 2.) No blue drinks. The Grizzlies shot is both a shot and blue – bright, shocking neon blue.

Bartender Daniel described it to me as "like a lemon drop, but blue". He's mostly right – it's sweet, a little lemony and very definitely blue. It also tastes almost exactly like a blue Fla-Vor-Ice. The $3 shot is served all the time, but I recommend doing one on game day, either before or after you head to the FedExForum.
