If you didn’t already have “Love Shack” stuck in your head, get ready. Created in the 1970s by a bartender/B-52’s superfan, this eye-catching drink isn’t your typical shooter.

So throw on “Love Shack” (or “Rock Lobster” if you, like this drink’s creator, are a real die-hard fan) and get your fill of guilty pleasures.
