Leave it to the French to figure out a drop shot made with Cointreau, the country’s famed orange liqueur. Taking a cue from the classic Jäger Bomb (which has yet to be adopted by the Germans of Jäger’s own homeland), French drinkers looking to get amped and buzzed at the same time drop Cointreau into Red Bull, combining the two brand names into “Retreau” (pronounced “retro,” but—you know—with a French accent). The name is especially fitting, as the two ingredients miraculously recall the taste of that throwback childhood favorite, orange Skittles. The shot’s dual personalities make it perfect for any occasion—whether you’re trying to impress with your knowledge of worldly tipples while cutting loose, or you just want to shamelessly chug a drink that tastes like liquid candy.
