Colossal Shot Kings competition

Pernod Ricard-owned Olmeca Tequila has crowned the Pineapple Express Tequila Shot Tail, created by a group of Russian bartenders, as the winner of the Colossal Shot Kings competition.

The contest, which is the first ever crowd-sourced shot ritual contest in the world, challenged teams of bartenders to evolve the Tequila shot ritual.

Team Russia impressed the judges with its creation of the Pineapple Express Tequila Shot Tail, which was made with Olmeca Tequila, pineapple, lemon and sparks of flaming cinnamon. The shot was inspired by the 2008 film of the same name, starring James Franco and Seth Rogan.
