Best Answer - Chosen by Voters
Shots are usually a stronger percentage and thicker / denser form of alcohol,
as there is less in a shot glass than a cup or glass, people are more likely to
drink a comparable quantity in one "shot" or "gulp".
RESPONSIBLY drinking alcohol LEGALLY for many years.
Because you're drinking the shot in one gulp instead of slowly drinking the alcohol. You're also drinking it much faster. Therefor, you get drunk faster.
a high concentration of alcohol consumed quickly is why it gets you drunk so fast.
Because you drink them straight up instead of just sipping them?
