University of Nevada, Las Vegas Rebels (Las Vegas, NV): Tequila Shot

Now we are getting down to the serious drinking part of this bracket madness. When you think of Las Vegas, you think of partying on The Strip, gambling, and the ubiquitous phrase “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” Our immediate idea to honor the Vegas lifestyle was to do a simple shot of tequila. And then we found this fitting piece of local news that made this an even better drink pick to honor the Rebels: local businessman, George Harris, running for Las Vegas mayor on the TEQUILA Party ticket. I mean, these guys are way past the Tea party — they are liquored up and ready to rule.

The recipe here is: pour a shot of tequila. Put it down.
